About Me

My photo
I am a male yellow Lab. My birth date is September 4th 2011. I am in training to be a guide dog for the blind. (guide dog school -Southeastern Guide Dogs) I'm my raiser's fifth guide dog puppy. She will keep me for (about) 1 year, then I will head off to harness training! Please feel free to follow my blog and keep up with: Brandon's Life... As a guide dog in training

What about her? (we need your help!)

Today, my Raiser brought home this:
Close up of Toby's head - he is looking at a black/white baby goat who is wearing a diaper

You are correct, it's a BABY GOAT. Though we have many goats already (all ages), she thought this one would "look" better in the house... You may think I was upset, but instead I was HAPPY! A friend to play with! (My Raiser diapers the baby goats, and lets them "free roam" the house, which is pawesome news for me - because I get to "puppy" sit them!)

There is only 1 problem - this "her" doesn't have a name. That's where you guys come in. My Raiser picks "themes" to use every year for her baby goats (2009 was spices, 2008 was candy...). She has decided to go with "Soda" brands this year. These are the ideas she has: Sprite, Wink, Sierra Mist & Fresca. (yes there are many more - these are the 4 that best fit this goat).

If you would like to help - pick one of those names (Sprite, Wink, Sierra Mist or Fresca) and leave comment with the name you like best! Thanks!

Enjoy the movie of her "chasing" me :) okay maybe me "chasing" her...

And don't forgot to enter my pawesome giveaway! All you have to do is go to my giveaway post and leave one comment, and you are entered! (please make sure the entry comment is on the giveaway post - not this one!)

I like Sprite! I think that's so cute!

Cassie said...

Awww that video is soooo adorable! I say go with Fresca!

Lola said...

That's hard. Sprite is really a nice name, but being a girl, maybe Fresca would be best. It does sound like an Italian girls' name, doesn't it?

Toby! You are super lucky! I wish I hads my very own baby goat! She is SOOOOO Most Cute!! I thinks she looks like a Sprite to me. But 2nd place would be Wink.

Hope you and your Raiser have a Most Wonderful weekend!

Oh my Pug! She is so adorable! Mom loves goats. How long does she get to run around the house?

Mom thinks she looks peppery. Maybe you guys could name her Pepper. Like Dr. Pepper... just a thought.

What a cute movie! My vote goes to Wink- I think that it is the perfect name for such an adorable goat. You're so lucky to have all those animals! and I love how you choose a theme for the goats' names every year.
