We took Willie to the petting zoo at the Safari Park. He didn’t really want to meet the animals up close, which is weird, because he lives with a big dog… bigger than most of those goats… but hey, we all like different things. And the cool thing about taking a kid someplace is that you get to have fun too, right?
So I made friends with some goats. I love goats. They have devil eyes… but sweet devil eyes.
And they always look like they are smiling… sort of like me now that I shaved my mustache off.
That one is looking at me… dreamily… because animals, and babies, love me.
Big Johnny, Willie’s dad, made some new friends too.
Now you may not know this, but, like dogs, a lot of animals have a favorite place that they like to have scratched. If you can find that place, you have made a new friend for life. Guys, there might be a lesson in there someplace…
