With summer winding down, pet parents from coast to coast are hustling to plan their end-of-summer vacations. Sometimes we can bring our dogs along for the ride — hooray! But other times, we’ve gotta find a great pet sitter and hit the road sans furry friends. For those occasions, we’ve compiled this list exploring what your dogs are thinking when you finally come home again. They leap in the air, lick your face and sniff you from head to toe. But what’s really going through their minds when you first walk in the door? Let’s find out.

1. My human is here, do I look OK?
