Video Of Two Lions Playing With A Dog Is Absurdly Heartwarming

It's not often you see two lions playing with a dog, so here you go: two lions playing with a dog. Stupidly heartwarming, right?

Okay, okay, it's no Christian The Lion or anything... but it's close. Seriously, it's like they're three dogs, rolling about and teasing each other. But two of them are lions. Weirdly.

Cared for by their owners at the Horseback Africa Wildlife Park, a horse-riding centre about an hour north of Johannesburg, South Africa, there's another video of the two lions elsewhere on YouTube - though it contains no dog-hugging, unfortunately.

You can check it out below, but remember what Christian The Lion taught us: "No, you can't have one of your own." Even if they are very, very, very awesome.
