So we all knew that Gwen was going to win the vet visit, the question was how she would choose to do so. First and foremost, she is in glowing health, so the doc is not getting anywhere near her for another year. But she also managed to escape from the varikennel when they were putting Stephen back in, perch on the vet’s monitor and deposit an enormous dropping, before finally being caught in a towel by the vet tech. (They turned off the lights creating a totally unfair advantage.) She got blasted with vitamins for good measure but is free of capillaria.
When she and Stephen got home, they had a long debrief that featured many grunts, honks, and caws. Also some TLC.
