Keira Rathbone - Typewriter Artist Soldier and dog’s reunion video a Web hit | The Upshot How do you say "welcome home" in dog? We're pretty sure this Great Dane Emmitt, nicknamed "Thunderpaws," got his super-excited message across. The overgrown pooch was reuniting with his dad, Trevor Chowder, who was returning from deployment in Afghanistan after spending nine months apart. The loving giant, who is normally not allowed to jump up (you'll see why when you watch the video — he's as tall as his human companion) stares into Trevor's eyes and gives him a hug while standing on his hind legs.
