This Cuddly Cow is Convinced She’s a Puppy

Many farm animals can become attached to their caretakers, but no one has quite as close of a relationship with their owners as this adorable cow.

Australian ranch owner Sally Webster is the caretaker of Beryl, a very charismatic cow. She was born last year and cared for by Webster after her mother died when she was just two days old. She kept her indoors for the first few weeks of her life, along with Webster’s puppies, which made Beryl become accustomed to the space. Although her home is now outdoors on their large farm, she still holds a place in her heart for the Webster residence.

After Webster returned home from a trip to the store, she found Beryl curled up and waiting for her next to the couch, just like a dog.

“She has an amazing memory and is very smart, so she knows where the calf milk lives in the laundry,” she told The Dodo. “The day she was caught in the lounge took me by surprise.”

“I really didn’t expect to see her making herself comfortable sitting on the carpet. But really, she isn’t meant to be inside,” Webster said. “She’s just cheeky.”

Although Beryl can’t spend much time indoors today due to her size, she does love spending time with her beloved humans out on the farm – especially when it’s time to cuddle.

It’s clear that Webster’s love and care is something that Beryl will appreciate forever, just like a good old fashioned belly rub.
