Last night I went outside to put Gizmo back in the shed so he could go to sleep. I had my dad come with me, because he was the one that locked him out. ANYWAYS, I couldn't see him, because it was dark out. Then my dad saw him and we went over towards him so I could put him back in the shed. The dogs know better than to mess with the duck, I even saw Gizmo go after Boo boo, so we arent worried about the duck and the dogs being alone together. As we were walking toward Gizzy, Maggie ran up to him, grabed him by the neck, ran with him, and was chewing on him!! I yelled at her, and she dropped him and ran off. When i got to him, he seemed like a goner. Usually, when i go up to him, he will quack or something. But when I got to him, he pulled him self under the car, and I couldnt reach him. So we had to get a broom and carefully slide him out. When I got him where I could reach him. His wing was sticking out to the side, so I thought it was broken. But he flapped it and put it back at his side. I carefully picked him up and he laid limp in my arms. My dad turned on all the lights in the shed, and I set him on the work bench and examend him. He seemed all right, so I put him in his house, and we went inside.
When I got in the house my sister started yelling at me, because i had pushed Maggie out of the way, when I was trying to get Gizzy from underneath the car, because she was trying to get him too. My sister said, "If you ever tuch my dog again, I will slap you so hard, you will cry of days!! " I told her I didnt hit her dog. And told her that Maggie would have killed my duck, if we had been 5 min. later. Well, my sister ended up getting in trouble, and Gizzy is better this morning. He isn't himself yet, but he isnt badly hurt, he seems to be a little shocked this morning. But he is walking around and flapping his wings.
Please pray for a speedy recovery!
