Lizzie is my little goat with the lopsided ears.
When I first heard about Lizzie, the lady told me that she thought she’d end up having to keep Lizzie because she had this lopsided ear issue. One ear is shorter than the other. Of course, then I said, “I’ll take her!”
Because I’m weird like that.
I’ve been working on making friends with the girls.
The girls, running for cookies when they see me.
So far, Jane and Kitty are pretty good at taking cookies from my hand. But Lizzie–oh, Lizzie. She sucks on my fingers at any opportunity, perhaps hoping to find a crumb still on them.
She follows me around.
She comes in the house.
She tries to climb in my lap.
I actually thought about taking her to the library with me the other day because I thought she might behave better than Maia. But that would have really created a kafluffle. Maia is already getting upset.
Sometimes Maia gets jealous and head-butts Lizzie. I keep telling her that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
And Lizzie is doing a great Maia Mini Me!
I’m so glad I took home the lopsided goat. It is often true in life that the thing that is not quite perfect is the best of all.
