Was there ever a sweeter - and yet more tragic - tell of animal friendship than this video?

For the Rottweiler and the deer love running alongside each other... but they're separated by a fence!

Verily, it is a 'Romeo And Juliet' for our times. And for the animal kingdom.

Still, we probably think it's just as well - for the deer's sake - that the fence is there. We're not sure how 'friendly' the Rottweiler would be without it...
