    She has finally passed to duck heaven, Ebony was the oldest of my girls, she was nine years old last week, a good old friend who made me laugh, she wasn't ill just old age. I shall miss her. We have buried her in my "pet" cemetary section in the garden by the summer house.....am sad today.

    Linda, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know she was loved and well-cared for in her life and what nice memories you must have of her. I'm sure your little Ebony will rest in peace in your lovely yard beside the summer house. [​IMG] :aww

    Ebony knew you loved her. I'm sorry you lost her - she must have been a good little character and friend.
