Did you ever make a decision about something… something that you were so sure was the right thing to do that you never really even had a second thought about it?
I was just positive that Seymour the rooster would be in much better shape if his bad eye (injured in the coup) was removed. His eye was really beginning to bulge and he didn’t seem to have good equilibrium. So I asked the vet at the wildlife center if she would remove it in exchange for a nice donation to the center. Today was the big day…
I never dreamed that this mornings hearty crows would be his last. He had a bad reaction to the anesthesia and died on the table before the operation even began. The vet gave it her best trying to breath for him but he just wouldn’t come back. His big heart just stopped.
I held it together while I was there but once in the car I lost it. I wish I had just left well enough alone. I sure will miss his wake up crows each morning, and his welcome home from work crows in the afternoon, and his good night crows at sundown….
Rest in peace Mr Seymour. I’m so sorry… We’ll miss you.
