“Good fences make good neighbors,” or so said Robert Frost in his 1914 poem “Mending Wall.” That certainly seems to be the case with this 2-year-old boy and his dog friend.
Although the fence separating the two pals is taller than either of them, it doesn’t prevent them from having a game of fetch. Chad Nelson, a photojournalist from Minnesota, posted a video of his son happily throwing a ball over a fence, and an equally happy-looking dog dropping it back over to the other side.
“A fence can’t stop my two-year-old from playing with his new best friend.” Nelson wrote on Twitter.

The video has been up less than 24 hours and has already been viewed almost 5 million times.
On behalf of The Internet, I respectfully ask that you, your offspring and his new friend make a much longer video. It will cleanse and soothe our weary souls, and for each viewing, a little more strength will return to us.— Kirstine Hansen (@FrokenHansen) July 19, 2018
In other world, I loved it. 🐶🎾❤️

A few people also took the time to point out that this kid has one heck of a throwing arm for a 2-year-old.

That little one has great hand/eye coordination for such a little guy. I see a future in sports for him.— inatwit (@inatwittoday) July 19, 2018
Decades from now, when your son is being inducted into the MLB hall of fame for his pitching accolades, he can point to this video as the start of this pitching career.— Saad (@rhapsaadic) July 19, 2018
Whether or not this kid makes it into the baseball hall of fame remains to be seen, but if they ever open a friendship hall of fame, these two are a shoo-in.
