EXITING OUR VAN at the Four Seasons Centre in Owatonna recently to attend the Minnesota Alpaca Expo, my husband and I did a double take.
An alpaca appeared to be seated in a Ford Excursion hitched to a livestock trailer.
But, no, that couldn’t possibly be.
And it wasn’t. Upon closer inspection, we discovered two shaggy dogs (sorry, I don’t know breeds) inside the SUV.
From a distance, though, they look remarkably similar to alpacas.
Now lest you are concerned that these canines were in danger and we should have phoned animal control, not to worry. Windows were open and temps were in the low sixties.
They did not appear to be in any distress. Just confusing folks like us with their shaggy locks…
