I want an alpaca

I really want an alpaca. I mean an entire herd of them. They're soft and fluffy, plus they're sweet! Fiber animals and pets, all in one hardy package. And they have long eyelashes, which make them look extra cute.

Here's a quote from the site Alpacas

The Alpaca personality. Alpaca are gentle, calm, and make affectionate pets. They are social, herd animals - enjoy company - and communicate with soft humming sounds. They have a serene manner, yet they often seem to be torn between curiosity and shyness, with curiosity usually winning the inner struggle. These intelligent animals are easy to herd, can easily be trained to halter, and can be handled by anyone, even children.

I don't know if I would kiss my alpacas. Not on the lips anyways.

Is it a face only a mother could love? I can't help it, I think he's cute.

I just bought a book titled "Needled to Death". It is a "knitting mystery" where a crime takes place on an alpaca farm. I bought it after this Thursday's knit night, and I thought of you. I'll let you read it after I'm done.
