Two very special friends at the Dallas Zoo are celebrating an important milestone: their first birthday.

Winspear the cheetah and Amani the black Labrador both turned 1 year old Thursday. They were treated to a chicken-flavored popsicle cake.

The best friends live, eat and play together at the Dallas Zoo. Zookeepers have raised the duo together since they were two months old.

Zoo experts found the lab had a calming influence on the cheetah cub, which was important in his preparation for spending time in the public eye.

A second cub, Kamau, was also being raised with Winspear and Amani but sadly died of pneumonia in January.
