The bond between a dog named Rookie and his family’s big, brown cow is unlike any you have heard of before!
From the moment Rookie joined the family, he not only bonded with his human owners, but also with the family’s cow. In fact, the cow became a mother figure to Rookie. The two were simply inseparable. They lived, ate, played, and slept right by each other’s side in a farmer’s barn.
The dog followed the cow everywhere and the cow could often be seen licking his coat, cuddling down with him and letting him sleep on her back.
Sadly, a day came when the family had to sell the cow as they could not afford the expenses that came with taking care of two cows.
The puppy was absolutely heartbroken. He barked and cried all the time and even stopped eating regularly. He would sit in the barn and wait for hours as if with hope of his best-friend returning.
Then, one day, Rookie heard a familiar moo from a distance. Without hesitation, he ran from his yard and followed the voice all the way to its source. There he found his best-friend! The cow had been sold to another farmer in the village, but was still close enough for him to hear her.
Rookie’s owner followed after him and brought him back home many times. Rookie’s sad puppy eyes tugged on the family’s heart, but they hoped he would get over the loss and move on, but that never happened.
Soon the family couldn’t bear to see the poor dog in such a down and out state, they realized how much the separation affected their fury friend and decided to buy back the cow.
To make sure Rookie was never left alone again, they also bought another pup to keep him company.
The reunion is such a precious tear-jerking moment. You may want to keep the tissues nearby!
