Nothing takes the edge off of a hard day at work faster than the joyful face of your furry BFF. But what happens when the face that greets you at the door isn’t the animal you were expecting? Well, this is what happened for Shaylee Hubbs.

When she entered her house, she was welcomed by this sight:

If you want me to “moove” over, don’t even think about it!

The cow, named Goliath, lives on Shaylee’s family ranch and thinks he is a dog. No … seriously.

Goliath was extremely sick when he was a small calf so Shaylee rescued him and raised him alongside her pet Great Dane. The two became fast friends and now they’re near indistinguishable!

This might seem like a strange situation, but in reality, cows make fantastic companions just like dogs and cats. The only problem is that they are very large and need to eat a lot. But hey, in Shaylee’s case, the same is true for a Great Dane!

Most of us don’t have the space or the know how it takes to keep a cow healthy, so we’ll have to settle for cute videos and pictures on the Internet. Luckily, we have a lot of that here for you cow enthusiasts! Here’s a sweet video of another cow rescue and here’s one featuring a bundle of cow snuggles!

Of course if that isn’t enough, you could visit a sanctuary for rescued farm animals to experience these beautiful creatures firsthand.

Yeah, HE\'s just lying there thinking: "I wish they\'d stop calling me a cow!!!!! Actually, I\'d LIKE a glass of milk."

"Now, let\'s see. Since I think I\'m a dog, what kind of dog should I be????? Hmmmm...A great dane? A spaniel? A chihuahua. Nah, no one want\'s to be a chihuahua. Um...a golden retriever..."

Onegreenplanet doesn\'t give you the WHOLE story. You notice they say he "thinks he\'s a dog" but then they don\'t go any further with their interview of them. They THINK they know exactly what animals are thinking, you see. THEY ARE DELUSIONAL PROPAGANDISTS, somewhat like our dear dictator Herr Orange Combover!

You apparently are such a discriminating reader that you don\'t mind the inaccuracies of this completely useless website which doesn\'t know the difference between a cow and a steer or a bull--and which presents VERY prejudiced "information" (read: "alternative facts") to get you to do what they want (i.e., don\'t eat meat). No one is disputing that the calf is "cute" or "beautiful." But, whatever amuses you...

OneGreenPlanet claims to work for animals, yet not once have they ever mentioned AHIMSA:
"All things breathing, all things existing, all living beings whatever, would not be slain or treated with violence, or insulted, or tortured or driven away. This is the pure unchanging eternal law, which the wise ones who know the world have proclaimed..." Jain Acharanga Sutra

Instead they tell us \'a cow is just as cute as a dog\'... forgetting that 5 million homeless dogs are killed in shelters every year for the crime of existing as an animal according to genesis:

Genesis 9:1-3 "The fear and dread of you shall rest on every animal of the earth, and on every bird of the air, on everything that creeps on the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; into your hand they are delivered. Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; and just as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything."

This is not a cow. It is a calf or a heifer.
