If you are a lover of all things cute, sit back and enjoy this cuteness overload. Captured on video for all to enjoy is a dog playing with a prairie dog.

Dogs and prairie dogs are both social creatures, so the fact that they are interacting is not unusual. What is unusual is that prairie dogs especially are known to socialize with their own kind, not dogs. In the video, you will see the dog lovingly nudging the prairie dog. The prairie dog uses his front feet to hug and push the dog back.

The claws on a prairie dog are very sharp; however, this little guy is not using his claws to inflict harm. Much like cats play with their humans, this prairie dog is not inflicting any harm on him. The dog is being very gentle with his little friend. A dog of that size is easily capable of biting, shaking and quickly killing a prairie dog.
