More Fiber in My Diet

Look at the guy above and below.

Now look at this one:
And this one....

Can you spot the sheep?
Hmmmm...Had to look again?
Soooo--do you suppose that if I got the "dog" in the second picture that my neighbors would believe it was a sheep dog? While I'm sure I would have to explain the weird "bark" and the fact that it doesn't chase cats,pant, ram it's head in your crotch as a greeting or play ball, I'm thinkin' I could get away with having one of these beauties in my back yard.
What do you think?
Hubby already nixed the "it's not a llama, it's a spitting dog with a neck issue" scenario, so Larry the llama is out.
But I think this one might just work.....

I've never heard one bark, but they certainly *will* chase cats, pant, ram your crotch, and the jury's still out on the playing ball thing.

Heck, if my ducks can chase Frisbees (still working on the "bringing them back" part), a ball-chasing sheep does not seem outside the realm of possibility.

And you may not need to fool your neighbors anyway... you can have two sheep within city limits in Wichita (though the houses in our neighborhood are too closely spaced to achieve the required distance-from-adjacent-dwelling.

I'm sure a sheep wouldn't be any more obnoxious than my neighbors' dogs. Probably less. They might not know they difference if they never look at it's head. Heh.

Lara: Good point... we have eight ducks on a 50-foot-wide lot, and when they turned out to be noisier than expected (teenager phase, they got over it, though spring might see a recurrence) the neighbors' universal response when I asked "Too noisy?" was "Oh, no, we love to hear them, and it's way better than dogs barking!"

And that was *before* the free egg distribution started.
