THE DUCK AND THE DOODLE | WW

By Wednesday, January 21, 2015 50 Permalink

Allow me to share a short and pawdorable story about the duck and the Doodle. A story about a strange relationship that literally came out of nowhere.

A few weeks ago the duck arrived in a bag as a gift for the Doodle. While he can be a terror to all things soft and cuddly – the duck must have special powers because he is still in one piece. Since his appearance they’ve been spending countless hours together.

Lord knows what they see in one another…

1

Fast and furious “besties” would be the pawfect way to describe their furrendship…

3

The duck seems to be rather “clingy” yet the Doodle shows no signs of frustration…

4

When the duck whispers to the Doodle, the Doodle listens intently…

5

One time the Doodle rolled over in his sleep. I thought the duck was a goner…

6

But “thank the doodle” he was able to wiggle free, flip himself over and the two“napped” together most of the afternoon…

7

#Strange.

THE END

Please stop by on Friday to see an incredible 3D pet print of Harley-Darley!

    Hello Harley! That’s lovely you have a new (duck) bestie, let’s hope he’s around for a long time!

      Teresa, I don’t hold out much hope for the duck. I’ve witnessed it too many times unfortunately 🙁 We’ll see…

      Thanks – you take care of Glory (and yourself) – we’re praying for you 🙂

    That is a very needy duck, but I’ve seen stranger friendships.

    • Cathy Bennett

      You and me both Sharon! Let’s see how long the duck survives living with Harley 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

    It’s so funny that you posted this b/c I was going to reply to your post about the frog destruction to tell you that (for some unknown reason) Wrigley used to destroy all his “lovies” in just a few days that same way… Until we started buying him this style with the long arms and legs! He prefers monkeys the most, but also has a lion, a cheetah, and a bear. Now he loves and loves on them (which involves lots of nuzzling, licking, cuddling, and occasional “rough housing”) until they literally become threadbare. I hope the ducky lasts a long time for Mr. Harley too!

      Amanda,that is funny. I had no idea he would tote that duck around like that. And I was super shocked that he would allow me to place it on him in so many different positions and just lay there while I did it. I too am curious to see just how long the duck survives. I’ll keep you posted for sure.

    Wonders never cease. Lol, now I have hope for a type of soft toy that may last longer than 10 minutes with Ziggy,” the King of destruction.” I’m definitely going to pick up a long armed cutie toy today 🙂 I’ll keep you posted.

    I think the duck took advantage of a sleeping Doodle! Love Dolly

      Good advice Emma, that duck does have the ability to steal hearts you know. So soft and cuddly.
