MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – It doesn't get much cuter than a toddler and a dog playing fetch, unless it's a toddler and a dog playing fetch over a backyard fence.
A now-viral video posted on Facebook shows a 2-year-old boy playing a game of over-the-fence catch with a neighbor's dog in Minneapolis.
Chad Nelson posted the video of his son, Conway, who was playing at a friend's house. Erin Richter took the video of Conway, which has now been viewed millions of times.
This fence won’t stop my two-year-old from playing with his new best friend. Video was taken by: Erin Richter and my wife sent it to me. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BdiRAcjvM0c&feature=youtu.be#Posted by Chad Nelson on Wednesday, July 18, 2018
While it was Conway's first time playing fetch with the pup, Richter said her son, Landon, has been playing fetch with their neighbor's dog, Dozer, for more than a year.
Landon initiated the game when he was just a 1 1/2 years old. He's now 3 and Landon and Dozer still play often.
"My son stops playing once the ball gets too slobbery," Richter said.
Watch Landon play with Dozer in a video from 2017:
The joys of a dog without owning a dog! Thanks Jena Splettstoeser for letting us play with Dozer.Posted by Dereck Richter on Tuesday, April 4, 2017
