Watch Out For The Goat!

As promised, I have to tell you all about yesterday.  It started off with lots of fun.  We went to the park to watch JC play soccer and then had a little picnic for his mom (her birthday) and for my mom (Mother's Day).
It was lots of fun.  There were so many interesting things with all those kids and our own grandpeeps giving us lots of attention.  After that we went home for awhile and then we went to dinner at a friend's house.
This is Emma, it was her mom that invited us over with our pawrents.  Emma is beautiful and has a wonderful smile!
This is Scruffy.  He is staying with Emma for awhile until his new house is ready to move into.  It was his 12th birfday!  He is kind of sick so if you cross your paws for him that would be nice.
The thing about Emma's house is that there were lots of new experiences and smells that we NEVER knew before!  First of all we met her cat.  She was a very nice cat and we got along perfectly.  There was another cat but she didn't like me.  I tried to chase her down and tell her I was a fun guy but she kept running . . . so I kept following her . . .
Jayden, a very nice cat.  We are friends.  I hope Jayden tells the other cat I am a nice Doodle.
 So there was Emma, Scruffy, Stanley, and me.  Oh, and other humans that we didn't know before too.  Oh, also there were two other friends.
Jakota and Makana are now our new friends too.
So after we met all these new friends were were just hanging around the yard, minding our own business.  Just sniffing all the new smells.
"Hey Stanley, check out this smell . . . what do you think it is?"

"Not sure Murph, I never smelled it before.  Hey Emma, what is it?"
"Boys, look up and you will see."
"What is that??  Is that a goat?  No, it's two goats!"
"Whatcha think Jayden, should we go say hello to the goats?"
Emma said the goats' names were Tazer and Karbon so we thought we better say hello"
"Hello Karbon, my name is Stanley. Are you a goat? Can I sniff your butt?"
He didn't say anything, something about "Neaahhh" So We just left and went back to sniffing.

Then I heard a funny sound behind me so I turned around REALLY fast.  Have you ever seen a goat up close?  I mean REALLY close?

He had evil in his eyes - YIKES!
And then I heard mom screaming.  Yes, she was screaming, a blood curdling scream that could be heard for miles and miles (we were close to the mountains so it might have echoed).  "Murphy . . . Stanley . . . run for your lives!!!"

I ran like the wind!  If mom thought I was a fast runner before, that was nothing!  I had a goat hot on my tail!
And then he went after Stanley!

 So it turned out that we both got butted.  We didn't get too mad though, we just wondered what the heck they were doing that to us for?  I mean, how rude!  Anyway, after awhile we tried to talk some sense into them and guess what?  We got butted AGAIN!  Then one of them went over to Dad and said something to him.

"Those two Ding-Dongs are getting on my nerves!"

Dad must have said something to the goat cuz the goats said they were sorry.
"Sorry Doods"
After that we figured everything was fine so we went back to checking out all the smells in the yard.  And believe me there were lots of smells that were new to us!

"Watch this . . . gonna give 'em one for the road . . . Neaahhh"!

And he did . . .



  1. Now that is an experience I have never had. Butt by a goat. Hahhaha. Sorry to laugh. Ask your parents about my llama experience, then you can laugh at me.

  2. OMCs Murphy and Stanley you met a goat in the furs!?!! and a cat? Holey moley what a fun fun day.
    I'm so sorry the 2nd cat ran but well that is just what they do...I should know FYI: I am a cat in case you didn't know. MOL

    A goat...oh my stars I'm about to explode with happys for you
    Hugs madi your BFFF and Happy Mom's Day to your Mom

  3. WE have our paws crossed fur the Birfday Boy.. hope he gets into his new home soon.
    Now we have learned that SOME cats Love us and SOME cats Don't. So we think that was what you found out too.

    Now about those Goats... We DID warn you about the Butting Heads thingy. Too bad you didn't even get ONE butt sniff.

    We expect that you doods are Worn OUT after that Big Wonderful Day.

  4. Happy Mom's Day to your Mommy!!
    Great Post. Love the goats.

    Love .... Mona & Weenie

  5. You were very brave to stay in the yard with that butting goat! Sheesh, how rude. You just wanted to say hello. Well, we're not going NEAR any goats.

    We always chase cats to say hello, but the run...can't figure it out.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella &Roxy

  6. Happy Mother's Day to your mom. I thought this might happen and I'm glad you weren't scared. Hope you had a wonderful day today!

  7. What an amazing day you guys!! Full of so much and then to top if off with butting goats ~~~ ouchie!!

    Now you know to keep your distance. I will too!!


  8. You got butted by a goat and lived to tell the tale!!! What an awesome adventure. Your new friends are really cool and I bet you got to sniff a whole lotta new stuff!

  9. Looks like you had you a great old time. One thing you need to know about goats, they do have a strange sense of humor. If they don't get to butt you, they will definitely try to eat your hat (well, if you are a human that is) or anything else you may have with you.

  10. That sounded like a fun and a little bit scary adventure. Happy Mother's Day to your mom.

    Millie & Walter

  11. Whoa!!! Now that was an awesome story and experience, what a night! :-D I can't believe that you got butted by the goat...hehehehe! Your new friends look totally cool, great job with the kitties, we'll cross our paws for Scruffy too!

  12. Woof! Woof! Oh they are cute. I've seen many goats in HI. Did you see when I shared the 2 goats on a log. You guys sure had a great time. Hope you guys had a wonderful Mother's Day. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  13. Excellent adventure, doods! So many new friends all in one spot. Bet you're hoping to get invited back!

  14. So what does a goat butt smell like anyhow?

  19. Haha, you got butted! Oh no! Hope it didn't hurt too bad. Looks like you guys did awesome meeting all those new furry furiends--cats, dogs, and goats! Riley would've chased all of them.

    Elyse and Riley

  20. Goodness, darlings! Such rude manners from those goats. We crabby girls find them very intriguing, but butting is definitely not sociable behavior at all. Your other friends are lovely and it seems everyone was having fun except for the neaaaaaaah goats. A course in social etiquette seems in order for them. Neaaaaah indeed.

  21. LOL and BOL

    We are glad you got meet so many new friends and sniff so many smells, that is what weekends are for.
    Hugs and sniffs,

  24. This is the BEST post! We totally enjoyed it and it made our mama laugh out loud!! The goat story is very funny!! She used to have a goat that lived next door and he grew to be HUGE and would come over and take stuff out of the garage and EAT it!! Can you imagine?? We have met a cat before, but we have not yet met a goat! We will have to look for one...but we definitely would have run as fast as the wind...just like you did!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug
