They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and that appears to be completely true in the case of this adorable pooch.

After being in Europe for two years, Rebecca Ehalt, of Murrysville, Pa., was finally reunited with her schnauzer, Casey.

Casey was obviously missing Ehalt pretty badly, as evidenced by his shrieks of pure joy when seeing her for the first time. He immediately ran to Ehalt and loved on her pretty hard.

But then, the excitement got to Casey and he appeared to pass out for a few seconds from pure joy! He quickly snapped back to reality, though.

Casey has been given a clean bill of health by the vet and all appears to be well.
