These Pugs Welcomed A Sailor Home In The Most Epic Fashion

U.S. Navy Airman Michael Schiela has spent months out of state for training. He was deeply missed by his family, but no one missed him more than his dogs.

Lucky for the four puppers, Michael just returned home and is waiting to see them!

The pugs - Pixie, Pierre, Seamus, and Rooney - have been pining for Michael since he left, so his family set up a little surprise for them. Michael returned to his parents' house in Philly, where the pugs currently live. Tina Finnegan, Michael's mom, enlisted the help of the whole family to plan the reunion.

"My younger son put the dogs in a bedroom upstairs when we pulled up to the house from the airport. When Michael came in, he released them," she said.

When the dogs were released out of their room, they went WILD! No one expected them to get so excited, not even Tina.

"I knew they were going to be thrilled. They missed him badly," says Tina. "I wasn't really expecting them to maul him quite like that though!"

The pugs jump, crawl, and kiss all over Michael as he sits on the couch, taking it all in! The family recorded a video of the reunion and it's pretty much the cutest thing ever.

They are just TOO DARN EXCITED! And I'm sure Michael was pretty pumped to see his pugs, too!
