And if he had I wouldn't blame the dog one bit. This duck attacks me every time I walk outside and antagonizes the dog to no end. Snapping at his butt, squawking at him, splashing him from the pond, etc. I have tried everything to chill this drake out and he has not improved. I tried a Suprelorin implant and after nesting in my lavender for a few weeks he went right back to his annoying ways. This duck is an idiot and keeps going after the dog (small chihuahua mix) even though he's been bitten twice. I try to supervise the dog at all times outside, but the duck snuck into the house when my back was turned and there was a fracas in the kitchen that ended with two punctures in his bill. He was very fortunate the damage wasn't worse. Cleaned it with peroxide, covered it with a band-aid, and gave him some Bactrim... think he will recover. Keeping him inside in his pen until it heals up. But the big issue is that it is just a matter of time before the dog kills him. His behavior is just so bad and he is too stupid to learn from his mistakes... so weird, because his father (our other drake, who I adore) is so intelligent and well-behaved. I'd hoped that age would chill him out, but no luck yet. I've often thought it would be more humane to euthanise him and spare him a painful death -- either from the dog or me, weary of the abuse -- but the older drake enjoys his company (most of the time). Anyone else have a similar experience? Any advice?
