This past Tuesday we celebrated Soldier Joe’s 17th birthday. We read a very cute story entitled Little Donkey and the Birthday Present. Ever buy a present that you just didn’t want to give away? Well, little Donkey becomes very attached to his present for his friend. It was a perfect story for a donkey theme and a birthday celebration.
Joe was in such a happy birthday mood that we even were able to pat his fuzzy little head. Donkey’s are helpful little animals to have around. We call them pasture protectors. They are very observant and will be boisterous when something is not right on the farm.
