Not all pets are dogs, cats or fish

Thought I'd share a touching, albeit slightly unusual, tribute that ran in our paper Friday, October 9. The text:

Memorial and Burial Sunset Service in celebration of Petey Rowan
Sunday, October 11th, 6:30 p.m.
1926 Barnum Road Geneva, Ohio

Petey Rowan, a renown house goat, died at the age of five on Thursday, October 1st, 2009. He was rescued from a Zoo in Orono, Canada in 2004. After he moved to Geneva Ohio, Petey enjoyed an unusual lifestyle. Petey did "dog" agility, won several awards at the fair, traveled to schools, and especially enjoyed annual visits to the Deep Springs Trout Club - where he was welcome. Petey had a high level of intellect and could often outsmart his canine, equine and human family members. He could also toss an antagonistic small child three years. He will be missed terribly not only by his family, but by everyone who knew him, especially those at Big Creek Veterinary Clinic.
