I am so very upset right now.... my beloved Pingu is probably dead.. she has been reluctant to go into the duck house for the past two days.. she has spent her nights in the chicken house and I have indulged her whim... tonight she did not come home and I found her on the border of the river, it was very dark... I had been searching for her for three hours.... when I did find her, she swam into the river and was taken downstream through the sluice gates... a 10ft drop immediately. I continued my search for another hour.. no sighting, it is snowing and freezing cold here.. I feel terrible... I should have herded her up earlier and forced her into a safe housing, she has been very willful for so long ... but that is no excuse, I am so dreadfully upset... please Pingu come home safely tomorrow morning....God willing a miracle will await me!
