    My mom came home from work today to find one of her Chinese geese dead. His feet were tucked under him and his neck was arched under the front of his body. The neighbor (who's a vet) came over and performed an autopsy. He had a piece of corn lodged in his windpipe! I had a rabbit choke on a carrot and die once too. What the heck?

    Sheesh!

    The most tragic, unusual things sometimes happen to the animals we love.
    The likelyhood is small, but it still happens.

    I am so sorry about your baby,
