My Beezus and Ramona

This is Beezus and Ramona.
They were born last year.  Their mom's were yearlings who should not have gotten bred.
I became their Mom.  The one with the bottle.  That was like 8 months ago.
They haven't forgotten.
 
 
They still think I am their Mom.  Everyday when I come home from school they are waiting for me.
Perhaps they are suffering from separation anxiety.

 
Beezus. 

 
Ramona.

 
Ramona with a piece of wool in her mouth after she plucked it off of Abby's back because that's what goats like to do to sheep.

 
Beezus drives me crazy.  She makes me laugh.  She follows me everywhere. She has no clue that I am not goat and she is not a human.  All that matters is that she and I are stuck together like glue.

 
I tried for the longest time not to name them.  When I give them a name then it means I end up keeping them. 
 So,  what did I do?
I named them after two of my favorite story book characters growing up.......Beezus and Ramona.
I don't remember how many times I read Beverly Cleary's books when I was in grade school.
But it was a lot of times.
I guess I passed that tradition on to my own "kids".
Sigh......;)

Oh, isn't it nice to be so loved? Perhaps the world would be a much better place if we all had someone to love us like Beezus loves you!

I know it must seem a bit overwhelming at times. . . . . I once had a rescue kitty that overly attached herself to me. She had a meow that mimicked "Ma Ma", and she would follow me around the house all the time, meowing "Ma Ma" over and over! It was both a blessing and a curse some times! ;-) She passed away 6 years ago and I miss her each and every day. Now I'd give anything to hear her "Ma Ma" again!

Best of luck with Beezus!
Warm Regards, Lisa in Oregon

And I have a sheep named Juni B.
Did you have a Ribsy, too?

At least they're GIRLS! Beezus (spell check doesn't like that name) has such beautifully striking markings on her head; I've always wanted a milk goat....

Lisa,
Thank you for stopping by! Whenever I have a rough day at school I know these 2 silly girls are always there to put a smile on my face with their antics:)

Sharrie,
That is too funny! Their "brother" is Henry Higgins...I will have to post do a post on him....he is a character all by his silly self!

Michelle,
You have to get a goat...well you need 2...goats are their own characters...so different than the sheep!
