Dog and sea lion playing fetch at beach.  This video has gone viral of the two of them playing together.  The video was recorded over the weekend on a beach in Santa Cruz.   It shows a man playing fetch with his dog when a curious sea lion pops up and joined in.

First you see the dog, who’s name is Moe, chasing after the ball in the beach waves.  Then, a sea lion swims up to the beach to see what was going on.  Moe sniffs him out and then the sea lion gives some loving barks back signaling to the dog he wants to play.  Moe never barkes back as if he was scared or worried about the sea lion.

The story reported by NBC5, says Dave Nelson, who is the dogs owner, grabs his phone and started filming.  Meanwhile,  both of them are waiting for Dave to throw the ball into the water.   Both the dog and sea lion swim hard and fast to recover the ball playing together.  The dog and sea lion playing fetch at the beach has now gone viral.

Moe made it to the ball first and returned it to his owner.  The sea lion waits patiently in the water for the next throw.  The two continue to play in the water chasing the ball as Dave is in disbelief that this is happening.
