Who says cats and dogs don't get along?

The Dallas Zoo this week celebrated special birthdays for two of its unlikely inhabitants -- best friends Winspear the cheetah and Amani the Labrador.

The pairing may sound like an odd couple, but the animals have spent the first year of their lives together without any issues.

"They're best buds," said Sean Green, vice president of guest experiences at the Dallas Zoo. "A lot of people have said, 'How does that work?' To be honest with you, since about two to three months of age, they've been paired up together."

On Thursday, they both turned 1 year old.

So, how did these two celebrate their birthdays? With a giant red, white and blue popsicle.

"With over 30 gallons of water, 2% milk, and low-sodium chicken broth for flavoring, they LOVED it!" a post on the Dallas Zoo's Facebook page said.
