Lynne Morris was taking a stroll on the beach in Fife, Scotland with her husband when she noticed an adorable meeting between a Boxer and an inquisitive seal. Fortunately she was carrying a camera at the time and documented the extraordinary play date for the rest of us to enjoy.

In an interview with The Daily Mail, the 53-year-old human resources manager said: “We had been walking to Aberdour castle when we saw a woman playing fetch on the seafront.

She threw the ball into the water and without hesitation the dog ran in. The ball landed near a seal and the dog was fascinated by the creature. Instead of reaching for his ball he began circling the seal. They were incredibly docile and it was wonderful to watch.”

“Then, the dog went right up to the pup for a sniff and he cheekily slapped him on the face with its flipper.”

“He was stunned and didn’t fancy going near his ball so just headed back to his owner.”

“I take my camera everywhere and couldn’t believe how lucky I was to get this encounter on film, it was remarkable.”
