What happens when you're a rescue pup, your best friend has been hospitalized for five weeks, and some strange-looking fella who's fifty pounds lighter shows up? You learn to stop trusting your eyes and start trusting your nose!

In addition to the dog (is there anything more perfectly demonstrative of happiness than a happy dog?) the joy/laughter of the family/friends in the background is pretty great too.

Yep, perfect example of how expressive just one part of a dog's body language can be. There's a great moment where Willie's ears went from "who dis?" to "BESTEST FRAND!" in the brief instant before Maximum Wigglebutt Overdrive was engaged.

I like how his initially standoffishness is also decidedly confused and a bit hesitant. Like he seems to recognize Best Friend's voice, but his eyes aren't matching and it's driving him nuts.

But then the nose knows and all is settled and it's time to WIGGLE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AND WAG MUCH TAIL.
