Oh, and she also likes to share her owners? bed at night.
Four-year-old Dillie was abandoned by her mother and weighed just 1.8kg
(4lb) when 48-year-old vet Dr Melanie Butera, from Ohio, rescued her.
Dillie is a very quick learner as Dr Butera and husband Steve discovered.
?This became apparent to us when we came home one day and couldn?t find her
downstairs,? she said. ?We walked upstairs and found her standing on our bed
with our dog.?
Dillie started sharing the Buteras? bed with their dog Lady. ?It was quite a
cute get-together,? said Dr Butera. ?Steve liked the way Dillie warmed his
feet up when she lay on them.?
The deer has the run of their estate but is too domesticated to return to
the wild and wears a GPS collar.
Dillie?s favourite treat is pasta followed by ice cream and coffee, topped
off with frozen ice shavings. ?We just love her to bits,? said Dr Butera.
