Do ordinary cows like being scratched under the chin? I have no idea.
Meet Milkshake. She's a cow. But she thinks she's a dog. It's pretty cute.
Milkshake was rescued from an animal hoarder, where she was kept isolated in a 10' by 10' pen from the age of two weeks. Without any cows to model herself after, Milkshake looked to her rescuer's dog as a role-model.
Milkshake was rescued by Beth DiCaprio of the Grace Foundation of Northern California. Beth has a terrier mix named Riley, who is now Milkshake's best friend. Today, Milkshake will only eat dog food, loves going for jogs, and gets excited when Beth comes home from work.
At this point, the only thing cow-like about her is her name. And, y'know, that she's a cow.
