I am so sad because I lost my Bruce Goose, Goosey Lucy, 2 Amigos, Quakers, and one of my Embden's. I am sick so I went to bed early and didn't tell hubby to go lock up. Hubby is sooo tired he fell asleep in his chair as usual and didn't go lock up. My dog in the front yard was raising cain about 12:30 am and it finally woke me up so I woke hubby up to go lock up and see what she was barking at.......well he came back and said he only found 2 geese and 1 duck out of 5 geese and 4 ducks. I get up and go outside with hubby and we walk around and I am calling Bruce but he never answered. I am so sick and upset that I can't even cry..... does that make any sense? I keep looking out hoping they are hiding and waiting till its safe to come out. Hubby got on the tractor last night and went to the pond where he saw eyes and it was a dang coyote. He took a shot at it but we don't know if he hit it or not. He also rode around a lot of the 42 acres trying to find my babies but no luck. Bruce Goose is so special to me and its hard to believe he is gone. I could step out on the porch and holler Bruce and no matter where he was he would come running to me. He loved to cuddle and also loved to be carried around while I was outside no matter what. I could tell him he was a dirty bird and needed a bath and he would gladly go to his pool and take a bath for me. He was my protector and I failed him. Today I go to court for SSD and I am sick with a sore throat & coughing..........and now I mourn for my Bruce, Goosey Lucy, MeMe Amigo's, Quackers, and my big beautiful Embden. Sorry this is so long but I knew I could talk openly here with yall about my loss. I am still so upset I can't cry and it is about to drive me crazy.
