When I went to let the ducks out, Penelope had passed during the night. She was fine yesterday and a little lethargic when I put her to bed last night. I checked her out before bed, no sign of injury, no discharge from eyes or nose – so no virus. It will remain a mystery, but am keeping a close eye on Maddie and Mabel in case it was something viral.
She was more an exuberant puppy than duck and the yard will be quieter without her and my mornings will be a bit less happy without her demanding I pick her up and give her scritches.
