We live and work surrounded by a profusion of pets. Leading the pack is our Maggie, an accidental pet duck who lives with us. Imprinted on Piddlewick, she doesn’t know she is a duck, so life with her is always an uncharted and rather chaotic adventure.
Maggie is mother to our other ducks; George, her bodyguard, who never leaves her side. Sir Studly, a true gentleman, and Beepbeep, our littlest, but with the loudest voice. Then there is Louis, a little white call duck that joined our family who adores cuddles and dried worms. The Zoomies, our two young girl call ducks whose curiosity knows no bounds. And last but not least is Gabby, son of and abandoned by Maggie as too weak, he has grown up in the house, and is another imprinted duck.
On the fur side, Chewie is our standard sized dachschund, and puts up with a lot!
Our cats are ~ Gingembre or Gigi for short (no surprises she is our ginger cat), who doesn’t like sharing. She is mother to Lapsong Suchong or Lappy (a grey tiger), our shy but playful girl, and Noisette (a tortoiseshell), who lives in a rosy world of her own making. (Here’s how our menagerie started.)
We’ve also looked after Chickens and Rabbits in years past. You may come across them as well in our animal antics archives.
A Gift for a Tale
Our Pet Posts are categorized somewhat, just to give some minor order to the chaos of living with this bunch. Maggie’s fan club will find her antics in Maggie, the Pet Duck. For general duck tails, check out Ducks and Chickens. Or to understand more about having pet ducks, there is Ducks 101. Our other pets and the variety of animals that join in our life can be read about in our Fur and Feathers posts.
And, if you are like us, and love all things animal, take a browse of our vintage Animal Lovers Gifts in our shop on Etsy. We keep our eyes open for anything lovely or unusual that relates to (all) animals. You never know what you may find, but if Maggie has any say, it would be all duck items. So for her sake, you can browse our various duck items below. We offer vintage and new duck related gifts in our shops.
