Cheyenne Tyler Berry was washing dishes at home the other day when she noticed something outside the kitchen window that caught her eye — and then stole her heart.
An older man and his small dog were peacefully strolling down the sidewalk. They appeared to be out for a stroll.
But, as Berry watched from afar, they quickly became friends.
The dog, who seemed ecstatic, was the first thing Berry noticed from her window.
Berry described him as “jumping and getting excited.”
When she moved closer to get a better look, she discovered that the pup’s eager interest had been piqued by her neighbor’s orange cat, George, who was perched on a small wall.
Instead of nudging the dog away, his owner did the exact opposite. To make friends with George, he lifted the dog up.
Here’s a video of that moment:

For the two pets out enjoying their day, the encounter was brief, but the tender exchange of joy is something Berry will never forget.
“It made me cry because I was shocked I got to see such a sweet moment in person,” Berry said in an online post, summarizing her emotions: “Since then, I haven’t stopped grinning.”
