There's nothing better than coming home to a loving pooch who's always ready to dish out the kisses and cuddles. But some pups always go that extra mile for their humans!

This happens every day!

And that includes seven-year-old Xena, an adorable Labrador who has a very special way of greeting her owner. Because when Xena's dog mum, 32-year-old Kelly Seaton, comes home from a tough day at the office, her pup is always waiting by the door with a gift.

Sometimes it's a long lost sock. Other times it's a roll of sellotape, a feather duster, or an empty bottle.

Here are 8 amazing tricks to teach your dog

A few of Xena's more bizarre gifts include a random green bean and a single piece of dried pasta. But hey, it's the thought that counts!

"Xena has always brought me gifts. The first few times she did it, I didn't think anything of it,"  said Kelly. "And the first time she brought me something random, I thought maybe she couldn't find her toys, but then it kept on happening."

Paying out in belly rubs

Xena's gift-bearing is obviously super adorable, but this pup might not be as selfless as we first thought. And that's because Xena always asks for something in return - a little belly rub!

Then again, that's a small price to pay for having this kind of cuteness in your life!
