D.J., Uncle Jesse and … Comet? Full House fans are freaking out over the Tanner family's adorable pup — who should be in dog heaven by now. A golden retriever that looks exactly like the original series' four-legged star Comet appears in Netflix's new Fuller House trailer.
Comet took walks around San Francisco and cuddled up to Michelle Tanner back when Full House aired, from 1987 to 1995. In the new sneak peek, the furry animal waits patiently for D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), Uncle Jesse (John Stamos), Uncle Joey (Dave Coulier) and other returning favorites to open the door.
Needless to say, the scene caught viewers off guard. "Susan just started crying because she realized comet from full house is dead," one Twitter commenter wrote on Thursday. A second joked: "What happened 2 original Comet in #FullHouse? Did he die? When? How? Is the new dog n #FullerHouse Comet's son? Is he a Jr or a bastard pup?"
Other Tanner fans, meanwhile, appeared to google Comet right after watching the teaser. Their findings? Many were blown away that the dog that played the original Comet was the one that starred in 1997's Air Bud.
"Air Bud was also Comet on Full House. Sorry for ruining your childhood," one tweeter wrote. Another added: "Comet from Full House is the same dog as Buddy from Air Bud. That girl that spends 4 hours on Google is the same person as me."
Fuller House debuts on Netflix on February 26.

that ain't Comet #FullerHouse— Caitlin Bitzegaio (@caitorade) December 17, 2015
Why is there a dog in an empty house? And is it related to Comet or is it just a coincidence that its a golden retriever? #FullerHouse— Cash On KTTS (@Cashonktts) December 17, 2015
Bogus that Comet opted out of appearing in the upcoming #FullerHouse.— Othy Schwering (@othy) December 17, 2015
RT if you've been worried about Comet all day. #FullerHouse— Erin Resnick (@enr702) December 17, 2015

So with the New #FullerHouse teaser, Though excited, I got more excited to see another Comet 2.0— Diana Mazzone (@LouiseMazz1) December 17, 2015
So Comet has just been left alone in that house for 20 yrs? #FullerHouse— danny zaccagnino (@dannyzacc) December 17, 2015
Loved the #FullerHouse teaser. But Comet is certainly dead. Who is this new dog? 🐶— Morgan Zurn (@Morgan_Zurn) December 17, 2015
There's a puppy that looks like Comet in the #FullerHouse trailer!— Stefanie (@stefmcguire) December 17, 2015
Holy shit, Comet's still alive?!#FullerHouse— Michael Subjack (@MSubjack) December 17, 2015
If #FullerHouse is 13 episodes of Comet running around the house, I will definitely tune in— Joey Moser (@JoeyMoser83) December 17, 2015
The #FullerHouse trailer just depressed the crap out of me--mainly because I have to accept the fact that Comet has been dead for years.— Melissa (@melsano) December 17, 2015
This #fullerhouse teaser trailer is stupid. Plus, it gives away the fate of Comet.— Intern Alex (@internalex) December 17, 2015
What everyone is missing from that #FullerHouse "trailer-but-not-really" is that Comet is apparently immortal— Tim Baysinger (@tim_bays) December 17, 2015
Comet had a kid and left it to fend for itself for 20 years? At least it's self sufficient and can groom itself. #FullerHouse— Melisa D. Monts (@SheIsNotMelissa) December 17, 2015
So, Comet Still Lives In That House And All Alone?? He Sure Aged Well. #FullerHouse— ⓜⓘⓐ ⓦⓐⓛⓛⓐⓒⓔ (@Grunge_Girl7) December 17, 2015
So…Comet has Benjamin Button syndrome and has been living alone in the house this entire time is what I got from that #FullerHouse trailer— Ashley Esqueda (@AshleyEsqueda) December 17, 2015
Oy, that #FullerHouse teaser. I'm very dubious about what's behind that door. Also, is that dog the ghost of Comet?— Keri Ferencz (@keriferencz) December 17, 2015
The dog that played Comet Tanner also played Air Bud?! That's too much fame for one dog!— Amanda Clingerman (@aeclinger) December 17, 2015
Comet from Full House and Air Bud are one in the same #mindblown— Zachary Harr (@zjharr) December 17, 2015
I just found out that that the dog that played Air Bud also played Comet in Full House. That dog is more talented than me in so many ways.— Travis Hanson (@The_T_dog_) December 17, 2015
Air Bud was also Comet on Full House. Sorry for ruining your childhood.— Eric Newman (@Eric_Newman23) December 17, 2015
