Alpaca for me!

People are pretty good to me y'know.

A new friend of mine was just in the Adirondack Mountains and she was telling me about a wonderful Alpaca and Goat farm she was on. It sounded just wonderful. She told me what wonderful guards the alpacas are and how gentle they were. Of course I teasingly asked if she brought me back a souvenir. Well, dance of joy, she did! Here you see pictures of my very first alpaca! It is so soft and the natural shades of brown are lovely. From my first playing with it I am sure it will spin like a dream. It is fresh off the animal fur so I need to clean it. If any of you are familiar with cleaning alpaca please leave all your helpful tips.

My dog very interested in this new animal smell. Actually he got a little to interested and tried to make off with it.

Thanks, he really is a cutie. Does you cat try to sleep in it? I always kept mine up and away from my cat as she was the type to lay claim to everything. I mean after all, wasn't this really her house. ;-)
