The Dolly Doodle Report

Dolly Doodle here with an urgent cry for help!



I think something is wrong with my mom...her mind must be slipping or something because she keeps forgetting my bottle!


I diligently stand on my favorite stump and maaa as loud and long as I possibly can at the house to tell her she has forgotten to feed me my bottle but I guess she can't here me in there!



My Auntie Nibbles tells me I am on weaning and that The Mom will no longer be bringing me a nice, warm, milk filled bottle any more! I told Auntie Nibbles that weaning sounded like a horrible thing and I was far to cute for The Mom not to bring me a bottle and I might die of hunger! Auntie Nibbles assured me I would not die and that all goaties have to go through weaning...Well! I am not all goaties,I am the one and only Dolly Doodle for Pete's sake!

I mean eating hay and grain is OK to pass the time between bottles but who would want to do that all the time...not me I tell you!



When The Mom finally heard my  weak cries of total starvation she came out to the goat pen...but she forgot my bottle again! I practically had to drag my  poor, starving, wasted away to nothing, but still very cute mind you, goatie self over to her! I began frantically  checking  to see if she may have stuck my fix...er..umm...I mean bottle in her pocket and forgot...


I even checked her fingers! Hey...don't judge me! You don't know how horrible and desperate this weening can make a poor starving goatie! Besides... ..humans may just have milk in their fingers...how would I know I don't have fingers...





She just scratched me under my chin and told me I would have to learn to eat like a big goat if I was all that hungry!





Fine I will eat ...but I will be thinking of bottles the whole time I am gobbling down these yummy baby alfalfa pellets....


Any chance I might get a bottle to wash these down with?

How sweet! Is that the little one you got from Texan? She's grown a lot! And I'm amazed that she's got little horns already! What a cutie! I would have probably given in...

Oh, poor Dolly Doodle, life is rough. I can almost hear you crying from here! I guess your bottle days are over. :(

Millie said...

Poor baby, Dolly. Everybody has to be weaned. It's sad but true.

They are something when they wean, aren't they.

Brenda said...

Growing up is tough.... and weaning is really tough! Dollie Doodle is a very pretty little girl. I'm sure she'll get through weaning just fine.

Texan said...

Poor Dolly Doodle. I think I know how she feels when I gave up Coke. I still think about it with great fondness. Sigh.

Doc said...

Dolly Doodle is just so cute. I'm sure I would have turned into a puddle of weakness and given her the bottle

Jim said...

This is the cutest post Melodie! You really know your critters. And poor, poor starving Dolly! How COULD you be so mean! lol

Nekkid Chicken said...

I am just cracking up. Ms. Doodle mind your Ps and Qs missy. Soon you will be chased about by a mean ole 'male-fumed' buck sniffing ur hind parts. To me that is worse than no bottle. LOL

Lin said...

I'd sneak you a bottle if I could, goat pally! Poor thing. Being grown up is hard. :(

Sandra said...

I keep expecting to see Babe the pig appear out of nowhere when I look at your pics!
I have to say, I never thought I would sit and stare happily at goats.

Poor baby--I know I had to break my piggy last year from the bottle and it was worse than a baby human for sure. Poor little thing :)

John Gray said...

you poor rotten thing you.
The Moms all unite and do their evil weaning deed. It's the way of the farm.
