It’s been forever since I wrote to you. Sorry about that. Things have been crazy here and any quiet time where Macy is being still is sleep time for me and relaxation time for Mom.
I guess I’ll do a quick update of everything.
On Thursday, Franklin, our pekin duck, stopped walking. After a few hours of research, it seems that it could be due to a Niacin deficiency. Mom’s not sure how this happened because Franklin eats duck feed that has all the important nutrients in it PLUS she free ranges and eats all types of bugs and worms. So Franklin has been staying on the back porch being catered to all day and being given niacin/critical care supplements.
She seems to be getting some strength back. From what Mom read, it takes a few days of being on the supplement before they are able to walk again. I don’t want to tell you what Mom and Dad were discussing if this doesn’t work. (No, they aren’t planning on eating her! That’s terrible!)
On Friday, Macy got her 2nd set of shots from the new vet who just so happens to be a mobile vet. Dad’s Grandson was still here and he was amazed that a vet came to the house.
The vet will be back on September 4th to give Macy her 2nd leptospirosis shot and to see me for the 1st time for a pre-dental exam.
After the vet left (over an hour later!), Macy and I heard a car. I mean, clearly Macy hears EVERYTHING with those gigantic antennae on her head.
Best surprise ever – GRANDPA CAME TO VISIT!
It was his 1st time meeting Macy and as you can see, she made herself right at home on his lap.
There was so much commotion on Friday that when Grandpa left and Macy finally got quiet, I fell asleep in the warm sunshine.
Saturday was the best! I got to go to the flea market and see all of my people friends!!!
Sunday was Macy’s turn to go to the flea market. Mom is not liking having to go twice but she wants to be fair and she says that both of us are 2 crazy to take at the same time.
So that’s about it. I’ll try to be better about blogging and visiting all of your blogs. Promise!
