    Saw the first pic. Misunderstood meaning of ‘sauce’, assumed gosling tippled. Go, goose (hic) go!
    Whole new meaning behind ‘got goosed’.

      Uncle Waldo: Duck a la Provincal, stuffed with chesnuts and basted in white wine. Being British, I would’ve preferred sherry.
      Tom O’Malley: Basted? He’s been marinated in it!

    OMG, the story about the sheep is so wonderful. There’s a picture of little Henry baaing, people!

      That’s at Edgar’s Mission – I might’ve known. They are awesome! What a precious little sheepie.

    I love that the goose is somewhat hostile to women his companion is interested in and not so hostile to women he’s not that interested in. Being read by a goose – takes humans down a peg, don’t you think?

      I like the goose’s threat-assessment capabilities.

      I love the way they captioned one of the pix: “Mike Jivanjee (right)…and Kyle the goose (left)” – just in case we couldn’t tell who’s who 😀

    I love that Edgar’s Mission has giant stuffed animals to keep their residents company.

    Good heavens, that dog outweighs me by more than twice my weight! I think I really COULD ride him!

      I’m trying to imagining him in an rest home or pediatrics ward. One wrong turn of the torso and somebody’s going to be thrown to the floor.

      Hopefully the therapy training will help prevent that.

    Sheep: They knew eachother right away. Amazing.

    Goose. His goose keeps him on a short leash!

    I love the little goose and her jealousy, love the reuniting of the sheep . The dominoes, while amazing in every regard, for some reason puts me in mind of the downfall of civilization. I want my Mommy ( is she a sheep???)

    • Faye September 15, 2016 / 7:04 am

      Oh my. Murray. It’s ok. Really it’s just dominos. Civilian may be crumbling around us. But at least we can enjoy a good domino fall before the end comes.

      Wait. Now I need my mommy. *Reaches for comforting transitional object*

    The goose’s Instagram is really funny. It’s juvenile, but really funny. @kylethegoose

    Spotted an error in the goose article and felt like letting my pedantic flag fly: it’s a “Canada Goose” not a “Canadian Goose”.

    Canadian bacon, fine.
    Canadian whisky, fine.
    Canadian goose, NERPE.
