Donkeys, oppression and Texas
Donkey is dismayed, his Texan cousins, wild burros in the Rio Grande area have been rounded up and killed. Viewed as pests because the state considered the wild donkeys destructive foragers, and stealers of water (seriously). Using up valuable resources in the state park the donkeys were targeted because they are a threat to the resources used by other native species such as the bighorn sheep. Sigh. Thanks to some concerned donkey lovers the state has ceased the killing of Donkey’s Texan cousins. Hee Haw, says Donkey. If we had room on our compound they could be flown in to live here, sadly, with two chihuahua’s and Kiki’s shoes we do not have the resources or space to save any more donkeys. Plus, Donkey would be really jealous (she doesn’t like to share Sakis attention).
BTW This donkey is Liberty and she is 8 months old! Thank you for letting us know who she is 🙂
Sakis and Donkey are out celebrating this victory for the Texan burros!
Donkeys get depressed sometimes, especially if they are left alone for too long. Like humans donkeys must also have companionship. Eeyore is a donkey, and as we all know he was quite depressed, and sometimes he lacked the will to live.
Tonight Donkey is a bit depressed, she watched a movie and it sucked the will to live right out of her. This is the movie,
Now, it wasn’t a bad movie, but it was quite sad, and it made Donkey very sad. The worse part for Donkey might have been the scene where hungry people were eating live horse meat. As in the horse was alive when they cut the meat off. Donkey tried to put her head in the oven but I pointed out to her that is an electric oven and not gas. Don’t get all Sylvia Plath on us Donkey! It was just a movie. Okay, the bad stuff in it really happened, but don’t worry Donkey, Sakis is going to prepare an emergency food supply for you in a hole in the garden, just in case!
Cheer up Donkey!
The day after the god of all god’s, Zeus, attempted to lure away Donkey away from Sakis, both Sakis and Donkey decided to celebrate.
Donkey is suffering because she drank too much wine, notice her red nose. Donkey loves nuts and as always Sakis found nuts for Donkey. Donkey tried to write a note to Sakis, saying, I love you Sakis, and even though Donkey does not have opposable thumbs she did a pretty good job of writing the note. Poor Donkey, I hope she feels better soon.

In the beginning a small boy called Sakis had a donkey called Argiro. They lived in a happy village on a lovely island in Greece.
Sakis was happy, he had a donkey and the sun shone brightly on them both. But one day, when they frolicked in the field doing donkey things and boy things the great and most powerful god noticed them. Zeus was powerful, but he was jealous and he didn’t like to see a human have more fun than he did.
Zeus was perturbed. No, wait, that is not the right word, he was really pissed off. Here was a boy on one of his, Zeus’, islands having fun and not paying enough attention to Zeus the powerful god. The boy was giving all of his attention to his donkey.
One day, Zeus came to Sakis’ village and tried to lure , the donkey away from Sakis, but Argiro would not go. They don’t call donkeys stubborn for no reason. Donkey was Sakis’ friend and refused to leave him. Zeus tried many tricks to lure away the donkey. He tried carrots, hay, and even figs, but Argiro loved Sakis and refused to leave him and go with Zeus.
Zeus was angry.
sometimes the boy will have other animals but he had a deep close connection to his donkey and we will follow him as he and his donkey have many adventures.
This is Donkey. Donkey’s name is Argiro
