An update on our Poop. He passed away this morning. Last night in a last ditch effort and many frantic phone calls around the Island, we found a female Pekin whose owners said we could 'borrow' to see if that would rally him. But by the time we got her over to him, he was so weakened from not eating and now not drinking that he didn't have the energy to rebound. She tried her best to make friends with him, but it was too late. We brought him in the house and made him comfortable. I tried getting electrolyte fluid into him, but he simply wasn't interested. He was napping at 2:00am when I checked on him. I fell asleep briefly and dreamed Poop and Fifi were in the yard together dabbling and searching for bugs. They were bright white and together. I woke at 4:00am and checked on him and he had just passed away. Still warm but gone just the same. So if someone says they are 'just ducks' and they don't have feelings or attachments, I truly can say that I have seen an animal die of a broken heart. They brought much joy and laughter to our lives. We were richer for having them, and poorer for the void they left now they are gone. Thank you to everyone on this site for your kind words and advise. It was nice to know we were not alone and there are many good people out there who see beyond the meat and eggs. Please hug your duck today.
