Abby's description set the stage: "Kissed my best friend to see what would happen". She's lying on the bed next to the tiny pooch and goes in for a little smooch. The fluff ball looks a bit confused at first, giving the camera a quick look while deciding what to do next.

But then it reacts in the most adorable way – with a little peck of its own!
