  1. I love Audrey Hepburn! That's very interesting that she had a pet deer. It's kind of like a remake of Mary Had a Lamb, instead it's Audrey had a Deer.

  2. I knew she had a deer-- funny since she is so deer-like herself! But I never saw any pictures of the deer past fawn-stage. Think she had to get rid of it?

  3. This is so great. I love these pictures. Especially the third and the last two.

  4. I've seen a few of these images before. She definitely fits her pet! I wonder if they're a lot of upkeep. Maybe I want one...

  8. She really was sheer perfection.

    I think the deer was from her movie "Green Mansions" wasn't it? And she became so attached to it that she kept it. :)

  12. This is strictly based on hairstyle, but a couple of these photos look like they were taken around the time she did Green Mansions.

  17. I've been obsessed with having a pet deer like Audrey since about age 10.

    Such an amazing woman!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  20. I've never seen this before, so so adorable!!!

  21. I didn't know that! These pictures are so beautiful and delicate - the deer matches her so well. My cousin had a pet deer for a while - a baby her brother found while he was out hunting. I don't know all the hunting rules, but it was actually illegal so they had to hide it. However, it was the sweetest creature I've ever seen (besides maybe the pet raccoon they had once).

  22. Awww I didn't know that, but how fitting!

    ReplyDelete

  29. I had an Audrey Hepburn calendar, and in one of the pictures she posed with her deer. I had no idea it was her pet. He's adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  30. She's so beautiful! I've seen some of those pics before in a calendar of hers. Incredibly unique pet I must say!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I've always though if Audrey were an animal she would be a deer, I mean "doe eyes" with the fine features and light frame? A match made in heaven.

    ReplyDelete

  60. It seems very appropriate that she would have a deer as a pet. She is so wide-eyed and graceful.

    ReplyDelete
  61. These pictures are amazing. I love her and now wish I had a baby dear! :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. once i saw an article about Audrey and Ip, but somehow it just slipped.. im glad you worked that subject, noe it will remain in my mind as a info for wonderful things that i would like to have in my life. a deer... as a pet. how adorable is that? very much!

    ReplyDelete
  63. wow! who can ever imagine! come to think of it, Ip is as elegant as Audrey!

    ReplyDelete
  64. it is amazing how she could tame a deer into being a docile pet - all the ones i have seem are quite the opposite. but i guess when you're audrey hepburn lol......
    love these pics!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Awww, these pics make me feel all warm and fuzzy. And yet so elegant. Love the deer. And I didn't know.....

    ....thanks for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  66. Would not mind one, so cute!

    Beautiful post.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I wonder why it's so small in all the pictures - yes a baby deer might be cute but they're kinda big after growing up... far too big for a shopping trip.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I want a pet deer :( cute picturees!
    xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  69. so adorable!! i wonder how they got the deer so well trained, they are usually terrified even at the sight of a human!!!

    ReplyDelete
  70. These images are so cute ! I love the bambi !

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  80. It seems fitting that woman who owned faun-like beauty had a deer as a pet/companion. The last picture just kills me.

    ReplyDelete
  81. SHE IS MY IDOL! THANKS FOR POSTING THIS! U MADE MY DAY!

  82. I knew she had a deer, but I didn't know it's name was pippin! It's cute.
    I would love the have a deer one day. And a forest as back yard.
    I really love the photos.

    ReplyDelete
  83. WOW! Great pictures! AND awesome little tid bits! Who would have thought a pet deer!

  84. I adore Audrey, but I had not seen these pics before. Great find!

    ReplyDelete
  85. This is so sweet! It totally reminds me of Stylebytes' pig.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I love that her pet was a dear! They say pets look like their owners and Audrey definitely has that doe-like appearance.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I love these photos, but isn't the one where she takes it to the butcher counter odd? Deer are prey animals like cow, that people eat, and she carries it right up to the counter. It makes me feel sad for the deer. And us, too.

    ReplyDelete
  88. @Unknown, I agree that one strikes me as odd too.
