Daisy's Unlikely Friendship With Izak The Goat

 

Would you believe that my mom asked this man (Bill Higgins) to hold my leash for a few seconds so she could photograph me with his strange looking creature? Yup, she sure did and do you wanna know why? Because she thought I had finally become friends with the most famous pet in town, Izak, and she had to tell all of her blogger buds all about it. The embarrassment of it all, I tell you! 

So here's me looking away from Izak while my mom giggled about how cute it is that I finally have a goat as a friend! 

Am I the only one standing here who can't see that I am looking A-W-A-Y from Izak and not AT him? Come on, my mom has lived with me for 4 years and she can't understand I like dogs way better than goats?

In my opinion, goats do strange things like:


stand on park benches,

  
                                                                   eat leaves,


and rams dogs and humans with those strong horns at a moment's notice!

 Because my mom says it's good to make friends with people (and animals) from all walks of life I will try to be brave the next time I see Izak but no pictures, please!
                                                                
P.S. My mom wants everyone to know that Izak lives in an apartment two streets away from us! Get a tour of his home by clicking here! You won't believe your eyes!

  1. Hummm I don't know about those goats. I have not met one nice one yet. Recently my MOM officiated a wedding and at the wedding dinner they served goat. She said it did not taste very good. so I guess they are bad inside and out.

  2. I must admit (but don't tell my mom I said so) that Izak can be a bit rude (see picture above of Izak getting ready to ram me with his horns) but maybe goats are just rude sometimes because they wish they were dogs. Maybe, just maybe?
    My mom would never eat goat but if your mom says it tastes awful then she'll believe you! BOL
    XOXO,
    Daisy

  3. We have been butted in the butt by one of those evil two horned things. They pretend to be nice and then pow. Taste awful too.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Do you think your mom is pushing the envelope on this one...being friends with him and everything..i mean we do need to get along with everyone but couldn't you get along from across the street far far away from his horns...
    Mom and Dad spent Easter with some greek friends and they had cooked goat in a hole in the yard..mom said it was not good at all...
    Stay Safe buddy

  5. Hi Stella and Molly!
    It's me, Daisy, and I gotta say that I hope my mom read your comments and took NOTICE! My mom always tries to see the good in everyone (even goats, one of her favorites) but I think she did cross the line with Izak. I'll be friends with him to make my mom happy but I'll stay across the street next time, fur sure!
    XOXO,
    Daisy

  7. We have two goats in the family. The girl goat is really nice and I like her but the boy, well you just always have to keep an eye on him. He has been meaner since he got hit by a car last year. It broke his jaw and he had to wear the collar of shame for a month. I thought it was pretty funny, that is until the collar came off and then I became the "Butt" of his jokes.

    Love

  19. So glad everyone enjoyed reading about Daisy's budding friendship with Izak! It certainly isn't everyday that one meets a goat in the middle of the city but we managed to find him and are so glad to tell you all about him!
