Ducks And Friend (Or Foe?)



Drifting Along On a Beautiful and Quiet Autumn Day

The Autumn Bliss Is Disturbed ...

Out of nowhere, a four legged giant enters the water ...

The ducks are not sure they like what they see.  Bob and I watch with anticipation.  What is this little puppy (our neighbor's dog) planning to do?  Is he just curious and wants to play?  Or does he have other intentions?

Into the water he paddles, and away they glide ...

He is a good swimmer, that little guy!

He is still going, but a little more slowly now.  The ducks show no sign of distress.  They just glide along at a slow pace, at a catchable distance - as if to tease the poor little puppy.

The puppy gives up!  Lucky is intrigued by this strange pursuer so he circles back and follows the puppy.

Lucky is still intrigued by the four legged creature who is now on land.

Life Is Calm Again

The excitement is over.  There they float about under the warm Autumn sun.

Bob and I chuckled as we watched the interaction. 
Hope you find it entertaining too.

    1. Hi Deb,
      It was such a sweet scene to watch. I hope the ducks keep a safe distance. Even if this puppy is friendly, other dogs might not be and we don't want the ducks to think all things that look like the puppy are safe to be near.
