Lucky and the Rooster
We let Lucky and Charity out one night for their last run before bed. After a few minutes we called for them, Charity came in, Lucky didn't. DH went out the front door to look for her, I went to the back door, turned the light on and called, she came to me and came inside. I let DH know. I went to give them a treat and I saw what I thought was blood all over Lucky's face and down her neck, not a lot, just like her fur was tinged with it. Well, the neighbors across and a little up the road from us had gotten a rooster a couple of weeks before. It was always coming in the yard. My first thought, after checking to make sure it wasn't coming from her, was the rooster. Here DH and I go looking for the evidence to destroy it before the neighbors find out. We are each with a flash light, like to idiots, scanning the yard for rooster remains. We found none.
Now I go back to earlier in the day. I was at work and I sometimes bring home buckets from the bakery. They are different sizes and are useful for all sorts of things. I needed a compost bucket for inside so I picked one up and when I got home I set it in back of the trailer.
Back to Lucky. When we found no evidence of the rooster I went back in to clean Lucky up. BTW, her knickname is Lucky the Hog. I got a towel and wet it with warm water, sat on the floor and called her over to me. I made her sit and started wiping the red whatever off of her. Then the smell hit me, it was a very sweet smell. I started laughing like a mad woman and DH said,"What is wrong with you." I had tears rolling down my face and when I regained a little control I asked him, "Do you remember the icing bucket I brought home this evening. He said, "Yes". I said , "Guess what color icing it was, RED." Well Lucky the Hog found the bucket I forgot about and had herself a really good treat. Boy did she have a sugar rush.
