    She's beginning to remind me of Harley. Or, as she was originally nicknamed, Derpy. She still hasn't figured out what steps are for. EVERY other duck that lives here knows how to use the step to get into the pool. Not her. She'll try to climb over the side right next to the step. Occasionally she accidently gets it right, but she's usually oblivious.

    She could be like Tevye... He isn't dumb, but he thinks out of the box, out of the warehouse, two blocks down the street at the ice cream parlor.

    I hope so, that would be the best thing EVER! ...I admit it's hard not to compare her to Milkshake. I feel really bad about that, but I guess it's inevitable. Shakey was a real firecracker and smart as a whip! She'd have been a handful, but a joy to have, I'm sure. At least she's at peace now...I get to pick up her tiny footprint plaque Thursday.

    I'm just so relieved Bean is gonna make it. My face can't stop grinning. She really is an absolute sweetheart, and she loves snuggles <3 She's miles away from the frightened, skittish little thing we picked up in Olympia!

    No kidding. I really thought we were gonna lose her, she was in horrible shape Wednesday and Thursday. She wouldn't even move, she just let her head flop onto the ground and lie there. ;; I don't think I've ever been so worried, I couldn't even keep food down! But thanks to my amazing vet and the generosity of all you guys, she made it. Beyond all odds. She's a fighter, that's for sure! Good an' stubborn, just like her mama!

    I love this!!! ChaCha does that when she sleeps on the bed. If she can't be ON your head, she perches on your arm. And then, heaven help you if you should so much as shiver Lol

    She loves the wind! I think she secretly wishes she was a petite little call duck instead of the lumbering pekin fat monster that she is =P

    I've never been able to convince duck or goose that showers are the way to go. ChaCha will take it, but she much prefers baths. Sometimes if she's gotten into something nasty - you know, like walking under the parked car and coming out the other side caked in oily goo - I'll bring her in the shower and wring my shampoo hair over her to get her all soaped up for a good momma washin.

    Make sure and get us a zoomies video!!! I LOVE ducky zoomies! How can anyone resist that tiny fuzzy body having so much fun!


    SO CUTE!!! Naptime =)

    :lau :clap

    I'm so glad to hear she's doing well and here to stay! I hope to have MANY bean pictures in our future!!
