Porsche's Home!

Good news! She's out of the hospital!

It was so busy at the Wildlife Center, I didn't think to take a picture when they first handed her to me.

I drove home with the A/C off, and was a wet dripping mess by the time we got here. I swear that duck pooped the entire trip in the car. How many ducks get to go for a ride in the car?? Scared shitless comes to mind! :)

I took her out back and her sister was sitting under the patio table. When I opened the cage to let her out, Ellen attacked her! It was AWFUL! I picked Ellen up and tossed her over the fence. Porsche hobbled into the yard and flew away. She was out of sight for about 3 hours.

She's still waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay down the canal, but I did finally get some pictures of her. She's free. 

She's in God's hands now. The Humans have done all they can.

Good News!

I just got a call from the Wildlife Center and Porsche is able to come home tomorrow. YAY!

There was a smidge of bad news - she is going to have a permanent limp. :(

I will get some pics of her tomorrow from the habitat and coming home.

Overall, good news!


Does anything else need to be said here?  :)

Porsche The Duck

Last Saturday we came home from dinner and one of our girls was out back and had a very badly hurt left foot. I tried to make her a nest and put her in there - No go. She sat out back for 3 days. She didn't get any better.

I called the Wildlife Care Center and they sent the ambulance and picked her up. She's been there a week today. She has a multiple fractured foot. She is on pain meds and antibiotics. Foot in a cast, resting on snuggly towels in her cage out in the pond hospital.

Believe it or not, I don't have a picture of her....one I can find anyway. I'll go and see her next week, so I'll get one then.

The good news is she is on the mend. I am sure she's isn't too happy being in captivity, but she is getting the care she needs. Once she is healed, I will go and get her and bring her back here. More then!

UPDATE: 7/22: Porsche is still in the hospital but the cast is off the foot. There is still quite a bit of heat in the foot, so she is still on pain meds and antibiotics. She's safe and on the mend. That's the main thing. More soon!
