An Otterly Adorable Friendship

Here at PetInsider, we love pets and animals of all shapes, sizes, and species. We especially love it when we find some unusual friendships between some unique furry friends. We found a video of one such pair up in Kodiak, AK that you have to see to believe.

So this happened last night when jo and I were walking our new puppy. I think the puppy has a new friend.

Yes, that is 4 blissful minutes of a puppy playing with a river otter. Isn’t that amazing? This wild animal and this little pup had such a great time just romping around on the dock. The two rolled around together and even chased each other down the pier. You can tell that neither the dog nor the otter felt threatened, and both were just in it to have a good time.

The puppy probably thought this guy was just some new species of very slippery dog. The otter was probably used to the dogs on the dock and loves playing with his canine pals. Otters are known to be very playful, so it’s no surprise that he immediately rolled over on his back to show the pup he was ready for fun.

At the end of the video, you can even see that the otter looks a little sad that his playmate is leaving. Is this the beginning of the most adorable reality TV show about a beautiful budding friendship? We can only hope.
