They say "a picture is worth a thousand words", so I don't have to use many words. These images show how close our bond was.
This was our normal early morning ritual and the first thing we did after she entered the laundry room.
She really enjoyed it, she couldn't get enough of it. If my husband then came too close to us while we cuddled she became angry. My husband had to be carefull or she picked him in the nose, or she attacked him. Of course it wasn't a violent attack, but sometimes she squeezed his skin so hard that he had contusions.
She then could be very proud when he backed off. It seemed as if she saw this as a victory. As long as he stayed in the neighborhood she kept an eye at him!
This scene makes me happy again, happy... because we had the privilege to may have known her.
It was a beautiful time.
I wonder if there is someone else who had also such a close bond with a duck?
If that's the case, please let me know. I would be grateful!
She was such a little darling.
I hope you've enjoyed this beautiful memory!
