SAVAGE, Minn. — A 2-year-old Minnesota boy has a new best friend.

The boy’s father, Chad Nelson, took video of his son Conway throwing a ball across a fence into a neighbor’s backyard.

On the other side is the neighbor’s dog Dozer, a Labrador retriever who happily returns the ball to the ecstatic boy as they play a game of fetch.

It’s a video that will make you forget about all the bad going on in the world.

Less than 24 hours later, the post on Twitter had been retweeted more than 90,000 times and liked 350,000 times.

“It was just a cute thing,” Nelson told KARE 11. “We just thought Conway was being cute and our friends would like it and all of sudden it’s being shared to thousands of people.”

Nelson said Conway and Dozer played fetch for several minutes with the dog returning the ball each time the boy threw it over the fence.

“Conway just loves playing catch,” Nelson said. “We have two dogs but neither one will play fetch. So he was pretty excited to have someone that would.”
