Up until just moments ago, I didn’t know wombats could be so adorable…
But when they’re raised with gentle golden retrievers, I suppose truly anything is possible.
You see, Yhi here is growing up at Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary.
But she’s got a very special guardian who looks after her and makes sure she’s safe.
And it turns out, Yhi just wants to make sure Stella is well-groomed.

Wombat joey Yhi assisting Stella with her grooming …..sort of (watch when Yhi gets her tongue:)). Remember, Stella guards the wombats, that is what she is bred to do so she is with them from a very young age, protecting and looking after them.Posted by Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary on Wednesday, February 24, 2016
I was a little worried when Stella put Yhi’s whole face in her mouth, but it looks like it’s just their adorable way of kissing.
…And now I want a wombat. Who’s up for a trip to Australia?
