Adopt A What?

The responsibility of  a pet owner is, and should be, terrific.

When a responsible pet owner found that she was moving to the city and needed to find a Good home for her pets, I stepped up.

My readers all know that I relish in the atypical genre of pets and you all know that I won’t bat an eyelash at taking on a potentially orphaned flock.

For my new readers this is nothing to quack at, because what harm could four measly ducks cause on a ranch of four hundred mama cows, a dozen or more horses, five dogs, ten chickens, nineteen papa cows, four cats and one pygmy goat?Laughing ducks

“Nothing to it,” I told the gal. “I’m happy to adopt your ducks. Heck, there is still water flowing in the canal for ‘em,” I added.

A short week later she arrived bearing her duck Family.

Two facts demand clarification; one, it is mid-October in northern Wyoming and two, I did emphasize the word Family in the last paragraph.

A rather steep learning curve lay ahead for this gal, for I have never reared baby ducks.

Who else would keep a baby duck warmed by the fire?
