What’s My Tagline? October

by Jen on October 5, 2010

Meet Jasper.


Jasper Jules, or “JJ,” is not a dog, but he is doggedly determined, doggishly devoted, and doggone cute. Jasper is a two year-old, 190 pound American Saanen wether (neutered male) goat. He is a bit of a tool, and a bit of a goof, but above all a very nice guy. He’s at the bottom of the totem pole and he’s not the brightest bulb in the box, but we love him dearly. He was born here on Bent Barrow Farm in the Pacific Northwest, and he does great work pulling the kids around the neighborhood in his yellow cart. We sing to him and he dances: “Jasper Jules, he’s no fool, but he’d look silly in a swimming pool!” Or, to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody: “Jasper Jules! Jasper Jules! Watch him do the fandango!”


Jasper still lives with his mother, who is about eight inches shorter, seventy pounds lighter, and two times smarter than he is. JJ narrowly survived a life-threatening illness last week, and he’s home from the emergency clinic recovering from surgery. His mama is glad to have him back, as are we all.

Jasper Jules has a youtube video and a famous herdmate, Fenway Bartholomule but he is a simple goat. A Fetching Tag would jazz him up, and I know he’d be proud to wear one. It might make him feel special—and there’s a big difference between “short bus special” and “Fetching Tags special.”  He deserves the latter.


What’s his tagline?  You decide.  Don’t just decide – compete!  Submit your taglines for Jasper in the comments – best tagline wins a Fetching Tag.

This is going to be a good one!

“dim bulb”

Dog in Goat clothes?

Cloven hoofed?

Because of the youtube video, he may even be a ‘tiny dancer’, especially at 190 pounds! That is a BIG boy.

A bearded sage, Jasper Jules is not.

Fenway Bartholomule October 5, 2010 at 5:03 pm

Is family allowed to comment? Jasper is my goat, so perhaps I’m breaking the rules.

I suggest

“Mama’s Boy.”

Ears to you,
Fenway Bartholomule
