Toddler’s best friend: Dog patiently waits for tyke to finish splashing in puddle

Patience is a virtue. Watson the dog has plenty of it.

In a heartwarming video gone viral, Watson, a 12-year-old Shar Pei, patiently waits for his toddler owner to finish testing out his rubber boots in a "mesmerizing puddle" while on their country walk.

When the little boy has enough of the splashing, he and Watson continue on their way.

To up the heart-melting factor, the video uses Queen's "You're My Best Friend" to help tell their adorable story.

"Watson the dog stands by while the boy does a quick assessment of the puddle situation. Could this be the cutest video ever?" YouTube user Julian Burrett posted.

To answer the rhetorical question, Julian, yes. Yes, it is.
