As heartwarming homecomings go, seeing “Chuck” the boxer welcome home his owner is simply awesome.

Chuck’s owner had been serving overseas for eight months when he returned home in March, and Chuck just couldn’t contain his excitement.

The video has gone viral with more than three million views within 10 days.

It’s not Chuck’s first brush with Internet stardom. The dog became famous for a similar greeting when the soldier returned home after serving overseas in 2011.
