was Jackson, Jack-Jack for everyday use. Jack-Jack was a very special
little goat. When I first got him, he was so shy and refused to come anywhere
near me. It took a full year for him to gain my trust and then the two of us
were best of friends.
Jack-Jack was black and white patched and was very cute and fluffy. He never
made any noise, and the only time he talked was when he was lost and it was
TO-DIE-FOR-CUTE! His little voice was so high pitched and quiet I just never
got enough of it! I first thought that he was un-trainable, until I taught
him how to wave. I just waved at him and said, "Hi Jack-Jack!" And he would
lift up his foot and wave at me. He loved to jump around and play and he
loved to eat pickles, Mango, turnips, potatoes, candy oranges and so forth.
He never minded being laid down on my lap or sitting on his rump or carried like a baby.
I loved him so much until one day in the winter I found him stuck between
fences half frozen, barely clinging onto life. There was nothing I could do
and he died in my arms, but not before he twitched his left foot, the same
foot he always used to wave at me. I guess he was saying goodbye... I will
never forget my little baby and I hope he is in greener pastures in heaven!
