One day while walking, Peggy showed her 45-year-old owner, Juliet, a living creature in need of help. The dog found a magpie on the ground; the bird was barely breathing. Juliette consulted with her partner, 52-year-old Reece, and the couple decided to keep the bird.
Concerned Australians went to their local vet to find out how to treat the magpie. The specialist examined the bird and made recommendations. Reece and Juliet took care of the magpie for a week, and even Peggy, previously afraid of birds, was concerned about the winged creature’s health.
The couple feared that the magpie would not survive; at first, it slept. But then she began to eat insects and drink the milk that was left for her. Having gained strength, it was finally able to move and fly, but it refused to catch lizards and worms in the street.
When the magpie fully recovered, she decided to stay with her new family, who had come out and rescued her. The bird was named Molly. Her foster parents tried to return her to her natural habitat, but she didn’t want to. The windows in the house were always open so the magpie could fly away at any second, but for some reason, she stayed.
They sleep, play, and eat together. Peggy has become the mother to Molly that the bird has lost. Molly thinks she is a dog, always running around on the floor following Peggy.
Peggy’s body has even begun to produce milk, even though the dog was not pregnant. After a trip to the vet, it turns out that this is because the dog thinks the crow is her baby.
