Have you ever seen a Tibetan Mastiff?  It’s a huge dog that looks even bigger when next to a small child.

These beautiful animals can stand more than two feet tall and weigh up to 150 pounds.   They are also fairly gentle creatures as you can see in the video.  The big dog Simba is extremely patient with the young girl named Weiwei.

There’s a part of me that fears for her safety should she do something to upset the dog, like pull on his ears or accidentally step on his head.   He could probably swallow her whole if he wanted to, but he won’t.   Simba and Weiwei are best friends as you can tell.
