I’ve been trying for a few weeks to get video of their antics, but it’s been difficult. When I go outside they all head over to me to see if I have treats or something. This is the best I could do and is just a small sample of what’s been happening in the backyard as spring has sprung.
I’m not sure how to break the facts to Nick, but for now am letting him enjoy his spring-fling.
My theory is, much like with Mabel and Maddie with Jake – who happened to take his new found ability to go outside as an opportunity to spray the fence line (he was neutered, but that doesn’t seem to limit pheromones for some) and the ducks took that as a sign he was the perfect male to crush on. Poor Jake…
At 5 months, Trixie’s hormones are kicking in and this seems to have triggered Nick’s crush.
I do keep a good eye out on them because Trixie is, after all, a clumsy 5 month old with huge paws.
It’s calmed down a bit this week as the weather warmed, so maybe we are past the craziest part of it.
