Dog tricks are getting more and more impressive everyday, but this gesture by a cute border collie named Lottie is so loving we can't believe it's rehearsed.

Lottie's owner asks her who her best friend is, and in a not-so-shocking dispelling of the age old saying, proceeds to wrap her arms around her German Shepard pal Grizzly in an adorable embrace.

Rehearsed trick, dominant canine behavior, or whatever lens you choose to look at this through, it's still an adorable gesture and shows how close two dogs can be.
