Daisy’s Etiquette Lesson: How to Treat Friends

Filed under Pet Talk

If you are friends with Harley, you already know that his dream is to raise goats.  Okay, don’t tell him he is not likely to ever realize his dream. It’s good to have a goal, right? Anyway, Harley is very lucky because he actually has some very kind goat friends.


One of his best goat friends is Pricilla.  Isn’t she pretty? I’m also friends with Pricilla, as well as my goat friends Bob and Patrick. Goats are cool!


Anyway, Pricilla sent Harley a little goat of his very own! And it looks just like Pricilla.  This is good, because Harley can start honing his goat skills. Unfortunately, he is not exactly sure what to do. Luckily, I am an expert so today I will teach you how to treat a friend.


First, it is nice to give a gentle pat just like this.  Most cats, dogs and goats enjoy pettings.  You can also give your friend some nice treats and because sharing is good, help yourself to some treats, too!


It is acceptable to play with your friend’s tail, but…


… it is best not to sniff your friend’s behind (unless you can do it subtly so that no one notices).


When you give your friend pets, do not be too rough.  If your friend’s feet leave the ground, it is a sign that you are petting too hard.


And my last bit of advice is that you must be sincere. If you are only being nice to your friend so you don’t get in trouble, it is no good.


How do you treat your friends?

    Awww Daisy, you are the cutest!
    I would say I sometimes use cuddles and the power of the purr too.

    Daisy you are so very right. I really do not like to have my tail sniffed – well except by Luke the goat but I should not talk about that on a family blog.

    Thank you for this very excellent post on how to treat your friends.

    Oh, that is such a cool mini-goat friend! I love Pricilla–she is such a nice goat! And she makes marvelous goat soap—that does not smell like goat butt. ;)

    I like this post and it is good to know that no goats were harmed in this posting.

    Pricilla is a very nice goat! I think that’s why Harley wants to raise goats… because they are nice!

    Harley was hardly even paying attention, so he might not have learned much…

    Oh Daisy, that is all such good advice. Goats are lots of fun. We used to have some and we miss them now but they did butt us kitties. That is great advice for sure. We love your little goat Harley.

    Well I think Smoke and Joe the donkeys are pretty cool!

    Daisy, that was great advice for Harley and everybuddy on how to treat our friends! We love Pricilla too! Maybe now Harley can get himself a real goat!
