Surf photographer Dave Nelson and his dog Mokuleia had the most incredible experience recently when playing fetch on a beach in Santa Cruz, California.

The pair were out for their daily walk when a curious wild seal came into shore and introduced himself. Not only that, the seal chased after the ball too!

Nelson shared the video on Facebook:

“Almost every morning I take Moe (Mokuleia) to the beach,” Nelson wrote on Facebook. “She loves it, I love it and it’s been beautiful.”

“She has had a buddy lately who’s been following her every move. Up and down the beach he swims and follows us. We call him Sammy!” Nelson continued.

“Anyway, Sammy finally introduced himself a couple days ago and swam all the way in. Moe dropped her ball (she never ever does that) and she waded out a few feet. They ended up smelling each other and went nose to nose for a second, I was blown away. It was obvious they liked each other and Sammy even gave a couple soft barks saying hello.”

Soon after they said hello, “They started playing and even played fetch together,” Nelson described. “To say it was beautiful would be an understatement.”

It is an amazing moment!
