It’s like having a very small child – except that the child weighs 40 pounds – is as powerful as a mountain lion - licks me all over constantly – bites me regularly – and howls like a banshee when she cannot see me.
Even when I am with her she sits and looks at me and whimpers. When I ask her what is wrong she pounces on me and starts licking. I am permanently wet. I have ordered a rain Poncho from Amazon.
Of course Cate left town as soon as Georgia arrived. She knows a goat thing when she sees one. I am now getting really useful dog wrangling advice from Geneva.
Make sure she sits when you tell her to (Yeah sure)
Make sure she doesn’t jump (Yeah sure)
She has met the dog next door and they are having a fine time. They run up and down the fence and bark and sniff. They are trying to dig holes under the fence.
She really likes the back garden and the new mulch – and especially Cate’s plants and flowers. She is excellent at spreading mulch and particularly good at moving it from the back garden into the house.
I have told her there is another 10 yards of mulch coming next week and she is very excited about this.
The cats are totally discombobulated. I have managed to get them to come back occasionally into our bedroom but they spend most of their time on the top floor. Monika hides behind the sofa in the top bedroom.
All is going according to plan.
