The baby Nigerian dwarf goat in the video below doesn’t yet know up from down, but he’ll be damned if that’s going to stop him from getting to the other side of this really chill dog.

At first, our newborn friend timidly approaches the much larger dog, whose name is Pharaoh, and seems to ask himself “If I step on him, will he eat me?”


The dog, a komondor who is either a really good sport or completely hammered, could not seem to care less as the goat first prods and then clumsily tumbles over his exposed tummy.


You are not a feeling human if your heart doesn’t melt at the goat’s triumphant bleating after completing his journey.


Careful though, little man: We’re not sure how many animals will be as cool about you climbing all over them as Pharaoh here.
