Very sad here. My good duck, Francis, has departed for the great pond in the sky. She was a good duck who loved to talk...a lot. She gave me copious amounts of delicious eggs and years of good company. I ask advise now, from you all, learned duck people... What is to be of her boyfriend, Izzy, the sole remaining duck in my yard? They have been together since ducklinghood. Does he conceive of death? Is loneliness an issue for ducks? What to do now?
