    You've never pumped your own gas.


    OMG... This one nearly got me into trouble a few years back!! Being from PeeAyyee... I never realized other states still had full service, LOL.. I was headed to New Hampshire to visit my sister. It was just me and my best pup Sadie in my pickup. We had made the trip many times, she was an awesome copilot.
    Now this dog was the sweetest girl, she never met a person she didn't like, or another dog that she couldn't make a playmate in no time. She was my absolute shadow when I wasn't at work and went everywhere with me, I swear she could read my mind and I taught her hand signals and tiny facial cues for commands. She would do anything for me and it was mutual! But again, she didn't have an aggressive bone in her body.
    I pulled in at a gas station in the very northernmost reach of New Jersey (she was leaning against my right shoulder) and parked in front of the pump. Before I could get out a fellow hopped up off the stoop where he and his 3 buddies were smoking and headed to the pump. I'm not prejudiced, but apparently my dog was... this guy was tall, dark indian and wearing a turban type head wrap (as were his buddies), and Sadie started growling like I'd never heard out of her before! I had the windows down and I the other guys must have heard her also because they all stood up and stepped toward the truck. I clamped a hand around her muzzle and quickly told guy #1, "just $10" (I just wanted out of there by then!) She continued to growl but luckily no one came any closer to the truck and she stayed in her place. Her volume ramped up when he came back to my window for payment but she didn't lunge, thankfully. I was never so glad to get out of a gas station in my life! I never stopped at a New Jersey station again after that... nothing against folks at the stations, but did learn that as much as my dog loved people, she didn't love gas station attendants who wore turbans!

    This morning I had two ducklings hatched and one was half out and now when I went for pics she is stiff!!! I almost flipped, she made it that friggen far!!! I pulled her out of the shell and it was filled with globby blood!!!! she musta ruptured her navel veins or something!!! OMG I was so sad!!!! WE ONLY have two ducks and I swear I WILL NEVER EVER HATCH ducks again!! or else I need to do ALOT MORE RESEARCH because I should have done some things different during incubation but I chose dry incubation route.. NOT AGAIN for DUCKS!!!

    QUESTION: what kinda dish and depth water do I need for newly hatched ancona ducklings?

    How about 'Collette" instead?

    Sally these are the things I have been telling you, hatching ducks have been so frustrating, i just gave up...My plan is to order hatchery ducks in the spring if that's what i have to do.
