HILARIOUS "Donkey in the House" video!

Hi there,

I hope it is okay to post this! We have entered a video contest being run by our real estate agent's company for clients selling their homes. We were supposed to create a video showcasing our home "from a pet or child's point of view". Well, I went a little crazy and brought my mini donkey into the house (much against my husband's wishes...but, well, he was at work that day...).

The resulting video turned out better than I was hoping, and people are finding it pretty funny. The question I keep getting asked is "How did you get him to do all those things?" The answer: PEANUT BUTTER! I had a friend with a big spoon and a jar of peanut butter luring him to walk around the house, so that's how we got some of it -- but lots of the funniest stuff the donkey just did on his own, and I wrote the script around what he did.

The result is now entered in the contest, and we are hoping to get voted into the top ten, because the top ten get judged by the panel of judges. We are currently trying to build our dream home, and winning this contest would be a huge help!

So, I hope I'm not breaking any rules by posting this, but if it's okay, here is the link to where you can see the video and vote for it. You can vote once daily, so if you like it, please vote, vote often, and tell all your friends! We would be so grateful. LINK:

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

This is the exact reason why I want a donkey. LOVE IT.

For the wretched of the earth there is a flame that never dies.
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.

I'm telling you, Pat -- you NEED a mini donkey. They are absolutely the most wonderful little beings...totally different than horses. Mine is more like a dog in that he'll follow you around all day, always wants attention, etc. But his attitude and intelligence is like having a smart 2 year old child around. He is bratty, loving, and just out and out hilarious. He gets away with MURDER with both of my horses -- it's pretty clear that they think he's cute, too. Don't know how I ever lived without him!
