Pet of the week: The enthusiastic goat
Now here is a thing of which our family boasts;
That we now own the liveliest of goats.
When she’s feeling sprite and in need of fun,
She jumps to her feet and the show has begun!
With a flip to the left and a hop to the right;
A rear straight up then all four in flight.
Again she does it without hesitation,
To gain elevation and try aviation.
In this – of course – she doesn’t succeed;
So she makes up for that with overall speed.
Speed – I’ll say – she has quite a lot,
If you take her away from her food holding spot…
…On the return…you’re fast to learn…
WOE to the person holding that rope
On the end of which is a stampeding goat!
Here’s the conclusion I’m trying to give;
We have the most athletic goat that ever did live!
