Silly Ducks!

      Yesterday afternoon we were getting a bit bored so we decided to to feed the ducks...something Kinsey hasn't wanted to do for several years now, but thought it would be okay since it was a good exposure for Churry.  :)  Pat, Kinsey and I all went.  While Pat and Kinsey fed, Churry and I sat back and watched.  The ducks were quite loud and Churry really had a hard time focusing.  She would sit for just a couple of seconds, quivering with excitement the entire time, and then get up and try to go closer.  She really wanted to just jump in the pond and swim with them.  When she realized after several attempts that I was really serious about her not swimming with the ducks, she started whining!  Churry has never been too much of a whiner, so I knew she was really having a hard time.  We took some breaks and walked around and then would return to watch some more.  This is definitely an outing we will need to repeat several times this summer!  Good thing it's close and free other than a package of stale bread!  :)

  1. Great idea!! Wish we could find ducks someplace other than the parks (you are not allowed to feed them in any park system in our area). Hmmm, I'll have to be on the look out for some ducks and tag along my bread.
