A Little Bit of Sad.

While we were overseas, our two ducks, Dr Drake Ramoray and Charlize Theron were killed by foxes or dogs. Our housesitter is unsure. The two naughty ducks refused to go to bed one night, despite her multiple attempts to herd them into their duckhouse. In between attempts they were taken. She was so upset....and so are we.

Who is going to keep our dam free from waterfowl?

Who is going to torment and play with Paisley?

Who is going to snack on our garden greens?

Who is going to attack my trouser leg in the mornings?

There is no more "Go to bed ducks!" reverberating through our valley........

Vale Dr Drake and Charlize


  1. I am so sad to hear this Daffodil.


    May your 2 beautiful ducks rest in peace.

  2. Oh NO!! I'm so sorry Daff! That is too sad. Isn't it funny how much we connect with our animals. It makes their loss so hard.

  3. Oh dear. What a sad thing to come home to. Your poor house sitter.

  4. NO NO NO !!!! So sad for you Daff :(
    I'll miss their stories and their photos here. Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuggssss x

  5. I really, really sucks! Sorry. XXXOOO
