Dog Hasn't Seen His Owner In Months — But Knows She's Hiding Somewhere

<p>Facebook/Maria's Journey</p>

It's been 7 long months since Sandy the dog has seen his owner, Maria - but he clearly never lost her scent.

Upon returning home to her parents' house after living abroad, Maria decided to turn her long-awaited reunion with Sandy into a little game of hide-and-seek. So, after she's found a hiding spot in an upstairs room, the happy dog is set loose in the house. Amazingly, he seems to immediately recognize she's near just by smell alone.

And he couldn't be happier when he finally finds her.

"So I returned home to Scotland this morning for a week ... I was reunited with my best friend after 7 months," Maria wrote on Facebook. "Been through thick and thin with this boy."

But Sandy's excitement at seeing his owner apparently hasn't ended there. Since Maria's return, he's been thrilled to find her anew each morning - waking her up with a shower kisses.

It's doesn't get much sweeter than that.
