This little post is for all the folks that are confused and wondering. This little guy with a towel on his back is Peter. Peter burro. (Spanish for donkey.) I snapped this photo last year. I had not known Peter long. I was curious to see how tame he was. Would he accept something on his back? Would he have a tantrum? He had accepted the halter nicely so on to the next step. You can see that he did not care. I have no idea how old Peter is. I suspect he is a grandfather in age but I really don't know. Peter does tell me loud and clear that somebody hit him. I am very slow and easy with him when I have something like a shovel near him cause he tries to run away when he sees a long object like a shovel. Poor guy.

Ah Peter the burro, when we lived in Oklahoma one of our neighbors at the end of the street had a burro and my dogs liked to walk down there and see the burro.

@marcyaz That's a cute memory. My Mom enjoyed Peter when she lived here.

@sallypup It is a cute memory and the burro was not afraid of the dogs.

@Marcyaz When our dogs or even cats get too close to Peter he ducks his head at them in a threatening way. Pete had a chunk of carrot the other day. Our Siamese boy wandered over. Pete warned him that he had best not come very close or he would get what for!

@marlina Hello back! I wish I could post his voice. He sounds like an old bicycle horn when he talks. Peter doesn't hee haw.

If you were in the UK I'd have assumed it was a pun on the town Peterborough which is pronounced that way.
