    I told my husband this afternoon that I needed to get one more duck. But it will have to be an indoor duck. Because the two dachsunds sit on his lap when he is home, and the six (outdoor) ducks want nothing to do with me (No matter what I have done to try to get them to be friendly - I am still the ugly, big, scary human who feeds them twice a day, cleans up after them, and brings them treats), because they have other ducks.

    He brought the dogs over and put them on my lap......

    Understand the empty nest syndrome.....literally and figuratively!
