Ms Fran Meets Bossy Toes

My hands were busy holding Bossy Toes leash and opening gates, doors etc so I didn't take my camera with me on today's adventure. BossyToes is a very sweet pretty little goat. She was raised inside at Rosie's and thinks she is human. It really hurt her feelings when we put her in the pen with the other goats as she thought she should be sitting on the sofa in the living room. I decided to let BossyToes come inside today. She had a time with my hardwood floors but loved sitting on the sofa with me. Since she was so well behaved I decided to take her to visit Fran. Fran absolutely loved her! She kept petting Bossy Toes and fussing at me because Bossy's ears were cold. Bossy Toes seemed to know Ms Fran was a special lady, She stood real still and let Fran pet her, love on her and talk to her. Then she stood beside me for a few minutes till she saw that Fran's bed was empty. She wanted to hop up and lay down . Fran thought it was funny but I thought it was time to bring Bossy Toe's home. She enjoyed her little adventure and seemed content when I put her back in the pen with her goat family. Ms. Fran had me promise to take over a newborn kid for her to see whenever Sammi has hers. She misses sitting on her porch watching the goats. She is still getting cards from everyone and ask me to say thank you and God Bless all of you. She is so thrilled that she is getting cards and such sweet messages. Thanks so much for the thoughts, prayers and cards for a very special lady and friend.

Peggy,

It's nice to hear that Ms. Fran enjoyed the visit from you and Bossy Toes. I'm sure she misses sitting on her porch and watching the goats.

The boys and I missed the farm while we were on vacation. A baby goat was born while we were gone, but unfortunately, it died. Some of the other goats are expecting but not for a while yet.

Enjoyed my visit. Sorry I haven't been around for a while. We had a great Florida vacation.

Blessings,
Mary

Animals are so therapeutic for people! I am so glad you took Bossy Toes to visit.
How exciting to be waiting for the birth of Sammi's babies.

Animals are fabulous healers for us all.
Love you darling friend.
Love and smiles across the miles!

I am glad to read Ms Fran is doing better and in good spirits. I am sure the animals, which respond so unconditionally to affection, will do her good.

One of my nieces and her rather fierce looking Rottweiler have qualified an an "animal therapy" team to visit, the elderly and hospitalized people.

One of my favorite things about your goats are their names. I better not tell my partner that you have inspired me to want goats! Ah well, have to wait until we're full time at the house.

You can bring a goat inside? Wow! I would love to experience that... although... my dog might get jealous because I don't even let HER on the sofa! haha!
