It has been an emotional couple weeks at
majestic. Tutter the goose was limping one day and not walking the
next. It quickly became clear that he needed vet care... over the
holiday... why do our animal friends always chose Sundays and holidays
to get sick...
It was hard to enjoy the holidays when
every day was a battle to keep Tutter comfortable and alive. always so
keenly tuned into his physical and emotional state--so much so that life
outside of Tutter became an irrelevant distraction.
I can't tell you how many times I broke
down crying, pulled myself together and went back to his side again. I
felt my heart breaking every time I looked into my dear Tutter's eyes.
I laid down in the hay beside him, cupped his head in my hands and let
him nod off to sleep, my fingers in his soft neck feathers.
Never have I been so pleased to see a
pile of goose poop the following morning! Tutter is eating again. :)
My good friend is having surgery today.
She is Bunky, Pretty Girl, Merry, Pippin and Daisy May's former owner.
Taking them from her was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do
since opening our sanctuary's doors.
I'm so accustomed to coming in and
removing unwanted animals, it was completely different to take away
someone's beloved pets. a very painful day... many tears... I'm praying
for her again today...
