Polka went to Paris
|Polka Spot was figuratively and literally above the goats she surveyed|
She could not have lived a more glamorous life and I'm sure she felt the love from the people even if she wasn't quite a people person herself. I remember when she came into the barn, several people going to the fence to snap pics and fawning over her. She was having none of it. She kept her distance but didn't mind the attention. I was so sad to hear this news but so glad that we went for that long weekend last year so it wasn't an opportunity missed.
The Beekman site has been flooded with people sharing their own stories of meeting her and just a general outpouring of love. In these times where so much violence and stupidity are highlighted and thrust in our faces, it's nice to see that one animal is mourned for just unapologetically being themselves. We could all take a lesson from that.
Have fun in Paris, Polka...you'll be missed back home.
Has a non-traditional animal made an impact in your life?
