As Dominic’s family was packing up getting ready to return home to Northern Virginia, 4-year-old Dominic was playing outside in the woods. Hearing him wipe his boots on the porch, his mom peeked out to check on him What she saw next took her by surprise. Expecting Dominic to be alone and ready to come inside, instead he was standing on the porch with a baby deer, just as though it was the most natural thing in the world!
“I remember going back into the kitchen and pulling something out of the refrigerator, and I peered around because I heard him wiping his little boots on the rug on one of my trips,” she added. “I was like, ‘OK, he’s about to come in.'” As a result, I turn around and there it is. It’s like he’s a baby deer with him. It wasn’t like it was anything out of the ordinary for him. It was a strange experience.”
Mom promptly got her camera and snapped a photo of the deer and her kid standing on the porch, which she immediately posted to Facebook. Of course, the two friends’ adorable photo instantly went viral. Dominic’s mother instructed her son to return the cute deer to the woods where he found it after snapping the photo. Before going into the forest, he walked back and his new acquaintance eagerly followed.
