Me: You’re on the bedspread, Ducky.
Ducky: I don’t know what that is.
Me: It’s the blanket that goes on top of the bed.
Ducky: Got it. Good to know.
Me: Off please.
Ducky: Off what?
Me: The bedspread.
Ducky: Hey, I just learned what that word means!
Me: Yes you did. Off.
Ducky: It’s a blanket. Like the ones I lie on.
Me: Similar. But different.
Ducky: How so?
Me: You aren’t allowed to lie on the bedspread.
Ducky: I just learned the definition of “bedspread” and I think you’ll find that is not clearly started in said definition.
Me: I don’t care. Off.
Ducky: How am I supposed to know the difference between blankets I can lie on and ones I can’t?
Me: Well, you could listen to me when I tell you “off.”
Ducky: That seems arbitrary.
Me: I’m trying to make the bed. Off please.
Ducky: So this blanket or “bedspread” if you will, will end up on the bed?
Ducky: But I’m not allowed up on the bed.
Me: No, you’re not.
Ducky: So why would I give up this blanket?
Me: Because I said so.
Ducky: Now that’s definitely arbitrary right there!
Ducky: But the bedspread smells like you. And laying on it is like I’m laying with you.
Me: Is that true or are you just saying it to get me to let you stay there?
Ducky: A little from column A, a little from column B.
Ducky: If you let me keep laying on it the bedspread will start to smell like me.
Me: That’s less of a selling point that you’d think.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you, Ducky.

The kind reviews keep piling up at Amazon!
"I have been following Ag and Ducky on Tumblr for a couple of years, and eagerly anticipated the release of this book. It is everything I expected it to be, and more."
"This is an enjoyable read, with generous helpings of humor, sadness and insight into the human condition, all neatly packaged in a series of exchanges between the author and his human…..or, rather, the author and his dog…..well, I guess that’s the point. Anthony Giffen created a wonderfully believable series of conversations between himself and his dog that gives us a poignant glimpse into their lives that is both engaging and entertaining. It’s well worth your time."
"Anthony Giffen has graciously offered his tough, difficult story in an easy to digest, delightfully funny look at how his very special special Dog, Ducky, quite literally saved his life. It is one of the most heartwarming, and relatable stories I’ve read in a long time.”
"This is a wonderful little book, heartwarming and charming. The adventures of a man and his dog, Ducky, as they tackle life’s problems at a time when life seems rife with them. Ducky and Anthony may help you see your own problems in a new light, with lots of laughs along the way, and may inspire you to find the Ducky in your own life, which may or may not be a dog, or even an animal. We all need a little Ducky from time to time."
"Thoughtful, funny, and at times incredibly poignant. We all talk to our pets. Sometimes, when we really need them, they talk back to us."
Thanks to everyone who has downloaded the Kindle edition and everyone who has bought the paperback. The Kindle version remains free through Wednesday, December 4th and Amazon has put the paperback on a very nice sale with plenty of time to still get it delivered in time for Christmas.
Thanks to everyone who has posted a review and everyone who has spread the word. Over 1000 people have our book in their possession right now and it is thanks to you!
Love you all!

Ducky: What’s Amazon?
Me: It’s where people can buy our book.
Ducky: Our book is here.
Me: That’s just one copy. People can get their own copies for themselves or ones for other people.
Ducky: Why would people want to do that?
Me: Well, the holidays are coming.
Ducky: And the book will defend them against these “holidays?”
Me: No, Ducky. People might like to give it as a gift.
Ducky: To people with thumbs?
Me: Yes, to people with thumbs.
Ducky: Because this book is hard to read if you don’t have thumbs.
Me: I know, Ducky.
Ducky: Would you read some of our book to me?
Me: You bet, Ducky.
Ducky: Because I don’t know if you remember, but I don’t…
Me: You don’t have thumbs, I know.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you too, Ducky.
