Today In Squee: This Adorable Dalmatian Lamb

Rough week? It is nothing that a spotted baby lamb with an adopted dalmatian mommy can't fix. And you get your mind out of the gutter, young lady — she is the cross between "a pure-bred white Dorper ram and a Doper and Van Rooy ewe." Whatever that means, it is too cute for words.
