Video: A Dog and His Otter Buddy at Play

Over the past couple of months, we’ve featured great videos of dogs interacting with other animals—elephants, horses, deer, etc.—but here’s one I certainly never expected. The dog’s owner wrote this explanation for the video:


Every evening a river otter comes to play with our daughter’s dog Rio. What was once an acquaintance on the other side of the fence has now become a friend who comes to play through the fence.It has been interesting to watch as their trust of each other has developed over the past several months.

It’s amazing the way dogs are able to build relationships with so many other beings, and it goes to the heart of why we love dogs so much.
