When we first got Lexi I put this stuffing-less cow in her cage with her. Ever since she was just a wee little pup when she would get upset she would start to whine, and then put the head of the cow in her mouth and just lay like that. She still does it. It is hard to tell in the picture but she is just laying there with the cow in her mouth because she didn't want to be in her cage. It is so cute.
