And I thank Jolene for giving me the name!!
I seriously picked a name that would help keep my emotional and physical distance from this puppy, but since everyone and their brother offered other names for me to change it even though I didn't ask (hahaha), I have relented and it is officially changed! It's not like my collie puppies that I spend hours researching names, then writing them down on paper to make sure not only do I like the sound of the name, but also the look. The artist/typographer in me causes this. But seriously, I do appreciate ya'll keeping me on the high road. And I really like the name Alaska.
Here is a short video of Alaska from yesterday. We have a goat pen issue, in that she can get out of part of the pen that's fenced in field fencing and the part that is in chain link, she has an x-pen attached and spends 1/2 her time there. The other half is with the chickens and let me tell you, after I let her out of the goat x-pen this afternoon, she followed me around attached to my heels saying "ILOVEYOU!ILOVEYOU!ILOVEYOU!ILOVEYOU!ILOVEYOU!ILOVEYOU!ILOVEYOU!ILOVEYOU!...Then when I walked inside for a minute she was clamped on the front window with her front paws looking like a monkey peering in for me.
This is not good. So, I put her in the chicken pen for her afternoon chicken bonding and she SCREAMED at the top of her lungs trying to figure out how to get out of that yard. Omg. It was tragic. For like, 45 minutes tragic.
So, seriously this will work. I'm looking at lambs, like 3 to put in with the goats to help her livestock bonding. T really forgets we live on a ranch because he's FREAKING OUT!!! But he'll get over it after he sees how adorable the sheep are.
