“Momma, I’m starvin’. Can I have a cookie? I need a cookie, Momma. Please can I have a cookie? Pleeease? I’m so hungry. I need a cookie. I’ll be good if you give me a cookie. Would you give me a cookie, please? I love you Momma, can I have a cookie? I promise I won’t try to boink my brother anymore if you’ll give me a cookie. Just one cookie, please?  Pretty, pleeeasse? I’m starvin’, Momma.”
I had to explain to Bo that while his performance was award winning, his waistline begged to differ.

I am facinated by the shape of the pupil in sheep and goat eyes. It gives them such a "knowing" expression. It's like they are tolerating us as a sub-species or something.

That has to be one of the cutest pictures ever!

How could you possibly refuse that plea? I would break down in a second....

Could you come and talk to my elderly corgi for me? His waist line is on the large size, but his pleading is "Academy Award".

@Robin - not sure the look is "knowing", perhaps "FOOD?!" :-)

I remember our goats would always make me feel so guilty because I couldn't pick them up and cuddle them like I did when they were kids. They were all big babies. Loved the photos of the quilts. Thank you.

Awemygosh is that cute! I would have probably given him a cookie... or two!

How about half a cookie :-) How can you resist that face :-)

There must be a script somewhere. I'm getting the same dialogue from all the ewes....(substitute more grain for cookie)!

Danni said...

So you've got brother-boinking over there, too, huh? :-)
But seriously, you did give him a cookie, right? And, if you did, I'll bet he stuck to his word and was on his very best behavior and certainly didn't ask for another one. heh.
