This Cow Lives Happily With Two Dogs And One Couple, And Sometimes Breaks Into The House

This Cow Lives Happily With Two Dogs And One Couple, And Sometimes Breaks Into The House

Mooove over dogs and cats, there’s a new pet in town.

Beryl lives a life of luxury and spends her days snoozing in the living room and eating mangos with her dad in the backyard.

What’s unusual about this is that Beryl is an eight-month-old Brahman calf.

When Australian Rancher Sally Webster and her husband found Beryl the cow, the poor calf had just lost her mother and was in terrible shape. Sally took Beryl home to her ranch in hopes that her company and care would bring some light back into this sweet orphan’s life, but they never expected this.

Sally Webster knew that Beryl was a very unique animal when she rescued her as a baby. But one day after a trip to the market, Sally came home and was greeted by the eight-month-old calf sitting in her living room!

    Somehow Beryl had broken into the house and made herself comfortable on the floor like a family dog.

    “She has an amazing memory and is very smart,” Sally said in an interview. “So she knows where the calf milk lives in the laundry. 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.”

      Beryl’s good behavior is impressive. After breaking into the house, Beryl waited patiently for her family to arrive. She didn’t damage anything or make a mess!

        Sally welcomed Beryl into her home, bottle-feeding and raising her in the house until the calf was ready to live outside.

          Beryl is starting to get the hang of things now that she is almost a year old, but she is still very much a part of Sally’s life.

          “She knows mine and my husband’s voice,” said Sally. “She can be outside grazing out of view and we can call out her name, and she will always bellow back, in a way to reply. Or come to the house.”

            Beryl also loves belly rubs, and is just as playful as the couple’s dogs.

              Beryl and the puppies, Fred and Wilma, have grown up together. Beryl thinks of herself as “one of them.” The calf actually prefers the dogs over other cows.

                While Beryl is likely to grow considerably — Brahman cows can reach a whopping 700 kilograms — Webster said she will likely remain a well-mannered lady.

                  Beryl has become a viral sensation after her parents posted pictures and videos of her antics on social media. You can keep up with Beryl’s adventures with her family on Beryl The Brahman’s Facebook page.

                  12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

                  12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

                  Christmas is approaching fast, and lots of people not only tend to ruin their usual diets, but they also gain a few extra pounds. Based on studies, the majority of people tend to gain additional weight during the holiday season that starts at the Thanksgiving Day and ends with the New Year celebrations. Excessive eating is claimed to be the main cause for the additional weight gain, but it is also due to lack of physical activity and exercise.

                  A lot of individuals out there tend to set aside their fitness routines during the holidays since they believe that they do not have enough time to perform their workouts. And because they feel guilty after the holiday season, most of the gyms and fitness centers are packed with fresh members. Always bear in mind that you can still enjoy the holidays and stay fit at the same time. If you want to stay fit during the holiday season, especially during Christmas and the New Year’s Eve, here are some useful tips that might help you:

                  1. Eat Before Heading Out

                  First, it is best that you eat something before heading out to visits, trips or family dinners. By doing so, you will no longer be tempted to eat a lot or overindulge yourself since you have already eaten. Skipping on meals is not a good idea either, because you will only be forced to eat more later.

                  2. Select The Treats

                  Make sure to select the treats that you eat in a wise manner. You should choose something that you can only enjoy during the holiday season and not something that is readily available all the time.

                  3. Avoid Skipping Meals

                  Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast! Even though it can be tempting to skip on certain meals, believing that it will make up for the treats you consumed in the previous day, don’t do it because it will only lead to counterproductive results.

                  4. Drink With Moderation

                  It is best to regulate your drinking since alcohol, coke or other juices will only add more calories to the ones you already eaten!

                  5. Be Active

                  You should still perform your fitness routine whenever possible and if you can’t do that, simply walk more, park your car some distance away from the store or just use the stairs!

                  6. Get Out Of The House

                  Make the holidays a family affair and plan outdoor activities where everyone is involved. Even a snowball fight in the backyard will burn a lot of calories and will keep the children entertained.

                  7. Don’t Skip Your Strength Workouts

                  Always remember to perform your strength training in order to maintain that muscle mass you worked hard to get. You might be tempted to use lightweights and just do some cardio, but you can burn just as many calories by lifting weights. And with all of those extra stakes you had on the holiday meals, you might even gain some extra muscle. And this is much better than gaining some extra fat.

                  8. Set Realistic Goals

                  You should set realistic exercise objectives. Aim for at least half an hour per day and you will be very happy when you will achieve that. If you plan one hour or more and not achieve it, you will only end up disappointed.

                  9. Enjoy Yourself

                  Also make sure to set realistic diet plans! Trying to restrain yourself totally from some foods will only make you eat more. Feel free to enjoy the treats that you really love, but in small portions.

                  10. Drink A Lot Of Water

                  This can satiate your appetite as well as keep you hydrated at all times. And it will also prevent a possible hangover if you overdo it with alcohol.

                  11. Eat Less And More Often

                  Distribute your meals evenly throughout the day, and do not eat everything at once.  Instead of having 2 enormous meals, have 5 small ones.  Eat your dinner earlier and have a nice walk before going to bed.

                  12. Prioritize Your Workouts

                  Try to do them early in the morning while everyone else is still sleeping. This way you will also avoid remarks like “Oh, come on! It’s Christmas…”

                  So there you go! Twelve simple tips that will help you avoid gaining weight during the winter holidays, but will also allow you to enjoy yourself and have a great time with your loved ones.

                  Happy Holidays everyone!
