These videos of a cheetah chasing and playing with its doggie companion are just awesome.

I wonder if the big cat ever accidentally injures its canine companion, as sometimes happens with humans who’ve raised big cats from birth. I suspect that dogs can read the body language of the cat better — and communicate better too. But I’d love to ask a zookeeper that!

    Cheetahs are among the smaller and most docile of the big cats. Doesn’t mean they are good pets, but I wouldn’t be too worried for the dog. You can find many videos on Youtube of Cheetahs climbing upon the vehicles in safari expeditions.
