Rossi....I am so very sorry... - Page 2

post #11 of 19

I'm so sorry for your loss and the terrible ordeal you and Rossi had to go through. :hugs

 

I know it's hard but try not to beat yourself up too much. It is easy to look back now and see all the signs and say you should have done something beforehand. I'm sure that if you thought for one second he would take it that far you would have done something immediately. When you remember her, try not to focus on her death but think of all your fond memories and the good times. It is clear she was greatly loved and had a wonderful life.

One good thing is that Georgie can never do such damage again...strange to relate but yesterday evening none of the ducks nor geese would go indoors...Georgie was there alone..I can only surmise that the witnesses were traumatised by his actions...he was swiftly removed and despatched..today has been strange...my geese have changed allegiance Freddie and Laura have sided with the original group...the three youngsters hatched this year are being ostracised...they were Georgie's friends..and they appear to be a little lost at the moment...not a bad thing in my opinion...I will have to see how things develop...

 

I love the photographs I have of Rossi with my dogs...Rossi enjoyed eating their food with them..it was a daily ritual...today and yesterday there are remnants of dog food that Rossi would have enjoyed eating...maybe some of my chickens will share the food with the dogs now... 

I am sure things are upset in their world right now having to adjust to the loss of one of their own and having been there when it happened Hopefully things will settle down and everyone will get along.  At least till breeding season starts up.

So sorry for your loss, Suzie.  Thanks for sharing - it will be of help to others in the future.  And, as lomine says, don't beat yourself up.  I lost two of my ducks last year to a hit and run driver and second guessed thing for a while but try as we might things will happen.  Memories of the good times with our flock members will always endure.  :hugs

Thank you everyone for your kind words of comfort and encouragement...

 

I am so heartened to hear that Rossi's demise will not be in vain...

 

I am now ever vigilant of my flocks...

 

So..here is the day in 2008 that my beloved Rossi entered my life and gave of herself...

Rossi far left...Stripes, Cyril, Julia and Stripes 2....all now gone but they will never be forgotten....

 

My heartbreak is at the loss of such amazing friends...all of them now in duck heaven...

 

It will take a miracle for me to put behind me the loss of Rossi...your comments are a part of the miracle to help the healing of my loss of such an amazing and great friend...animals are foremost in my life...

 

Thanks again!

 

Suzie
