Airborne duck caught by my really old dog with arthritis!

  1. Hi everyone when I got my first two ducks the first thing they did was fly away I spent two days looking for them and finally I found and caught one successfully but the other was still missing so I decided to give up but one day when I was doing my usual 6:30PM walk my dogs came across the duck! I tried to catch it but it flew over my head I chased after it through fields and houses until it landed on the ground this time my dogs being Australian Kelpies were really good sheep dogs and we surrounded it but again it flew away I was way too tired of chasing it so I stopped and laughed at my younger dogs attempts at catching it but my older dog was a really good hunter and jumped as high as she could she was completely vertical in the air so her full height and leap was in this jump and she managed to pull out some wing feathers which stopped it from being able to fly and I caught it and brought it home!

    Yes it was certainly cool, since the duck lived to tell about it.
  4. My dog would never hurt a duck! But maybe a duckling...
