Grey’s and Donkey Loving

“I’ve decided that donkeys are universally cute… When you pet their noses, they blink their eyes and bashfully look away as if embarrassed. And when donkeys hee-haw, they have their mouths and lips curled up as if they are smiling.” –  Johnny Rico

Wow, I haven’t gone this long from blogging (or even signing in) ever. I have been suffering from really bad bloggers block, not to mention the real other reason – 12 days ago, I started watching Grey’s Antatomy on Netflix… I won’t say much more besides the fact I started season 7 today, and all my tweets in the past 12 days were consumed with Greys, and informing Taryn over at PeaceAndPizza what guest stars I recognize, I am sure she is about to block me… I am such a loser. Seriously though, that seems to be the majority of the conversations I have been having with friends lately…


Yesterday though, I took a slight break to read up about my favourite animal. I have never been super open about this because people generally give strange looks when I bring it up.. So I am going to go public with this… Yes, my favourite animal is a donkey. Just thinking about them make me shriek with excitement. Have you seen that video of Kristen Bell with the sloth? That excitement she feels for sloths, is like me with donkeys… Like I said, I am such a loser.

Anyways, I was googling donkey images and then I thought to myself “hmmm, I wonder if there is a donkey sanctuary or donkey petting farm around me”….. well, one thing led to another, and I was pitching a day trip to Jamie.



He agreed and I was just ecstatic. I AM GOING TO A DONKEY SANCTUARY. We just have to pick a date and we are gone. It is about 3 hours away so it will be a nice little day trip with a whole lot of donkey loving.

It gets better though, I started doing more research on this sanctuary.. I learned the best news of all. Jamie didn’t seem half as excited as I was, but I don’t think we share the same passion for donkeys.



I am so pumped for all of this. It’s crazy that this sanctuary is so close to us. Apparently it is the donkey sanctuary of Canada, which makes it even crazier that it is so close. I am thrilled!!!!!

What have you been up to??
Do you love donkeys? What is your favourite animal if it isn’t a donkey???

  1. I feel like I need to watch Grey’s from the beginning to see all these guest stars! You know I love my favorites making cameo appearances. And I may not be a big donkey fan, but I have always loved llamas! We went to a zoo that had llamas last year, and I spent a little too long talking to the one that was closest to the fence haha. I have an awesome picture as a result, but Mike kept laughing at me. Hope you get to go to the donkey sanctuary soon!

    • OMG, Llamas are awesome!! I love those pictures of them on pinterest when they are shaven. There is an alpaca farm about 5 minutes from my house, I know they are different from llamas but cute nonetheless!

      • My cousin actually owns an alpaca farm! (I was into llamas way before she started it though haha.) She had one alpaca that looked like the girl reindeer from the classic Rudolph movie. So freaking cute.

  2. Just so you know Grey’s Anatomy is based in Seattle, which is not where I live, but it over there somewhere kind of near. I go there almost once a year, so very frequently. I run into Grey’s doctors all the time. Do you want me to say hi to anyone?

    • I know, I am way too obsessed and invested in it. I keep talking about the doctors like I actually know them/friends with them. I haven’t even been answering text messages to my real friends unless they are asking about greys… I am such a loser! I just finished the episode where Meredith/Derek get Zola back!
