Our pattern of the month is the Goose! An interesting fact about geese is that they were almost all gone due to hunting. Now they have returned. Geese can live practically anywhere, they like grassy areas, parks and fields near water. Some people keep geese as pets. They will follow you around like a dog. In fact, they make great guard dogs.
