Peter Cason and his wife were walking their spaniel Bailey in the grounds of Felbrigg Hall on April 21, when they spotted a lamb approaching them.

The couple, who live in East Dereham, assumed the little creature was looking for its mother and seeing Bailey thought it had found her.

Mr Cason said: “Whilst walking our spaniel Bailey in Felbrigg Hall grounds last Saturday, we suddenly heard and saw a lamb running towards us.

“We assumed it was looking for its mother and seeing Bailey thought it had found her.”

He added: “Bailey’s reaction was similar to that when he meets another dog, he greeted it by sniffing.”

Mr Cason captured several adorable photos of the pair encountering one another.
