Herbie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Herbie
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Domestic Goose
Home: Adams, Wisconsin, USA
   Herbie is a domesticated goose (though he's a male so he's technically a gander) who was given to my husband as a gift from a friend. He was only one day old, just hatched and was a little yellow ball of fluff. It was an education watching him transform to the handsome guy he is today. He is such a good bird and is really a lot of fun to watch. He loves to take a daily bath in his pool and play with his rubber ducks - you can see them on the other side of the pool. He has also learned how to bark from his (canine) brother and sister Claude and Hailey. When someone comes to the door he joins right in with the barking to welcome them. His favorite treat are pretzels, he loves to sit on my husband's lap and gives him a kiss for every pretzel he eats. I never thought we would ever have a pet goose, but now I can't imagine life without him. He makes our lives more enjoyable every day.
