Duck Drama

Well, I let Hobbes join the herd this morning. Hobbes was used to being with a very diverse group of waterfowl so he really wanted to be with the other ducks and ran out happily to join them, but they are not used to strangers and really let him have it!

Sorry Hobbes!  Don't get too discouraged!

Poor Hobbes.


  1. Poor Hobbes!! I feel badly for him. :(

  2. I know, I hate to watch it, but they HAVE to go through it, there's nothing I can do about it. He is doing really well though, he's convinced he belongs in the herd and just keeps wading into the mix. They are accepting him pretty fast considering.
