B.C.’s Ninny the goat, Kona the dog turn heads while out for daily walks







 

B.C.’s Ninny the goat, Kona the dog turn heads while out for daily walks

Ninny and Kona look forward to four times daily walks together
Every few hours each day, just like clockwork, Ninny the goat and Kona the dog start getting restless and tell Grace Bruinsma in no uncertain terms that it’s time to go for their walk.
The pair have become inseparable and look forward to their walks on a rural Aldergrove street with their companion Grace Bruinsma.
Over recent months they’ve become a bit of a sensation with passing motorists, who often stop and take photos and videos of the trio trotting along 24 Avenue.
Kona the dog is still a youngster and can be a bit of a brat and escape artist, so Grace and husband Andrew keep him on a leash when he’s not in his kennel. Ninny the goat, on the other hand, is eager to follow Kona and Grace and sticks close to them during their walks without any leash or harness to restrain her.
“It started about half a year ago when I took Kona out for his exercise, Ninny started bawling that she wanted to come along with us,” said Grace.
“I thought, why not? She sticks real close to us and listens to me when I tell her to stop and make room for passing cars, and stands on the shoulder or a driveway with us. And if I don’t take her she cries non-stop in her paddock.”
“So many people get a kick out of it,” adds Andrew. “People stop, take photos, and ask Grace if she needs help.”
The couple are hoping that Kona will grow out of his predilection for running away to the neighbours so that he doesn’t have to spend the rest of his life in his kennel. But in the meantime he needs his daily exercise, walking and running alongside Grace and Ninny.
“I usually take them out four times a day for a run and they enjoy it so much that I enjoy it too,” said Grace.
“They know exactly when it’s time for their run and they tell me, loud and clear.”

 Eric, Steve, Dax, Sean and Nate all attract attention when they walk
their dogs. People stare, whisper, laugh, smile and even stop their cars
to take photographs. Why?

Because the men are over six feet tall and their dogs barely reach their
ankles.

Most people assume that the dogs must belong to a girlfriend or a wife —
but these five guys are adamant that they chose (and love!) their dogs.


Through their stories, we come to understand how much these little dogs
mean to these men, and that size really doesn’t matter.

Educate All Children

 
 

Educate  All Children  because they are tomorrow's leaders. Like the Parkland  school group choosing to push back the NRA and having the tools to do so
  


 
No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.



There are so many ways in which we are destroying the planet.  And once we understand, once we care. then we have to do something.
-Jane Goodall 






 








We are all interconnected

Jane Goodall: 'We Don’t Have Unlimited Time' to Save the Planet


Jane Goodall 🇨🇦

“When I began there wasn’t any particular need for conservation the way there is now. If we carry on with business as usual, it will be too late.” - Dr. Jane Goodall

Jane Goodall has been at the forefront of the conservation movement for decades, helping to illuminate human understanding of wildlife and the need to protect it. But never has the challenge been as urgent as now, she told TIME.
