OH and on a side note....Yesterday my Gracie (dog) was barking at something in our backyard. At first I was not too alarmed because this is an hourly event, but when DH went outside he realized Gracie was barking at a duck. Random....a duck in our backyard. THEN he walked towards the side of our house and got a face full of feathers. After the initial shock of feathers in the face, this is what he found!
That's right boys and girls, we have a mallard duck's nest in our backyard. We don't even live by a lake or any kind of water for that matter. After going over the options, we decided to leave the nest. I love all animals, and the mom is working so hard, the last thing I could ever do is take her babies away. So for the next 28 days, Gracie will be let out on a leash as we await the birth of 11 little duckies....SO cute! Gracie will just have to learn how to share. :)
Have a fabulous day!
