Some of you remember me posting about the little duckling....Miracle. Her mother kicked the egg out of the nest, and I thought it was dead...so I peeled the shell, to see what :would have been" well, she took a breath, and I ran her inside and ran warm water over her, to get her body temp back up. She has been doing fine. Peeping to me, giving me kisses...following me around the yard, and sleeping on the back of my neck...under my hair...like I was her momma. Well, this morning I took her outside, and put her in a wire cage, so I could clean her brooder. She was there alone for less than 30 seconds...when my dog got her. I am so torn up....I cant stop crying....my little Miracle is gone. I was SO STUPID to leave her there alone. I didnt think the dog could get her. I just turned around, and he got her. STUPID DOG! STUPID ME! It hurts so much...she was my little baby...and now she is gone.
