    Smile My dog greeted me

    My dog greeted me at the door when I came home.


    Which one of the following is close to the above semantically?

    My dog waited to meet me at the door ...
    My dog came to meet me at the door ...


    If neither, then how would you reword it? Thanks.

    None of these sentences mean the same as the original sentence.

    To greet in "dog's" terms means to excitedly bark and/or jump around his master while wagging its tail.

    Now....you try to reword your sentence using this information.
