My Pet Duck Died This Morning. Quackers 7-1-2003 to 5-19-2017
My duck, Quackers, died this morning, just short of her 14th birthday. She was the only licensed duck in the city of Hammond,Indiana, having been grandfathered in when the ordinance against owning fowl was implemented years ago. She is also in the history books for being a write-in candidate during the last mayoral election.

Quackers was a Mallard duck, rescued by me when she was 3 days old, on July 4th 2003. My husband and I were fishing at Wolf Lake Channel, when I heard a baby duck screaming about a couple of hundred feet from where I was fishing. I dropped my pole and ran over to where the sound was coming from. There was this 3 day old duckling, screaming, next to the body of her dead mother, who had been killed by a predator. There were no other ducklings around, and I assume the predator that killed the mother probably killed and ate them. I scooped her up, put our gear away, and took Quackers home. I had 2 different Vets look at her injured wing, but there was nothing they could do, and she would never be able to fly. I assume the predator had damaged her wing.

So, she became a house duck, since she would never be able to be released back into the wild. She was my youngest daughters constant companion, and my "Baby Ducky".
She had her own little pond we installed in the yard for her. She had partial run of the house, too. She followed me around like a puppy dog. She was sweet, and very affectionate. She loved to be held on my lap, and be petted like you would a cat or a dog. When she was running around, whether it was in the house, or my yard, I just had to look at her and say "are you mommy's baby ducky?", and she would lay flat on the ground, cheep like a duckling, and want me to hold her and pet her. She also gave hugs, where she would drape her neck over my neck. Last night, when she was starting to go down, she gave me 2 hugs.

I was getting ready early this morning to take her to the Vet, to see if there was anything they could do for her, but she passed away while I was getting ready to go. Yeah, I am crying my eyes out right now, and have been since last night. Quackers was given much love, and she gave total love in return. She is so missed.

There is now a pic of Quackers on page 7. It was taken last night, when she was starting to go down.

Dunno what to say OP... sorry to hear :\

I miss my duck too. We rescued one after a car accident in a storm, he slapped the windshield pretty hard, broke a wing. Named him Edward Ducksauce and he was a faithful companion for 8 long years after.

Background of my avatar: [link to en.wikipedia.org]

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

Ecclesiastes 10:2 “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.”

We are all born ignorant, but it takes a lot of work to keep looking the other way to remain stupid.

Islam is not a race - the racism rant is lame, used by the intellectually lazy to derail the debate.

Democrats do and always have loved poor people. . . they continue to make so many of them.

"Evil is." And being a useful idiot enabling it is no excuse.

Such a nice story. Thank you for sharing.

So nice of you to have rescued this baby ducky and taken such good care.

Rest In Peace Quackers.

I can't count the baby ducks I've had in my bathtub over the years. We have a lake in the backyard, and wild mallards, etc all over. Right now, we have "Broken Beak", that my husband has been tending to all winter. If it weren't for my husband feeding him daily, he wouldn't have made it through the winter, as his top beak has been partially broken off by a snapping turtle.

Saved one duck last spring, literally out of the jaws of a snapper. Pulled the duck out of the water(thought it had it's head stuck in a rock or something), and it had a snapper holding it's beak down underwater, drowning it. Turtle fell off, and that duck ended up fine.

Broken beak, though, is actually missing a huge portion of his top beak. Gone, so he can't pick up food like others. He eats dog food, because it's easier to pick up for him.

I'm very sorry to hear of your ducky's passing. They are neat animals, and you can set your watch to them showing up for food.
Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
