"We were driving home along the highway when we thought we glimpsed something in a creek. At one hundred Kilometres an hour, you can imagine we weren’t sure, but thought we’d go back and see anyway.
We are so glad we did.
Stuck fast in the creek up to her chest was a dear wee lamb. She was alone, no other sheep in sight. The poor helpless soul was so very cold and weak.
We pulled her from the creek, and looked around for mum or anyone, but there was no one. So we did what we hope anyone would do, we bundled her up in all the towels we carry in the car and drove her back to North East Vet Clinic.
Seline’s temperature was so low it didn’t register on the thermometer. She also had a nasty sinus infection, which had clogged up her little nose and eyes.
We were very worried she wouldn’t make it.
But thanks to the great work of the team at North East Vet Clinic, Seline’s still with us!
The first thing she did once she came home was try and get a drink from our blue heeler/kelpie cross Minh. Minh who's 14 years old and doesn’t have a malicious bone in her body, took it with good grace, but keeps a watchful eye on Seline’s movements now!
Seline has put on a fair bit of condition, her infection has cleared up, and she is just adorable! Her personality is coming out now she’s feeling better.
Seline loves to romp and gambol about. She loves a back scratch, a chest scratch, and the area behind her ears tickled.
In fact she loves the same scratches Basil, Minh and Rollo do, and she will be treasured just as they are, for as long as she lives.
Seline has brought us so much joy, it’s really difficult to explain. In spite of being sleep deprived, learning on the go about making bottles and the fine art of applying nappies to a lamb, we couldn’t be happier.
With sincerest thanks and kindest regards,
Sharon and Paul"
