Bobby Bob Bob gets a piece of bread that has Metacam soaked in to it every night before bed. Metacam is a painkiller to help her with the pain of multiple crushed vertebrae in her neck and a metal screw that remains in her gizzard. Both of these things are a result of her life in a battery cage. Every day we assess how she’s doing, if her pain is outweighing her joy, if her quality of life is diminishing. In the last few weeks she’s taken to running across the yard from point A to point B like a rocket from a bottle shot free. Today she cavorted and capered (as one particular C. M. Burns might say) in the Autumn sunshine, talking to me as I moved around the backyard. Thus far, she seems a very happy pudding.
