Tori Spelling Doing Her Little Turn on the Goat Walk (Yeah)

A few weeks ago on the Goat Berries Facebook page, I posted this photo of Tori Spelling and her son Liam walking their pet goat in Los Angeles and noted that this is *exactly* what I wear when I’m out with the girls. Ahem.

I wasn’t going to even mention Tori and her goat here, but then this morning I saw some more news regarding Tori and Juliet (the goat) attending an event for The Fabulous Beekman Boys.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love that goats are becoming more appreciated because of some high-profile caretakers, but I also hope the romanticism of owning a goat doesn’t become confounded with the hard work it entails and just how much you need to know about these animals to take proper care of them. And by the way, as loyal Goat Berries readers know, you shouldn’t just take *one* in. Goat 101 tells us that goats like to live at least in pairs.

I’m a little afraid that some well-intentioned goat-loving people will see the cuteness (and let’s be honest, the cuteness factor of pygmy goats in particular is off the charts) and step into Easter Chick Syndrome, whereby people gift adorable little chicks to their kids, erm children, but don’t think much beyond what happens when the chick grows beyond fuzzy cuteness — if the chick gets that far, assuming the parents have done research on how to take care of the little one.

Anyway, hopefully my fears are unfounded, but it was just a little something I was thinking about this morning, which in turn reminded me of some photos I took of P walking Pasqualina and our ex-goat Margherita back when they were kids.

I could be biased, but Tori and Juliet have got *nothing* on P and the girls:

Just a boy and his goats

Buon weekend!

P.S. The title is a reference to Right Said Fred’s classic I’m Too Sexy — yes, I know you didn’t miss the reference, but I couldn’t miss the chance to include a link so you, too, could shake your little tush.

    I must agree… P and girls are much better than Tori and her goat.

    Haha, nothing like fishing for compliments, right? 😉

    While I initially thought it was kind of funny that Tori Spelling now has a pet goat, that was immediately replaced with sadness when I realized how terribly lonely that little guy must feel once his people go off to do people things. Can’t you just imagine how the little thing must cry? :-(
    Your photos are, indeed, much sweetie …and much kinder.

    I can only hope that Juliet has bonded with Tori’s other animals so she doesn’t cry…that cry is heartbreaking!

    Poor little goatie, all alone – how sad! Love the photos of P and the girls though! In fact, I was going to ask you if P had any nephews around Sarah’s age, to be pen-pals, of course!, but then again, boys that age probably wouldn’t want to write to a girl anyway. Nieces then? Anyway, hope you, P and the girls are enjoying your spring 😀

    Beth, P does have a niece around Sarah’s age (interestingly, named Sara), but she’s not much into English…hates it in fact. Such a shame! I’ll talk to her though….
