Every day, Ben the dog can be seen running down the stairs to jump into Ireland's Tory Island harbor. However, he's not just going for a swim. He has someone very important to meet: his friend, Dougie the dolphin.

Ben and Dougie swim for hours together and everyone in the tiny Tory Island community knows about their unlikely friendship. I've truly never seen anything like it, and it absolutely warms my heart.

Watch these interspecies buddies enjoying playtime below.
