Okay, confession time. I am OBSESSED with cows. If you think that’s weird, just wait — you haven’t met Moonpie the miniature rescue cow yet!
Most people who live in the country drive by cows without a second thought, but I’ve always been drawn to their dopey eyes and peaceful nature. In fact, I’ve been known to pull over on the side of the road just to get a closer look at a cow and try to pet it. Honestly, the majority don’t like that too much, but Moonpie? She truly is one in a million.
I’m going to introduce you to Moonpie, but you have to keep a secret. You see, this adorable little nugget has no idea that she’s a cow. As far as she’s concerned, she’s 100 percent pure dog.
Moonpie was adopted by Rocky Ridge Refuge in Arkansas after a friend of the organization spotted her at an auction house. Because she was too small to leave outside with the other cows, founder Janice Wolf allowed her to sleep inside with her 12 dogs.
Before long, Moonpie was convinced that she was just another canine! While she gets along well with all the dogs, her best friend is a deaf bull terrier named Spackle. Over time, the duo became inseparable.
She even helps Spackle take care of her pup, Cadburry!
“Wanna help me chew me my bone, Auntie Moonpie?”
Janice said, “The dogs are her surrogate moms. They clean her face the way a mother would. They love to do that…They were all thrilled to see her.”
But it’s not just the dogs who love Moonpie. She’s also good friends with the resident capybara, Cheesecake.
And Cheesecake is best friends with a chicken! Seriously, is this place heaven on earth or what?
I would love to spend a day with Spackle and Moonpie guarding the house…
…visiting Barcode the zebra…
…or just lounging around with Cadburry! Talk about the life.
Until then, keep on being adorable, Spackle and Moonpie. And don’t worry — if anyone asks, we’re totally okay with telling them you’re a dog!
