Donkey falls completely in love with baby goat friend

Violet is a four week old Lamanche goat. They are a unique breed with short ears and long legs. She is treated more like a pet and she probably believes she is actually a dog. She follows Alana around on the farm, enjoying the grass and grazing as she trots behind, always keeping up. She also loves to explore and today she is about to meet the farm donkeys for the very first time. They spend their summer days on a pasture that lies over a hill and farther from the house and barn than Violet has yet ventured. Violet is excited to see that there is a new world on the other side of the hill and she excitedly greets the new creatures there without much fear. But Monty is a very friendly and excited donkey and he rushes up to Violet for a good sniff. His size is intimidating and Violet decides that she is not quite ready for a new friend who is so much larger than she is. She runs around behind Alana and takes cover. Alana picked Violet up and chuckled at the way this was going. After the two had a sniff of each other, Alana decided to end their first meeting on a happy note and make more progress another day soon. But Monty wasn't ready to say goodbye and he began trying to get his face as close to Violet's as he could.

Greedy beagle caught on camera squeezing through cat door

Buddha is a lovable little dog with one serious flaw. His stomach is much larger than his brain and it dictates what he does more often than not. When the cat door was cut out, the opening was carefully planned to be too small for him to squeeze his belly through. But Buddha's family had recently put him on an exercise plan that involved nightly walks and limited food portions. It was working well because Buddha's round figure became much more athletic. His waistline was shrinking and he was more energetic. He was showing all the signs of a reformed food addict having found a new level of health. But his progress mysteriously stopped and he hit a plateau. Something was obviously going on when the family cat started losing weight and asking for more food. Her food bowl was always empty, even though she was perpetually hungry. Buddha's family decided to mount a few cameras to see what was happening. They put the cat's food out and closed the door. Predictably, Buddha watched all of this with great interest. Then they turned on the television and settled down in the other room. Buddha joined them and lay on the floor as if he was going to have a little nap. Engrossed in the TV show, they didn't see him quietly sneak out. It wasn't until he was spotted returning to the family room that they realized he was missing. Suspiciously, he was licking his lips and wagging his tail, obviously delighted to have made another successful raid. Sure enough, the cat food dish had been emptied and licked completely clean. Only the beagle could have eaten so much, so fast. When they looked at the footage, it all came together. Unbelievably, he had slimmed down enough to squeeze his still ample frame through the hole in the door. Even though he was the only suspect and it was what they had guessed, it was still a huge surprise to see him actually pull off the crime and make his escape. It was such a tight fit that he obviously had a harder time getting out than he did getting in. Buddha's crime spree was over and the family installed a little trim around the hole to close it off just enough to keep him out. Buddha is persistent and optimistic though, and he continued to try to get through the door in the same way for many nights after. With a little luck, he'll figure out that the cat door is not a lot smaller and some extra effort on the weight loss plan will reward him with a figure that will once again enable him to get through so he can reach that delicious cat food.
