The strangest thing is: how did it get here? We live a couple hundred yards from a pond, but it is way too far for a duckling to wander. And it would have gone by the neighbors with the cat fetishes. We called friends with 4-H connections and eventually met this great family that had a pond and kids and wonderful excitement for a duckling. God gathers people together in such funny ways!
Ren was sad to see the duckling go, but we are relieved to not have to buy duck chow. Have a happy life Duck!
