Like most Golden Retrievers, Gunner is adorable, friendly, and loves to make new friends. Unlike most dogs, however, Gunner’s best friend is a dolphin named Delta.
The duo has been the closest of pals since Gunner was 8 weeks old and Delta was 4 years old. Though their friendship is the stuff fairytales are made of, a recent photo on Twitter caused a big splash.
A guy named Ken aka @_woolyback tweeted out an image of Gunner giving Delta a big wet doggy kiss. Along with the photo, Ken wrote, “Sorry to interrupt, important news.”
As of this writing, over 1.3 million people have liked the image and hundreds of thousands have shared it.
One woman, @mz_jolene, replied to the tweet by stating, “I love this! My heart is so heavy these days but this lightened it up immensely. Thank you! We need LOVE right now!”
Delta lives at the Dolphin Research Center in Grassy Key, Florida, and Gunner has been hanging out with his finned friend from the very start. The folks at the Center shared a throwback image of the pair so followers could see how the friendship evolved.
We wish you both a long and happy life!

Mom Enters Barn To Check On Horse, Finds The Funniest Thing On Horse’s Head
Horses, with their goofy grins and easy-going nature, are often considered to be “big dogs”. In this hilarious video, mom Nancy Elwood walks in on her horse befriending the most peculiar creature and we are so glad she got this on camera!
Like any other day, Nancy walks into the barn with the intention of feeding her horses. She notices that Rocky, one of her horses, has something strange perched on his head. She moves in closer to find Chickaleta, the farm’s chicken, cozily napping away on Rocky’s head!
Chickaleta is so comfortable with Rocky that she casually takes a stroll on his back and nuzzles up to him without any fear. Chickaleta is also friendly with the other horses in the barn, but Rocky is definitely her favorite!
Nancy is completely swayed by this unique bond between Rocky and Chickaleta. It is really quite refreshing to see such accepting and unprejudiced friendships between animals that are polar opposites in size and characteristics. We thank Nancy for sharing this charming little video!
