got an email... the first duck we ever adopted out
passed away... Standish duck. I remember when we rescued
him from Spaulding Pond in Norwich. I introduced him to
his new family while he was still in quarantine. He was
a BIG boy and he had the biggest head--I told them, "He
is very smart!" So funny...
became our good friends after that and did a lot to help
ducks and geese, but then a rift fell between us. If you
think you can't get in a fight over ducks, I assure you
that you most certainly can. They were fostering some of
our ducks until we could expand enough to fit in all of
our rescues. They didn't appreciate it when we were
ready to come get our fosters. There were doing some
other things too, but I don't want to go into that.
it to say, they wouldn't let us on the property. We had
to go in with the police to collect our ducks and bring
them back here. We severed our ties after that, but we
still wish them well. They were good people with good
hearts. Sometimes our hearts cloud our minds though.
it was sad when we had our falling out. Sadder
still that today Standish passed away. They sent an
email letting me know. They knew I would want to know.
