Duck Sagas: I Have A Crush On You

Great Dane being followed by his pekin duck

I mentioned in a previous post that Penelope’s hormones have hit hard. She comes to me for skritches when it gets to be too much. Which is adorable.  But lately her focus has been Bixby.

Bixby Diaries: This Guy Turns Five

I’m a terrible pet person, I don’t remember birthdays or adoption days.  But this year, of course, different with Bixby.  We didn’t think he’d have a fifth birthday.  So grateful for this day.

And this little girl is sixteen. I remember hers because I adopted her on my birthday and she was eight weeks old…and I can count backward, LOL. I saw her little angry face at the shelter and knew she was a good fit for our household.

I tell her she’s the last of the divorce crew and we’ve been through a lot together. And she’s raised her share of Great Danes in her sixteen years. But I’ve made it clear I expect her to stick around till she’s twenty-one or more.

It’s been a good day.

And here is my little sweetness. Adorable as always. Seems she had her nose in the duck straw. Cute and trouble. Fits right in.

Bixby was at the emegency vet on Wednesday due to excessive vomiting. Things went downhill from there. He had a rare and yet devasting reaction to the anti-nausea medication. So rare, it took a lot of research and ignoring a lot of veterinarians and trusting my instincts to figure it out. Because of course, I watched it happen in real time. Continue reading
