The Oklahoma Fire Department wrote on Facebook, “the dog almost appears to be saying “thank you” to Major Dooner.” And with the pup’s big smile, it’s not hard to see what they mean.

“This looks like the beginning of a great friendship!” Amazing work to the fire department and Major Dooner on the incredibly fluffy save.
