Cookie Doe, Cookie Doe, What Do You See?


Left to right: Cookie Doe, Clover, Nutmeg.

Cookie Doe, darling, let me answer as to what I see instead. I see a joke you’re playing on me.

I’ve had several questions about Cookie Doe, even if she might be DEAD! She’s not! At least NOT YET! Though considering what a rascal she’s been– It’s the quiet ones, don’t you know.

Oh, that sweet Cookie Doe. Such a dear! So calm and patient and serene, awaiting her precious babes’ births. Oh, sure, she took the extra cookies. The cinnamon buns. THE CAKE.

Members of the jury, I have researched this issue and I present the evidence: Cookie Doe’s arrival at Stringtown Rising Farm and my post the day before, which establishes beyond a reasonable doubt that Cookie Doe came home with me on August 15.

Goats are pregnant for five months. If the dates don’t fit, you must throw a fit!

If Cookie Doe was 4 1/2 months pregnant, she would look like this:
Instead, she looks like this:


She’s just fat. AND NO WONDER.

Clover: “I told you I was the good one.”

    Hopefully Mr. Pibb has solved the problem.

  5. yvonnem says:

    Oh c’mon…she’s got to have at least one in there! Maybe her udder will miraculously swell up within the next few days. They are all such beautiful animals. :yes:

  6. CindyP says:

    NO WAY! And you were so worried during the transition. Isn’t she related to Miss Nutmeg? I’m seeing a family resemblance…..

  7. CindyP says:

    In fact, she may be a little more Rotunda than Rotunda herself!

  8. Anita says:

    OH THANK GOD. Thank you Suzanne, you made my day! Hope you get plenty o’babies by Mr Pibb very soon.

  9. wildcat says:

    What a stinker! She had us all going, waiting to see the babies! LOL

  10. Pat says:

    Has Cookie Doe made out her New Year’s Resolutions List? You didn’t include “diet” on there for her? Or is she billing herself as a Ninja Goat? Glad there was no explosion on her part. Here’s looking to lots of babies in 2012. Happy New Year!

  11. CarrieJ says:

    What??? The travesty!! I think there should be a jury of her peers…why, those extra treats could have been split equally between herself, her sister and her niece. If they only knew….

  12. Canner Joann says:

    Cookie Doe plotted and schemed to get to come home to you, Suzanne! Clover was sending her messages via carrier pigeon telling her what a great life she’d have at your farm. She stole extra food to get her belly nice and plump to full you into thinking she’d pop out 3 or 4 litle ones any day. Ohhhh, what a little trickster!

    Cookie Doe: BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    Give up on the pretest, just call her Cookie Dough!

  14. bonita says:

    Arrggh That should read:
    Give up on the pretext, just call her Cookie Dough.

  15. Miss Judy says:

    Poor misunderstood Cookie Doe. Did you ever ask HER if she was going to have babies? I know several people thought I was pregnant …when I had just eaten too many cinnamon rolls. All they had to do was ask and I told them “NO!!!”…after I had kicked them in the shin!
