Some Sheep Obey Their Herding Dogs, Pet the Lamb Thinks She’s One of Them

In the Highlands of Scotland lives one orphaned lamb who just can’t seem to remember that he’s a sheep and not a pup. Capturing the heart of the Internet, Pet the Lamb stormed onto the scene of animal confusion with this adorable video of her playing with her dog siblings in the snow.

The original YouTube post by owner Jemma Mackenzie states that the appropriately-named “Pet” began following the sheep herding pups and mimicking them instead of obeying them. Orphaned at a quite a young age, Pet took immediately to the oldest herding collie Dice, and started to soon act as though Dice was her mum.

This behavior continued with the other three pups, Fly, Jess and Megan, and Pet soon began to cozy up to Dice in bed, snuggling in for the cold winter. As the video description says, Pet the lamb is free to roam the hillside with her fellow sheep friends, but always seems to stay to hang around with her true family, the dogs.

Pet the lamb can be found on the land at the Torran Bed and Breakfast in Ullapool, frolicking and fetching with her pup pals most of the time.
