    I have pics of him sleeping in the dog house. He seriously thinks he's one of the dogs...

    Him standing outside.

    Yes that is my huge lab laying there. I had to take the pic through the window, and since it rained they got it dirty. Guess I should wash it.

    It's way cool how all my "pets" get along. At one point we had the goat, two dogs, and one of our outside cats in the doghouse together. My cats are scared of the chickens and ducks right now. One of our kitties is pregnant... again. More babies on the farm!!

    Goats and sheep seem particularly prone to imprinting on other species...mostly dogs and humans. Thankfully it's not a doe-often does that imprint either don't breed or reject babies.

    That's so cute! I've had a few that believed they were dogs, I had one that liked to chase the neighbor's truck, and enjoyed digging holes (actually the dogs dug them, but she liked to think she helped, she'd climb in and scrape around w/ her feet and horns).

    Last year my baby did not believe she belonged w/ the goats, and was completely discusted by the idea. In her case I don't know why, she was raised w/ the goats, but I guess it didn't take, she was fine while I was keeping them all in the yard, but when I moved back w/ mom and they had to go in the goat pen, she just wasn't having any of it, she was a real excape artist, and prefered to spend her time w/ me and/or the dogs. Here she is hanging out w/ her canine family,

    I don't know that I would agree that it causes maternal problems for does, I've never had a problem w/ one being bred or raising their kids. I have a doe that kidded this year, being a FF I really wanted to be there for her, but I missed it! She had both cleaned up and nursing when I found them. She's an excellent mom!
