The owner of a corgi has captured on camera the friendship between her dog and a tiny baby bunny. The corgi, Ripley, met the little rabbit one day while she was out walking with her owner, Lareina Tan.

After that, whenever Ripley left the house in West Lafayette, Indiana, for a walk, the bunny would pop up, ready to play.

‘This has happened two days in a row. We’d take the corgi out to potty, and she’d go sniffing around. Bunny pops out, play-date starts,’ Tan wrote on Reddit.

‘I was lucky enough to have my phone on me the third time this happened.’

Tan was slightly concerned her dog, who is named after Ellen Ripley from the Hollywood movie Alien, might hurt the rabbit, but realized after watching the pair that she had no intention of injuring her new playmate.  ‘The bunny ran around in circles around us instead of away, and jumped onto Ripley’s front paw while she was sitting. I want to believe the bunny chose to hang with her,’ wrote Tan. Corgis are of Welsh origin, trained to herd animals. They’re reportedly one of the few breeds that can herd geese.
