Majestic Diary

January 2, 2008

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...

Tutter not feeling well...
