WATCH: Who was more excited to see dad come home? The pup or the 9-month-old?

Army soldier Billy Redheffer was in high demand when he got back from drill last week. Both his nine-month-old daughter, Savannah and "the original baby," Caroline the dog, needed dad's attention.

"Just a case of trying to get daddy to notice you (the original baby) instead of the new baby," Redheffer's wife Shannon wrote in a Facebook post.

"She has to be the first one to be greeted. If not she just inserts herself," Shannon told Storyful

Caroline does eventually surrender to Savannah's tiny fists.
