Pumpkin the Nigerian dwarf goat kid really knows how to appreciate life’s simple pleasures. Watch this baby melt as her “mommy” scratches a special spot on her shoulder.
It’s no wonder Pumpkin and her cute sister Cookie are therapy goats. Watching Pumpkin’s gentle smile and rolling blue eyes is so relaxing, imagine how calming it must be to pet her in person.
Owner Sherri Connell clearly enjoys the therapeutic benefits these baby goats bring. She writes a children’s book series about the duo, called “The Adventures of Pumpkin and Cookie,” and donates proceeds to non-profits that help animal rescues and sanctuaries, and the Invisible Disabilities Association, which helps support individuals living with debilitating illnesses and pain.
I stumbled across Sherri’s YouTube channel recently, and hope it gets more attention. Her little goats love the camera, and are definite viral video material. You can keep up with Pumpkin and Cookie’s antics on their Facebook page.
