Isn't it ironic how after a long trip abroad we can't wait to get back to the people and job we escaped weeks before? It's what makes a house "home", really. But can you imagine this teen world traveler's surprise when she realizes there's now a happy pint-sized puppy waiting for her?

Cue the delighted tears of joy.
