It’s not uncommon for children to do the same things they see their parent’s do and apparently that trait is also found in the animal kingdom.
It happens even when it’s unintentional.
Jemma MacKenzie posted this video showing her orphaned lamb named “pet.”
The lamb was brought up with four Collies and thinks she is a dog with the oldest pup being her mother.
She runs and hops around with the other dogs and has since she was young.
