The long wait was worth it for a sailor and the dog eagerly awaiting his 'daddy's' return home. 

In this video, which was shot in Australia, a dog named Duke can be seen camping out by the front window of his house, sedately watching cars pass by. 

That is until he sees a grey truck drive up and into the driveway. 

Inside was his owner, Jimmy Meredith, who had just returned from a two-month deployment. 

Their heart-warming reunion in the driveway was filmed by Meredith's girlfriend Yasmin Lindenberg.
