As any animal lover knows, dogs are capable of feeling intense joy. (If cats feel it, by contrast, they sure don’t seem to show it.) As proof, check out this video of an Irish Terrier that literally leaps for joy after it finds its owner hiding nearby.

As its owner films, the dog runs in circles and even stands on its hind legs as it scans the surrounding area in confusion. Cruel? A bit. But wait, it gets cuter.

Eventually, the pooch spies its master and bounds excitedly to his side with the doggy equivalent of a satisfied grin. Now if only our friends and family were that happy to see us.
