Interspecies relationships induce so many genuine "Awww!" moments, it's no wonder people have taken notice to the springtime friendship that's blossomed between a goose and deer at a Buffalo, NY cemetery.

Over the past week, the unusual pair has spent loads of quality time together. The mate-less goose nests in a large urn pot while the deer keeps an eye on his friend, making sure she's protected from predators.

Like humans, geese typically mate for life. So when the female lays eggs and nests, it's the male's job to protect his leading lady. It appears as though this goose no longer has a mate, hence the deer stepping in to take over the male's job.
