Special Friendship Between a Sick Calf and a Puppy

Special Friendship Between a Sick Calf and a Puppy

There’s something really unique about the surprising friendships that happen between different animals. Even though we’ve heard these stories many times, it always warms our hearts to see animals showing love and looking after each other. So, come along with us today and listen to the story of Sky, a lovely puppy, and Lewis, a calf that was left alone. You’ll quickly realize just how cute these animals are and how strong their amazing connection is.

In 2020, the Gentle Barn, founded by Ellie Laks and Jay Weiner, took in a little calf when he sadly lost his mother. They saved him from a slaughterhouse, where he was left alone at just one week old.

They named him John Lewis Thunderheart because he was strong and determined. When Lewis came to The Gentle Barn, he was not feeling well. “He had severe pneumonia. He had loud, raspy breathing. He had a deep cough. He had an extremely high temperature,” Ellie explained.

Because of the tough circumstances, he was born into, Lewis didn’t get enough of the initial milk called colostrum to build a stronger immune system. As a result, he got pneumonia and had to fight to stay alive throughout his life.

They took him into their air-conditioned house because the shelter’s team realized he couldn’t make it in the barn. Everyone knew that, at that moment, the little one needed a clean and cool place. Plus, this was the way the people at the Gentle Barn could look after him all day and night.

While the young calf was getting better, another animal buddy living in the house turned out to be a big help to Lewis. This friendly dog’s name is Sky, and he was a real blessing.

Sky came to The Gentle Barn because his previous owner couldn’t manage his high energy levels, even though they weren’t originally planning to keep him. Surprisingly, Sky turned out to be an amazing therapy dog. He has a knack for soothing anxious people, bringing smiles to faces, and melting the hearts of those who struggle with anger issues.

That’s why he was the perfect buddy for Lewis during his healing process. “Sky protected him, soothed him, and would lay down right next to him and curl up beside him,” Ellie described. “We just kept pouring love and comfort into him until he slowly began to heal.”

Sky was also around to assist Lewis in getting accustomed to his new life on the farm. Ellie took Lewis for walks and introduced him to the other cows, and Sky was right there with them.

When Lewis arrived, he was only a week old and weighed 50 pounds. Now, he’s two years old and weighs over a thousand pounds. He’s grown much bigger than Sky in terms of size.

Because they know there’s a big difference in their sizes, they don’t play as rough as before. But that doesn’t stop them from showing how much they care for each other.

Sometimes, Sky will come over to Lewis when he’s lying down. Once Lewis is settled, Sky will start licking him. “Watching Lewis and Sky together, there’s so much to be grateful for. What I enjoy the most is that no matter how old or big they get, their love still continues,” Ellie said of their relationship. “To us, we see a dog and a cow. But to John Lewis and Sky, they just see friends, they see family, they see love.”

When we own a pet as a baby we always gush at how adorable and cute they are. We never want them to grow up in fear of them losing their cuteness and their childish, innocent behavior. We never want them to lose that, we want to freeze time so they always stay cute the same way. But unfortunately, it is impossible. They will grow out of their childish innocence and cuteness one day. Luckily for us, they will always be our babies and they will always be beautiful to us no matter what. Fortunately enough, even when they lose the cuteness when they grow up, they become charming and adorable adult animals. Which is just as amazing.

Jazzy Reunites with his Dad After Seven Years and Several States Away

Jazzy Reunites with his Dad After Seven Years and Several States Away

When dog parents lose a pup that’s gone missing for a year or more, they often give up on the search. But sometimes truths prove stranger than fiction, as was the case with Jazzy, recently found abandoned in a hotel room by the Orange County Animal Shelter in Florida.

“She had a bad case of arthritis, but was extremely sweet and gentle and allowed us to care for her as best we could.” The organization said in a Facebook post. “We knew in her condition she’d be hard to find a home for. People line up outside our doors for puppies and small dogs; seniors always get overlooked and ignored.”

However, in Jazzy’s case, she had been microchipped. They located her original owners, a family residing in Texas.

“When we called them, we gave them the surprise of a lifetime. The organization said. “You see, Jazzy was 12 years old, and she had been five when she had gotten spooked by fireworks and run away.”

After years of searching, Jazzy’s owner Kerry hopped on a plane to get his dog back.

“It was a tearful reunion, and it was incredible to watch Jazzy come to life at her owner’s voice,” the organization said. “Kerry was overjoyed and regaled us with stories about her. And Jazzy couldn’t take her eyes off him. She licked his hand and inched her body as close as she could to him.”
