Watch an Adorable Baby Elephant and Dog Act Like The Odd Couple

Published On 08/26/2015 Published On 08/26/2015

A baby elephant named Yindee, from the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand, recently met a small dog.

The two played for a while, mostly chasing each other, as elephants and dogs tend to do. After a while, the two got tired of running around and just stood still and chilled in the grass. Sometimes you just need a moment of repose, you know?

At one point, Yindee lifted up some dirt with his trunk. It's not clear whether or not he meant to hit the dog with it, but he didn't. We're going to assume that was intentional and out of respect for his new friend.
