As a writer, it's part of the job to know when you're about to lose your audience — or when your audience is about to lose themselves. So before you get too far into this, you need to make sure you don't need to be doing anything important. If you're driving, pull over. If you're supposed to be listening to someone talking, go no further. If you're trying to sneak-read this quickly before your boss walks by again, go ahead and just pin this to come back to later. You're about to look at a bunch of tiny puppies in Halloween costumes, so no there's no way you're going to be done with this any time soon. Don't start if you can't get lost in the Pupper Zone. You're welcome.
Blue Heron Farms is a small-scale, "thoughtful and humane" goat dairy located in Field Store, Texas. (That's near Houston. We looked it up.) They keep and breed Nubian goats, then use their milk to make cheeses, yogurt, and caramel. You can pick up their products at a few local farmers markets or coffee shops. The farm's operation may be small, but it has a rather large social media presence, in part due to adorable pictures of their animals.

The goats are listening to Motown this morning and I never realized that Monster Mash is just a Halloween themed Please Mr. Postman. 🧐— Blue Heron Farm (@Blue Heron Farm)1540387066.0
All of that was enough for us to click "follow" on their Twitter account, like, yesterday. But it gets better. Harriet, their foster dog, recently had puppies. To celebrate Halloween, the farm owners decided to make tiny costumes for the pups and tweet out pictures throughout the month.
Brace yourselves — it's even cuter than you think it is. Here are a few.
