This is another one of those peaceable kingdom photos that teach us that we can have peace if we really want it, and work for it. 

Isaiah 11:6-9 says:

6- And the wolf will dwell with the lamb,
And the leopard will lie down with the kid,
And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
And a little boy will lead them.

7- Also the cow and the bear will graze;
Their young will lie down together;
And the lion will eat straw like the ox.

8- And the nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra,
And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper's den.

9- They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD
As the waters cover the sea.

This dog has most definitely adopted this baby deer as her child, and by her actions, she demonstrates that she is filled with the knowledge of the Lord to a far greater extent than most human beings.  For if, as a society, we did possess this knowledge, we would no longer kill our fellow human beings, nor the animals, nor destroy the environment in which we all live.
