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.

                  8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                  8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                  We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                  On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                  Advertising

                  Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                  1. Smart Door Locks

                  A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                  2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                  Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                  3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                  If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                  4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                  These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                  5. Nest Thermostat

                  This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                  6. Smart Lighting

                  Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                  7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                  Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                  8. Canary

                  This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
