The series involves Rookie, a tiny brown dog, and his best buddy in the entire world, a cow. She is, after all, a dairy cow. She’s also his mother, he appears to believe.
This is the kind of story that makes those “unlikely animal friendship” calendars go flying off the shelves.
Kritter Klub’s tearjerking YouTube video depicts the love and heartbreak these two best friends experienced. It received over 2 million views.
The two are similar in [brown] color. He’s very tiny and he would spend all day with his makeshift mother, climbing on her back, playing with her tail and even sleeping on her back. They even share a water bowl. They’re udderly (yes, that was on purpose) inseparable.
A cow immediately took Rookie under her wings, and this was the start of an extraordinary friendship.
Rookie feels safe beneath his cow mom, and he feels lost and scared without her. His worst nightmare came true one day when his cow mom was loaded onto a truck and driven away. The farmer who owned these animals had two cows and intended to sell both as they were the family’s main source of income. Sadly for Rookie – the chosen cow was his mother.
Rookie runs towards his friends, barking for his friend to come back.
The time for Rookie to be separated from his closest companion, he was immediately distraught. he grieving dog was so overcome with emotions, tears even gathered in his eyes and he appeared to cry. You’ve never seen a more heartbreakingly sad expression! Rookie begins to cry. Then he bolts, running down the street after the cow, howling and moaning.
He bounds down the street, with his owner chasing after him, to be reunited at last.
Finally, he reached the cow’s new home – another barn in the village that was close enough to Rookie’s shelter. The pup couldn’t hide his joy when he saw the cow, and he began barking excitedly and jumping to lick the cow’s face. It was an extremely sweet reunion – but it wouldn’t last for long.
When Rookie’s owner found him, he scolded him for running off and carried him home despite the dog’s clear protest.
Then, the pup overheard her moos and picked up her scent, allowing her to be tracked. His owner, who had pursued him, had no choice but to bring him back. The scrappy little dog is having none of it. He wriggles and cries, attempting to return to the cow.
Clearly, this breakup was never meant to be. Not yet, at least. Rookie became antisocial and refused to eat. Without his guardian and companion, he was too distraught.
However, Rookie was even more delighted when the cow appeared at the enclosure’s door. She had returned! He was ecstatic to see her once more.
And the beautiful brown cow returned the love, licking Rookie clean and nuzzling his body to show deep affection for him.
On the other hand, Rookie wandered around the cow’s former enclosure aimlessly, lost his sparky energy and even began refusing food. His owners feared he would waste away.
Eventually they were so touched by his deep connection with the cow they couldn’t bear to keep them apart, the farmer ultimately decided to keep the cow for Rookie’s sake. He bought the cow and reunite the pair once again, despite the financial difficulties it caused.
For the time being, it’s just nice to see Rookie is no longer in pain!
This story is a perfect testament to the fact that animals feel too. Just like humans, they are also capable of loving and feeling pain. Hopefully, this teaches us to be more compassionate towards them and to accord them with the respect and care that they deserve.
