P. Goatee Goat, 15, the adopted pygmy goat of American Tortoise Rescue founders Susan Tellem and Marshall Thompson, died on March 5, 2016 after an attack by a German shepherd and a mixed breed dog who dug into the goat’s shelter. The dogs also bit two sheep friends of Goatee’s, but they survived. With the Tellems since he was two, Goatee was not ready to depart this world. On arrival at the Tellem household, Goatee slept with Jasmine, a German shepherd, in the guest bath for nine months. He never pooped in the bathroom during those nine months, and left just a few little horn prints in the wall. Goatee and Jasmine were constant companions, though Goatee liked her more than the reverse. A pair of goat wives were adopted next: Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush. He outlived them both, as well as Jasmine.
