Animals always surprise us with their ability to feel emotions and love.
Time and time again we hear stories about the unique and tender relationships formed between animals.
This is that kind of story, one that confirms the fact that they are capable of exhibiting empathy and having emotions.
It’s about a tiny brown dog named Rookie and his best friend in the whole world – a cow.
She’s a dairy cow and she’s also his ‘real’ mother, after being left an orphan when young.
She’s often licking Rookie’s coat and nuzzling him, the doggo would even be seen sitting or sleeping on the cow’s back.
The bond they shared was very special, so much so that when the time came for the cow to be sold off, Rookie from being energetic to the most heartbroken dog in the whole world.
Even though it would be hard for him, the family didn’t have any choice but to sell the cow, because having two was something that they couldn’t afford.
Preparing to be sold off, the mama cow was taken from the enclosure that she and Rookie spent their time together.
When the cow was led outside, Rookie’s grief became apparent, he began howling and crying, and his face reflected a look of utter despair.
His eyes started to get wet, that he almost looked like he was crying real tears when being separated from his “mother”.
Their goodbye was heartbreaking to watch, and the dog can be seen stepping onto the threshold while calling out to the cow – but by then, his mother had completely gone out of sight.
But then one day, he heard a moo-ing nearby, the agile pup immediately ran down the street while his owner chased after him.
He found the cow’s new home – another barn in the village that was close enough to Rookie’s shelter.
The pup couldn’t hide his joy when he saw the cow, and he began barking excitedly and jumping to lick the cow’s face.
But the reunion didn’t last for long and Rookie’s owner found him and carried him home despite clear protest.
Back at home, Rookie became inconsolable, losing his usual enthusiasm, and even lost all his appetite.
The owners became worrid of his sadness, as all he did was wonder around the enclosure, waiting for his momma cow to return.
The owners couldn’t handle it and decided to bring back his mother, and also introduced a new doggo friend for Rookie to play with!
