Dogs might be a man’s best friend, but the bond between a pup and a little girl is equally unbreakable. In the latest installment of their series of hide-and-seek videos, watch as Sebastian the Newfoundland lets his nose do the work in order to locate his missing mate, Sierra. No patio furniture was harmed in the making of this cute clip.

It’s not the first time Sebastian has been called upon to locate the stealthy Sierra. The Newfie is literally drooling with excitement to find Sierra as she leads him on another backyard brain-teaser. This one proves a little more challenging for Sebastian, but he comes through in the clutch, much to Sierra’s delight!

The two also play hide-and-seek indoors. Watch as Sebby takes on a Christmas-decorated living-room landscape in order to locate his precious cargo. Clearly, Sebastian is a well-trained pup, as he dutifully follows Sierra’s command to “stay” while she finds her hiding place, before letting his “hunting” instinct take over to track down his bestie.

The feelings between Sebastian and Sierra are indeed mutual. Here, Sierra and Sebastian have a cuddle huddle, and Sierra uses it as a teachable moment — about anatomy!
