New Duck Day

Bella, Abby, Daisy and I received new toys today.  When our cousins were visiting on Sunday, our toys took a beating.  Here are a couple of photos of Abby playing with my duck.   She got a pink toy that she took outside and hid in the bushes.  Then she came back in to see what else she could borrow.
Daisy tells us she is very worried about her future.  She has been in the rescue system for several months now while her medical issues are taken care of.  One family has asked to meet her, she is looking forward to meeting with them and showing what a wonderful lady she is.   They are a long ways out of town, it will be a few days before we can set up a meeting.  Daisy made a trip to the vet and she now has ear drops for an ear infection and she has prednisone tablets, she may be itching because of allergies.    Daisy says that a homeless dog has to watch out for her own future, she never knows when she might have to go native.   Yesterday she practiced her survival skills by stalking and killing a loaf of bread that she had treed on the top of the counter.    She got into trouble when the bi-peds discovered her with the last bit of bread and a torn plastic bag.   She regrets getting in trouble, she was just keeping her survival instincts honed.   She said it was whole wheat so it was healthy. 

It is overcast and cool, scattered showers are going by, the swimming pool is still not open for use.  When it opens we will be inviting our friends in to share our opening party.

  1. You tell them Daisy!!

    I hope you find your new home ASAP. Although I have a feeling that you are loved very much at the home you're at right now!

  2. Don't give up Daisy!! You will find a forever home, honest!!

  3. Daisy, Daisy, Daisy, how could you sharpen your survival skill now that you are rescued. No need! You know Mogley and Bella won't let anything bad happen to you, and I think the resident bi-peds either.

  4. Daisy - Ruby salutes your hunting skills, especially for bread. She is a master hunter of bread on the counter.

  5. The yeasties made her do it!

    They talk to Merdie too!


  6. Daisy - I hunted for a long time as well until I found the humans I currently live with. They took me in through my trial and tribulations and on occasions I still get in trouble for killing the little bunny wabbits that romp through the yard :( But, I am hopeful and I just KNOW you will find great human people to own soon!

  7. I have that same kind of duck, and I LOVE it!!! Daisy, your hunting skills are Most Excellent, and I'm sure that the right family will appreciate the fact that you like whole wheat bread!

    *kissey face*

  8. Don't give up dear Daisy! There is a perfect home for you somewhere. We are sure that the loaf of bread was threatening the family, wasn't it?


  9. We are glad you got replacement toys, we guess those cousins can be very hard on your toys.
    Tell Daisy to not give up hope, there is a match of a forever home out their it is just finding the right one.
    Those loaves of bread, they have always been easy to sneak up on...BOL
