Animal lovers, try to contain your enthusiasm as you watch this seal scoot right up to a yellow labrador and put its front flippers around the canine. The marine mammal pats the dog on the back and rests its head on top of it in an adorable clip shot at Le Cap Ferret on the coast of southwestern France and uploaded earlier this month by YouTube user Elise Frebourg.

It is the latest in unlikely animal “friendships” to go viral, from a meerkat and a husky, a cheetah and a puppy and an owl and a cat.
