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.

                  1. Visit a suburb in your city that you’ve never been to before, or somewhere you haven’t explored much.
                  2. Learn ten phrases in a new language–what about Japanese, Italian or Portuguese?
                  3. Listen to a genre of music you haven’t tried before–perhaps Jazz, Punk or Blues?
                  4. Have a picnic in your local park complete with a packed lunch and your animal friends.
                  5. Start a daily journal to write your thoughts in.
                  6. Try a new cuisine–what about French, Lebanese or Korean?
                  7. Visit your local library and borrow some books for the weekend.
                  8. Plant some flowers in your garden. If you don’t have one, try an indoor potted plant.
                  9. Visit a local museum or art gallery and view their latest exhibition.
                  10. Learn a new skill–what about sewing, gardening or cooking? You’ll be surprised what you can learn in an afternoon.
                  11. Say hello to a neighbor you don’t usually talk to.
                  12. Make a card for a friend and send it to them with a handwritten note.
                  13. Learn how to cook a new dish for dinner. We all get tired of eating the same thing, why not try making something new?
                  14. Re-read an old favorite book. Don’t leave it gathering dust on your book shelf; get it out and read it all over again.
                  15. Research the culture of a different country online–what about India, Guatemala or Sweden?
                  16. Go for a walk or bicycle ride around your neighborhood.
                  17. Watch a classic film like Casablanca, The Godfather or The Wizard of Oz.
                  18. Make a photo album of a recent holiday you took. Don’t let your memories get lost on your computer hard drive; make a special keepsake album of your trip.
                  19. Visit your local farmers markets and pick out some fresh produce. Farmers markets are full of delicious fresh fruit, veggies and more. Find your local market and take a visit.
                  20. Plan a day trip to somewhere outside your city–it might be the seaside, mountains or another city!

                  22. Make a birthday present for a friend. Handmade gifts are personal and much more special than anything you could buy from a store.

                  24. Volunteer with your local nature conservation society to plant some trees. Conservation societies are always looking for helping hands; do your bit and plant some trees.

                  28. Invite some friends over for a BBQ. There’s nothing better than an afternoon spent with good friends and good food.
                  29. Try out a new form of exercise like Pilates, tennis or swimming.
