Duffy the Irish terrier has seen a lot of troubles. Last year, he was diagnosed with diabetes, and the resulting struggle to control his blood sugar levels left him blind.

Eventually, Duffy's family was finally able to manage his blood sugar levels with medication and he underwent surgery to restore his sight. This video shows him seeing his family for the first time afterward, and it's exactly as heartwarming as you'd expect.

Uploaded by Benjamin May of Cogan Station, Pennsylvania, the video shows an overjoyed Duffy being reunited with his family, including May's parents. Someone must be cutting onions around here, because … excuse us, we're going to need a minute.
