Hello Sage...

Meet Sage, the baby Canadian Goose.. also known as 'Thumper'.
Sage came to us yesterday; while I was at Graduation, my brother and his friend were fishing in a pond. I guess when they were getting ready to leave, they saw the baby Goose, and it was having problems walking. So my brother, being the caring person he is, ended up getting the baby and bringing it home for us to take care of it. We ended up taking it to the vet, and it did have a fractured foot. So we are going to keep it for a little while.
***Update: Turns out baby Goose was starting to get a little too active for us; lot's of walking, pooping, eating.. so we released him back to the pond, and as soon as we got out of the car, his daddy came up on the the bank, along with his mommy and three siblings, and imediantly bonded! Yayyyy! It worked, they took little Sage without any problems. We have been checking up on him since the release, and he is still with his family!

He's so cute. I'm glad he found his family. We had baby ducks once...boy, was that a lot of work.
