They are loyal pack animals and once you're accepted the treat you as one of their own and will never leave you. They are almost stupidly loyal to their pack (if one is attacked by a wild animal and injured, the remaining uninjured donkeys will NOT leave the injured one's side, no matter what ... whereas in a herd of horses, the other horses would flee and leave the injured one to die).

They really ARE lovely animals ... and if you want to hear what my parent's donkeys sound like, check out this video of Elmo saying 'hi' to myself and my father:

I'll be sure to give him the biggest hug ever ... and see if I can get a pic of him with something that's very BDW ... maybe he can be our mascot. LOL

They really do come when they're called ... and they serenade my parents (like in that YouTube video) EVERY time they call them when they're in the field ... it's pretty funny actually.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
