A few weeks ago while having my hair done by Lisamarie I was regaled with tales of Guru the sheep. I don’t often think of sheep as pets but this wooly lady apparently thinks she is a dog, plays with the kids in the family and happily joins the family on walks along with their two dogs Luna and Titch and the cats Whisky and Doreena. Lisamarie tells me that she would come in the house too if she was allowed. Although a hair dresser she says clippers stop short of being able to keep all that wool in check and Guru is professionally clipped once a year. She makes a great pet and earns her keep by keeping the grass down, and everything else apparently, however they do benefit from lots of free fertilizer too. She was originally given to the family as a friend for another sheep who sadly passed on but she doesnt seem to suffer any effects from being the only sheep, she is very much part of the family.
