Dogs are amazing creatures who feel many emotions, much like humans. Similarly to humans, they wear their hearts on their sleeves and emotions on their face. Rookie is a dog an expressive dog at the best of times, but what happened at her home left her heartbroken.
Rookie’s mother died when she was giving birth to the puppy. Luckily, a brown cow stepped in to take over the childcare. The cow took the orphaned pup under her wing and the pair lived in a farmer’s barn for two years. They grew closer and closer every day.
Rookie would take shelter under her new mom’s legs, play and cuddle with her, and only spend time with her and nobody else. She wouldn’t even come to her owner!
“If the dog continues to live with the cow like this, Rookie might have a lack of social skills,” a specialist recommended. “Rookie needs to be given the opportunity to make new friends.”
With that in the back of his mind, her owner decided to sell Rookie’s mom to a local farmer as he was struggling with the upkeep of two brown cows. However, Rookie was distraught. She cried and yelped at the barn door, waiting for her mom to come home. Eventually, she ran to try to find her mom, and her owner had to bring her back home.
However, this was enough for her owner to notice the special relationship the pair had, and how heartbroken Rookie was at the situation. So, he brought Rookie’s mom back, and the pair were reunited. Rookie was so happy and excited to see her mom.
But Rookie’s owner was sure to take the specialist’s words on board. Firstly, he has introduced Rookie to new dog friends. He also took time out of his day to bond with her, hopefully increasing her social skills and general happiness.
