Your morning adorable: Dog + deer = BFF

July 21, 2010 | 12:02 pm

We're amazed -- and we suspect you will be too -- by the sweet friendship between YouTube user isolbelspringett's Great Dane, Kate, and a doe named Pip.

Pip's mother deserted her when she was just a fawn, leaving her alone in isobelspringett's neck of the woods. "We waited 3 days before we rescued her," isobelspringett says. "We couldn't stand the crying anymore! Kate adopted her right away and they've been best friends ever since." Kate -- who's never had puppies of her own and is spayed -- even tried to nurse the fawn!

Nowadays, "Pip [lives] in the woods with the other deer. She just visits every day," isolbelspringett explains. When she does, she enjoys a good romp with her best friend -- and surrogate mother -- Kate.

Isobelspringett has documented the lives of these two friends and some of the other animals they live with on her YouTube channel -- if you're as moved by these two as we are, it's well worth a look!
