Adorable toddler and pup play a game of fetch despite the backyard fence dividing them

Dogs and babies like peanut butter and chocolate: always a winning combination. It's a point proven to be true yet again by this adorable video shared to Twitter, Tuesday.

In this video from photojournalist Chad Nelson captured by a friend, his young son plays fetch with a high-energy pup, despite the fence dividing them from one another.

"A fence can’t stop my two-year-old from playing with his new best friend," Nelson tweeted.

Nelson tells Mashable via email that his wife took his children to play at a friend's house, where a neighbor's dog Dozer was eager to play. The dog popped his head over the fence to a drop a ball for Nelson's son to pick up.

"My son, who loves to play ball, ran over and threw it back over the fence," Nelson tells Mashable.

Though Nelson and his family have two dogs at home, he says they're not big on fetch. He thinks his son "just thought it was silly the dog kept throwing the ball back."

We're sorry to hear that Nelson's dogs are total fetch duds, but hopefully Dozer and his new friend can reunite for a fence-less playdate of their own in the near future.
