When I was a little girl, I had the most beautiful German Shepard dog. A hundred and twenty pounds of furry muscle with a gorgeous silvery coat. I also had a cat, a tough old orange tabby tomcat that my mom found in a garbage bag in the irrigation ditch behind our house.
Some of my best memories come from watching the two of them together, particularly their charming ear cleaning routine. The cat would spend an hour licking clean the dog’s giant ears, and then, in turn, the dog would try to delicately shove his huge tongue into the cat’s ears.
Perhaps that’s why I fell in love with this video of a massive Great Dane cuddling a tiny kitten. Enjoy.
