Presumably, her excited pooches were of the yappy persuasion when they could just hear her roll up in the car.
To makes sure they could see her coming, she drilled three holes for each dog, one for their snouts and then another two for their eyes so that they can see exactly what's going on. Simple yet oh so effective.
The video shows the holes in action, with the dog's owner pulling up to the front of her house. You see the first little face pop up, followed by its little mate, who isn't far behind.
It's captioned: "Mommy is home," and so far, the original clip has more than two million likes.
It certainly cheered viewers up anyway, with people taking inspiration from the simple pet hack.
One person wrote: "You need to patent that idea honestly, that is the best thing I've ever seen. So cute, but make sure you came out with it if you did. So cool."
Another said: "Smartest thing ever. You can see but you can't bark!
Someone else commented: "Imagine you have a bad day and then you go home to that."
As if we didn't already have all the evidence we needed that pets are our saviours, one woman's golden retriever could literally have saved her life when she came home after a night out.
Hannah Quintus uses a pet camera to keep an eye on her dog Jax when she's not at home, hoping to make sure he's okay.
One day, the device was still filming when she came in after an evening out - when she admitted she'd had a 'few too many'.
Thankfully, two-and-a-half-year-old Jax was on hand (or, rather, paw) to make sure Hannah got into bed safely, watching on as his tipsy owner moved around the house.
In the footage, which has been viewed millions of times online, Hannah can be seen throwing pillows onto her bed, but ends up stumbling backwards.
As she puts out her hands to help steady herself, quick-thinking Jax leaps into action, stopping Hannah from falling by jumping up and placing his front paws on her shoulders.
He then guides her back over to her bed, before gently pressing on her shoulders so that she sits down.
There is no doubt about it, Jax is a very, very good boy.
