A Pet Goat?
You may also notice that there is a car in the background. I don't exactly like showing any indications of nearby humans in my pictures, but I think since this animal is associated so closely with humans that having more evidence like this car is kind of appropriate. Don't you?
This is also my opportunity to tell you something a little strange about myself. While I lived in many types of places when I was a kid, including places in the country, I spent most of my years growing up in the city of Detroit, a pretty big city. And what is the strange part about that? Read on to find out.
The reason we had these farm animals was because we had extra land around our house, and because my dad missed the farm he grew up on. We also had pigs and chickens too, along with a few other animals, but not all necessarily at the same time though. Even though we had a lot of room, we still lived in a city after all.
Some of you have dogs, some have cats, some have horses if you live away from the city. But have any of you had a pet goat in the middle of the city? You may think it's strange or even funny, and that's okay, but it was just the way I grew up. I have to say that I prefer dogs or cats now, but my dad is happy living back on a farm.
Oh, and Tigers. Since I'm from Detroit I like Tigers too, but only the kind that play baseball.
