“Lookit, they want to make friends!”

Global News viewer Melanie Yelland-DeSylva never expected to see the close encounter she witnessed on Monday after stopping on the banks of the Fraser River.

Yelland-DeSylva’s six-year-old dog Dakota was boating with friends and family when he jumped out to explore the tip of Crescent Island, near Mission, B.C.

A few minutes later a seal popped out of the water in front of the pit bull-cross.

The pair shared a sniff and then got even closer — sharing what appears to be a kiss — before the seal swam away.

Yelland-DeSylva says Dakota loves the water.
