Trump just invited Putin to the Whitehouse. Theresa May is grappling to hold together a collapsing government. We already know that 2018 is pretty insane - so here's a spot of light relief.
This adorable video of a two-year-old boy playing catch with his neighbour's dog has gone viral, and we can definitely see why.
Journalist Chad Nelson posted the video to his Twitter account, accompanied by the caption:
A fence can’t stop my two-year-old from playing with his new best friend.
At the time of writing, it's had over 10 million views, nearly 250,000 retweets, and over 800,000 likes.
Many commented on how watching the video is a healing experience.
Others wished the video went on for longer.
While others were overwhelmed by how lovely the scene was.
Some thought that the little boy should have his own dog.
But it turns out that the neighbour's dog is his real favourite.
Some shared their own child and dog catch stories.
While others just wanted to share their gratitude.
We want more!
All hail our doggy overlords.
We hope this offered you the rest bite you require on a Friday.
