Been thinking a lot about animals lately...what their lives are like, what part I want them to play (or not play rather) in my everyday diet, but this post is more about my complete and utter pipe dream of raising a couple of little goats in my backyard. Let's just ignore for a moment the fact that although I eat up the stories about Brownie and friends at Over Good Ground, I know absolutely nothing about raising farm animals. I'm also pretty sure my dream wouldn't fly with the rather rigid HOA in my subdivision. But how adorable would it be to have a little boy and girl, maybe Pygmies or Nigerian Dwarfs, and name them Romeo and Juliet and let them live happily ever after being spoiled rotten by my family and me? Very adorable, that's how.
