After the loss of Emerald a couple weeks ago I hoped and prayed my heart wouldn't have to deal with anymore loss... Sadly I woke up today to find that Slinky and Mr. Blue had lost their lives to another predator last night. Blitz has a huge wound on her chest and I don't think she'll survive... I wrapped her up but we might put her down later. It kills me to see her in pain... These animals always seem to take my favorite ducks... Slinky was the first duck I ever hatched and Mr. Blue had the most personality of any duck I've ever had. Here's Blue strutting his stuff. He was such a beautiful drake... I'm sorry I couldn't protect him... Here's Slinky as a first time mom this past spring. Zippy is going to really miss her... And here's Blitz, the second duck I hatched. She popped out right after Slinky. Please pray that she pulls through. If we lose her Zippy is going to be so heartbroken.. And lastly, here's Emerald and Jazzy. Poor Jazzy has been very down lately after loosing her best friend. Mr. Blue and Trooper are in the back. Blue has such a cute pose! What a great Valentine's day.
