WATCH: Dog and Dolphin Friends Go for a Swim Every Morning

Unlikely animal friendships are simply the best — after all, the only thing that can beat one adorable animal is two or more adorable animals hanging out like old pals.

In this case,┬áthe town of Middletown on Ireland’s Tory Island has dog and dolphin friends that routinely go for a morning swim in the brisk northern waters together. Their names Ben the Dog — a Labrador retriever — and Duggie the bottle-nosed dolphin, and they seem to cherish their time in the water together.

The footage comes courtesy of the BBC program Countryfile.

As of late, it seems Ben will pace a dock near the shore before launching himself into the water and going for a swim with Duggie, who often even offers Ben a ride on his back if he needs a little help finding his way back to shore.

Watch the adorable video above.
