This is Rosie; she is a famous chicken who provides therapy to a special boy who we call “small child”. Rosie has her own Facebook page “Life of Rosie Cuddles”. Rosie is not your usual backyard chicken. Rosie & small child have an amazing bond. Rosie watches the movies on Saturday nights, standing on the arm of the couch; she sleeps with small child and sits outside his bedroom window on dusk waiting to come inside. Rosie even rides in the car & goes to school sometimes to. Rosie is more like a cat than a chicken. Rosie rules the roost. There are many other chickens at small child’s residence but Rosie is special. Rosie and small child have an incredible bond. On Thursday Rosie was found with a broken leg. On Friday 22nd May she was taken to the incredible team at New Plymouth Vet Group who were hopeful that once x-rays were taken of her leg they could splint it. But that wasn’t to be. Her leg had two bad breaks and the only option was surgery. Rosie is making progress eating & drinking, getting around a bit – but much to small child’s disgust won’t be returning home today. As you can imagine the cost of this procedure for Rosie will not be cheap and we are asking anyone that can help out to donate directly to the Vet Clinic, if there is any surplus this will be held by the Vet Clinic and used at their discretion for the benefit of other animals. If you can make a donation that would be much appreciated.
