I did not know that they will drop an egg every month or so before making a nest to drop a dozen. I found the last 2 singles that were by the water's edge now in a box under a lamp in the sun room off our master bedroom.

I hope I do not get woken up at 2 am as duck eggs hatch in my bedroom..
Are you Sure the Eggs are Viable? I know I tired to save many as a kid.. it never worked..

You've got good looking kids and it reminded me of a pic my wife took at my youngest grandson's b'day party.

All three of the oldest girls and their sons while my youngest daughter is in my lap.

I wish I could sneak out early, we are having phenomenal weather. It was actually too hot to ride on Sunday. Have been breaking records all week. It feels like July outside.

Doggies TOO?

This is Blacky and Bones. They were wondering the beach in back of us. Blacky thin but her young pup got his name ... how? We fed and watered them outside our wall on the beach. Next morning... they became ours. 4 years ago. Bones would not have lasted much longer.


And this is Rusty. We got her from the shelter. She put on weight so she had the nick name of "Emergency Rations". Her eating did her in when she eat some poisoned food that was tossed over our wall in a break-in attempt at 3AM. Rusty's bark changed and I was up. Rusty died in my wifes arms. She was a good friend and she did her job as alarm dog. RIP Rusty.


Rusty with Samantha on our back wall. Samantha also was a rescued dog. She also got a small dose of the poison that night... but we were able to save her. We just had a clap of thunder and she wiggles thru the metal gate bars and is now under my feet. She HATES loud noises. When we have Thunder storms at night she becomes our Magic Fingers vibrating bed attachment.


Bones aka main alarm system, all grown up. He goes with us when we take out the horses and bring them home. He is blind in one eye but if left behind he goes over the wall and through the barbed and razor wire on top. We don't know how he does it. He has a deep and load bark and howl when something alarms him. NO sleeping when he is in good voice... my job is to get up and check.... or tell him to: Stop.... Please Stop.

We also have another rescue Tosh but I can not find a photo of her. Bad me!

Thanks for sharing yours.

I doubt the eggs are viable since there is no telling how long they were out on the bank unattended. I would assume if they were then she would have laid/moved them to a more suitable area like the large group is.

I have learned to pick and chose the things I try to enlighten my DW about, this aint one of them. Haha

Sereno my dog is terrified of any loud noises. She doesn't even like when some fires their shotgun across the valley up at our property. We have some wild thunderstorms up there and a few years ago we had a huge storm and when hubby stepped outside in the middle of the night he didn't realize that Pepper had gone out as well. Woke up in the morning, where is doggie?????
We searched all over our property and neighbors no sign of her. Well there are 65,000 acres behind us so we figured she was gone. She did find her way back later that day all covered in burrs and shaking like a leaf. Poor doggie.

and CATS?

We had 2 cats in California, that we took with us to New Hampshire and then with us to the Dominican Republic. I don't have any photos of Mouse and she past away in her sleep on our bed a few years ago at 21 years old. Poor Oliver lasted another year missing her. He was 22.

Oliver getting some morning sun and one with him and Samantha that stole the sun away. ??? Lol





Oliver was a fun cat. He would pretend to be sleeping on the back of a chair. When I would walk by ..... he would reach out and open a vein for me.

Photos taken on our back upper porch in the Dominican Republic.

Enjoy and thanks.

I guess that ... we and our animals is kinda a high priority here and sooo many stories and memories. Perhaps a few nightmare moments too.
