Washington D.C. [USA], Feb 15 (ANI): NASA spacewoman Christina Koch -- who touched down on earth after completing a record-breaking stay of 328 days on the International Space Station -- was welcomed home by her pet dog in the most endearing and affectionate manner one could possibly imagine.

In a video posted on the Koch's Twitter page, her four-legged friend can be seen frolicking around with its tail wagging at warp speed as the astronaut enters the house after spending nearly 11 months in space, reported Fox News.

The clip that received a whopping 4.3 million-plus views and nearly 150,000 likes came with the caption that read: "Not sure who was more excited. Glad she remembers me after a year!"

Koch now holds the record for the longest stint in orbit by any woman in the history of space travel. (ANI)
