Mow, our beloved goatI farewell you today with a sad story – Mow is dead. Our adorable weed eater – him in charge of keeping our perimeter weed free, was horribly mauled by two dogs. An horrific death, and I must live with the fact that I consigned him his fate when I tethered him. My friend has to live with the fact that she didn’t tie her dogs up. You see these were not uncared for, stray dogs; but family pets – dogs we knew really well. Kind, family dogs; and here’s the reason I share this tragic story – if you own a dog you must tie it up when you aren’t around. Your lovely pooch is a natural born killer. Three beloved pets died that day.

I miss my frisky, smelly, beautiful boy.

Yours in the earth, Kath
