What are those things, Mom???

As we were out walking the other night, we heard a very strange sound. Dakota wooed that she had heard it before but didn't know what it was. Phantom thought it was just more noisy bipeds like are at our house during the day.

But I wasn't sure, so I looked at Mom and stared her into crossing this busy street so we could get closer to the sound.

Mom didn't want to go across because of all the cars but we used all our eyes and looked both ways before stepping out there. (We were hoping to see some deer - do woo see that sign?)

Of course, Phantom the Puller got there first. More intense watching!

C'mon, Phanty, move over and make room for us.

"Now, now, let's not be so pushy, everyone spread out," said Mom. "That's much better."

Look, what ARE those?

Look, there's more.

Here's another view.

Well, Mom, what are they? They make a lot of noise and they really stink!!!!

Mom told us that these creatures are miniature donkeys and they live on a piece of property right near us. How could that be? We live in a very peaceful refined area. But she told us they got the city to "grandfather" them so they could still live there. Now, Mom has really confused us, we thought our Dad was a grandfather - words can be so confusing sometimes.

Woo, the OP Pack

You guys are brave to cross that street. Miniature donkeys? Are you sure they aren't mastiffs? They look about my size. Maybe you need a closer look. Did you woo at them?

They make miniature donkeys?!?! Who knew?! I'm going to have to rethink my theory of Dave being a Lab in a Sibe suit. He COULD be one of those mini donkeys. Ha roo roo roo!

Mom is amazed at your mom walking all three of you. She wants to know if she gives lessons.

Hey, we saw those things on TV! They're pretty smart, almost as smart as us sibes. A playdate sounds like fun, but stay clear of their feety-feets!

Donkeys are nice. There are two at the finca over the road from my Spanish house. I go and say hello to them. You can be friends with them, they are cool.

Gucci said...

Aw. Those donkeys are so l'il and cute. I bet they can play a good game of chase!


Lorenza said...

Hi, friends!
My mom says donkeys are funny... but she does not have them here in our neighborhood!
Are they stinky??
Keep an eye on them, ok?
Kisses and hugs

Those are pretty funny looking things. I'm glad you got to go look at them better. You guys were being so good and not scaring them, that might have made the grandfather mad.I wonder why a grandfather wanted those miniature donkys to live there?


The Thundering Herd said...

Ooh, very cool. Natasha is totally enthralled with horses, but her one experience up close convinced her they are too big. Maybe a mini donkey would be more her taste.

D'Azul Siberian said...

Oh that is very cool, mini donkeys and right in the city too. Enjoy while you can.

you got to see some grandfather donkeys? that's so cool. we heard that their poop is really yummy to eat? do you think you could get inside their yard to play with them and eat their poop?


Katie and Gizmo said...

Hi guys, were the donkeys friendly? It'd be fun having them as neighbors if you could play with them.

Love Gizmo

Simcha said...

I wonder what kind of noises they would make if you were inside their pen playing?

Can woo imagine?
