Huuwee and the Nooz

Remember this box?  It had Barnacle geese in it last time you saw it.
We've had another landing.  It happened a couple of weeks ago. 

Dad has missed Grampa, our Greylag goose something fierce.   Grampa passed away awhile back and dad wanted a pair of Greylags to replace him. 
See that smile on dad's face?   It didn't stay that way for long.  There were 3 geese packed into this box and it came all the way from North Carolina!  These geese are not Greylags.  They're a cross between a Greylag and an African goose and they are BIG and they look like a domestic goose instead of a wild goose.  And they can fly - not far because they're too bottom heavy. 
Dad put the box inside this pen and carefully opened it and out flew the monsters!  He and mom were both flabbergasted! They sure didn't expect this!
It took the geese exactly 30 minutes to decide that they didn't like the enclosed pen and they climbed on the wood stack that was inside the pen and flew out!  Dad was only trying to protect them from Witchy Dauby!
It's been a couple of weeks and Dauby is still being a witch but she's getting more used to them.   The male goose's name is Huuwee and dad calls the two girl geese The Nooz - get it - Huey Lewis and the News!

Check out the undercarriages on these geese. No wonder they can't get their fat butts off the ground to fly!

Can you see that witch biting the Nooz's butt? She is such a relentless meany!

The Baracle geese are doing wonderfully.   They are such happy friendly little guys!  They want to be pals with everybody on the pond!
Gussie and Myrtle are doing great!  Dad has them trained to get out of the water at 8PM and walk right into their swan house  for the night.  We are thinking that the night light and the milk and cookies are doing the trick  *wink wink*

Today is our sissy's birthday! 
Happy birthday, Melissa!  You are the bestest sissy ever and we love you!  We hope you have a wonderful day!

So until next time.........

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Happy Birthday to your sissy! And welcome to Huuwee and the Nooz! My mom loooooves Huey Lewis and the News! So, are your new geese staying, or will you be sending them back?

Happy Birthday to sissy!

Looks like you have a regular fowl soap opera going on there. Evil Dauby will triumph, no doubt. Beautiful but bossy. Sigh. Sounds like a lot of gals I know.

I am sure Beastie will feel quite slim when she sees those gigantic goose bottoms.

Happy birthday to her.

Those geese sure are pretty. Gretchen would like to chase them. I think the girl is rather confused about her heritage; she fancies herself a bird dog!

I remember the geese we had as kids. Geese can be okay pets, but sometimes they are a little ornery.

hkairedalespack said...

Wow, they are neat! We don't have any geese. They are much larger than the sparrows flying around my yard.
Hugs, Miley
