See that title up there? That’s the text message that Blogless Sharon sent me on Friday night. It was meant to inform me that she is now the proud owner of two alpacas.


There they are. Neno is the brown one and he is 8 years old. Bandit is the black one is he is only one year old. Are they not the cutest things ever?

These alpacas just sort of fell into Sharon’s lap. You see, their previous owners got divorced and since the man was the one caring for the animals and since he was leaving town and since the wife refused to care for the animals, well, through a series of emails and phone calls they became Sharon’s.


I think they will be quite happy on the farm. They are surrounded by other animals including sheep, cows, pigs, chickens and a couple of dogs. Plus they have Sharon and Al to care for them.


And visitors like Dale to kiss.

  1. Yay for Sharon!
    When is she going to set up a blog??? We should do this for her. She can’t be having fiber-bearing critters and no blog. It’s just wrong. Wrong, I tell ya. It’s like having loads of yarn and NO knitting needles. It’s wrong.
    SHARON! Hay, SHARON! Get a damned blog already!

  2. They fell into her lap? That must have hurt!

    oh, I slay me. Seriously, though, they’re VERY cute, and Sharon is one lucky duck.

  3. I couldn’t think of a better place for them. Very cute- esp of The Sherpa Dude getting kissed. 🙂

  4. With those long legs and long neck, Neno looks a bit like a giraffe from a distance! Cute pictures, especially the one with Dale in it.

  5. Lucky, lucky Sharon! They are so adorable; I love little Bandit’s face.

    Dale and Bandit seem to have hit it off pretty well 🙂

  6. aww…when we lived in ma. one of my dreams was to move to pembroke and have an alpaca farm. or at least a few. wonderful! btw, who gets the first copies of harry potter at the library? is hannah on the list?

  7. I feel bad for the splitting couple, but lucky Sharon! I at first read your title as “alpacasaurus” — think of all the wool on an alpaca the size of a brontosaurus, but then again, how would you shear it?

  8. Love the photo with Dale! Who knew alpacas gave kisses? So much nicer than the spitting.

    Yay for Sharon! I hope this means there’s going to be a blog soon.

  9. Oh wow, that’s nice! Hmmmm…do you think that my apartment manager would be convinced an alpaca llama was a 40 pound dog?

  10. Dale and the alpaca sitting in a tree. K I S S I N G. Seems more like blogless Sharon’s Alpacas need a blog.

  11. That was a very good deed, giving a home to animals who needed one. And now she’ll never lack for alpaca fiber either! 🙂 See, karma.

  12. *snigger* I initially thought it said “Alpacasaurus” and wondered what the hell I was going to see. They do get dressed up in outlandish costumes for shows, you know – a practice I find undignified and unthinkable for my own.

  13. I believe that if I had easy access to alpacas I would acquire a not-altogether-healthy obsession with them. I’d get up early and stay up late and skip work and shun my friends just to find opportunities to plunge my hands in their amazing coats. Be very careful if you have addictive tendencies.

  14. Awwwr, they are pretty cute. I keep trying to convince K we should get some dwarf goats to keep the grass mowed ‘naturally.’ I have yet to be successful.

  15. I see that I’m not the only one who read the title as “alpacasaurus”. That had me a bit confused until I read it again 🙂 Lucky Sharon, getting some alpacas. They look like such sweet animals, I bet they’ll be a wonderful addition to the farm.

  16. That lucky girl! What cuties. True black? YUM. And a creature who appreciates human goodness, to boot.
