Paws Crossed

Tomorrow I go for my fourth bandage change and this time they will also be checking to see if the stitches are ready to come out as it now 2 weeks to the day they were put in. We also have our paws crossed that the infection has cleared up.

In the meantime I am playing referee at MY pond. Mom puts out cracked corn and feeder pellets for the Geese and Turtles but the Geese can get pretty possessive about the food and try biting at the turtles to scare them away - well today one of the turtles got its revenge and when the Goose tried to bite him - the turtle bit the goose on the foot and wouldn't let go - needless to say there was an awful lot of hissing, honking and flapping of wings. In my capacity of Bark Ranger I declared the turtle the winner :)  As you can see MY baby Geese are growing really fast.


  1. All paws crossed for you for your appointment, Reilly. We hope you can get the stitches out and the infection is gone.

    Those geese can get pretty aggressive, so kudos to the turtle:)

  6. CRIKEY ... Good luck for tomorrow. I've got EVERYTHING crossed. Even my eyes! Good on the turtle. Those geese blokes can get pretty nasty if you cross 'em.

  7. My paws are crossed tight that all goes well when the stitches come off! Please keep us posted.

    Hope those geese will let the turtles alone. I'm glad one of the turtles stood up to the geese.
