Just in case you’re tired of bad news, dire warnings, and thinking that the world is falling apart… here’s a little post to remind you there’s still happiness in the world. 🙂 In this case, it comes in the form of my little sister and her absolutely adorable new pet.
Carmen just bought a baby dwarf goat (so she’s extra tiny), named her Nellie, and HELP. THE CUTENESS OVERLOAD IS REAL. I will say that I normally don’t care for goats, but I’m not sure it’s possible to dislike Nellie. She’s the friendliest, sweetest goat I have ever encountered – she’s basically a dog or a cat – and… well, the pictures will have to do the rest. 😉
Ready for a smile?
Now presenting… Nellie the Adorable!
AHHH. She’s so tiny – just about the size of a small dog – and what makes that even better is she seems to think she IS a dog, or maybe a little person. Certainly not a goat. 😛
However, dogs don’t eat leaves and goats do, so… heh.
Seriously, though, she is SO sweet and affectionate! She’s quite happy and content when she’s with people, and starts bleating sadly when you put her back in her pen and desert her.
We can let her out and even take her on walks with no harness or anything – she obediently trots after you and starts racing toward you in panic if you get too far ahead. :’D
At first Maggie (our dog) chased her around, but eventually, and somewhat miraculously, we managed to get them used to each other so now they can both be outside with us! Although sometimes Maggie gets jealous of our attention and inserts herself into the situation. XD XD She decided Carmen was playing with Nellie too much and decided to come over and photobomb for a minute.
Those tiny horns, though…
HAHA, Carmen’s smiling up at her adoringly and Nellie looks so smug here, like, “I know, I know.”
It’s pretty funny when you run away from Nellie because she’ll take off after you and Maggie, not to be outdone, takes off after HER, resulting in an amusing scene something like this…
Carmen, needless to say, is over the moon. She would probably sleep with her if she could, but Mom has drawn the line at letting Nellie in the house for short periods. 😛
EEP I LOVE THIS PICTURE. SO FUZZY.
She has those rectangular goat pupils I usually find creepy, but the rest of her makes up for them. 😛
She’s not afraid to ask for attention. I was laying down in the field while taking photos and she just hopped on top of me. :’D
You do have to be careful, though, because she seems to find clothes and fabric quite tasty…
HAHA, this picture! Carmen carried her this way until Nellie wiggled around and righted herself.
OH MY. Is this photo disturbing to you too? O.o SHE LOOKS LIKE AN ALIEN. :’D
Ahem. I think I’ll end on a cuter photo. I loveeee this one. It pretty much sums up Carmen and Nellie together. 🙂 ❤
Welp, there you go, my friends. You’re welcome for filling your cuteness-meter for the day! I’m sure Nellie will be appearing in more blog posts in the future, so drop a comment if you have an idea for what kinds of posts or photoshoots I should do with her! And… that’s all for today. Just remember that the world is still beautiful and our good God is still in control. ❤ Feel free to chat below and tell me your thoughts!
Is Nellie adorable or is she adorable? Which photo was your favorite? What is your opinion on goats? 😛
Thanks so much for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!
