I hope this video brings a smile to your face. The backstory and teaser image can be found here. Here's a snippet about this unlikely and heart-warming friendship between a dog and a dolphin.  

"Thousands of Global Animal readers, and the friends they've shared with, have watched the amazing video of Ben, the labrador, swimming and frolicking with his buddy, Duggie the Dolphin, off the coast of Ireland. We thought you might like the backstory on this unusual relationship. It's a tale of learning to love again and the meaning of home. According to residents, when Duggie lost her dolphin mate in 2006, she stayed in the area off Ireland's Tory island where her partner died. Fortunately, Duggie soon met the seafaring labrador, Ben, and they've spent their days playing together ever since. When dolphin pods come by, Duggie visits with them for a while, then soon returns to her home and best friend. Can it get any more uplifting? - Global Animal"

We're so very lucky to have these types of glimpses into the amazing world of animals and witness these sorts of close and improbable friendships.
