    I feel ya, kid. She is a cutie!

    And is it just me or does the first picture of Boop kinda look like a miniscule Chihuahua?

    Hope the goats are okay…

    Sorry, people, gonna nuff.
    The puppy isn’t being given to the boy. He’s just holding it. The mom says that maybe she’ll get him a dog. Poor little boy. How could mom be so cruel?

      That’s OK to nuff this one, the video title is indeed misleading, and The Dodo got it wrong as well. There’s no follow-up available that I know of, but I’d like to imagine that the boy got a puppy sometime later and is now very happy.

      I didn’t see cruelty, I read it that mom was doing something fun like hey let’s go see the animals and the boy being so young/tired/hungry didn’t realize he would have such a strong reaction. Seeing this reaction, thinks “Ok, maybe we will get a dog.” It could just be at a place where they “happened” to see a dog they asked to hold. I find it very sweet that the child has such a sensitive heart, and I hope that sweetness is kept. And that is a good indication that if they are able to have a life that supports the proper care of a pet, the animal will be loved and cared for.

        Sorry, HaHa. I meant ‘cruel’ mockingly, tongue in cheek, not ‘cruel’ as in evil.

        I agree. I hope that sweet kid gets a puppy, but if not, he’ll probably grow up to be a wonderful crazy dog guy!

        Yes, ditto.

      I don’t think the kid was crying because he wanted the dog he kept saying she’s so cute not I want her. I think he just got overwhelmed, but I do hope he gets a dog eventually.

    That tiny sugar glider killt me. I would totally knit pouches for them if I could have one.

      Isn’t s/he great? Should hang out with the rescued one-day-old bat from the other day.

      And that dog T-shirt site has dozens (hundreds?) of cool items, from sweet to snarky – passing it on to my dog-loving pals!

    Ohhh, goat story is sad at the end. Too bad–I love a good slow-speed chase.

    That little creature isn’t done yet! Somebody shove it back in a spare hooha or somethin’!

    • Debg July 20, 2016 / 9:42 pm

      It’s a marsupial so it needs a pouch.

      • Faye July 20, 2016 / 10:44 pm

        I know. I meant a spare pouch. But it probably couldn’t latch. 😟

    • TrixAndSam July 21, 2016 / 12:38 am

      My thought too: put the poor bebeh back into a spare hooha or somethings!! She needs more bake time to be finished. Sigh, little morsel just has to thrive. Please powers that be.

    The itty-bitty, tiny-iny earsies! They look so delicate I don’t dare take a nibble.

    That is one rather sassy-looking goat!😄 I hope the perpetrators are caught and punished and that the poisoned goats survive.
    The little boy is obviously going to be a future visitor to this site! That IS an adorable puppy–I love how he keeps licking away the boy’s tears.😊
    That itsy baby is a marsupial I have never even heard of! Such big eyes! The eyes on the adult version are HUGE.
