Sometimes it can be kind of hard to make friends, especially when they're a tenth of your size.

This Saint Bernard isn't sure what to do about this tiny kitten -- can he play with it? Should he just sniff it? What IS this adorable creature?

He tries unsuccessfully to resist the urge to pat his new friend...But in the end, he decides that maybe he should just sit and bask in the cuteness without question.

The St. Bernard is a breed of very large working dog from the Italian and Swiss Alps, originally bred for rescue. The breed has become famous through tales of alpine rescues, as well as for its enormous size.

The earliest written records of the St. Bernard breed are from monks at the hospice at the Great St. Bernard Pass in 1707, with paintings and drawings of the dog dating even earlier.

The most famous St. Bernard to save people at the pass was Barry (sometimes spelled Berry), who reportedly saved somewhere between 40 and 100 lives. There is a monument to Barry in the Cimetière des Chiens, and his body was preserved in the Natural History Museum in Berne.
