Me: Hey, Ducky! Come here.
Ducky: …
Me: Come here, Ducky.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Why?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Because I love you?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: You can love me from over there.
Me: Saw me pick up the nail clippers, huh?
Ducky: I have keen senses. I noticed the slight change in posture, the variation in tone of voice, your furtive glances, and the slight increase in perspiration.
Me: …
Ducky: And I saw you pick up the nail clippers, yes.
Me: You need a nail clipping.
Ducky: So says you.
Me: And other people.
Ducky: Who? The Lady?
Me: She’s noticed, yes, but there have been others.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: The cat just wants me to suffer.
Me: Scooter has yet to express her opinion on the subject. But we did get a message too.
Ducky: What kind of message? From who?
Me: Someone who reads our conversations on-line. She sent us a note letting us know that she noticed that you needed a nail clipping.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Who does that?!
Me: Someone who cares.
Ducky: The pictures you use aren’t even always current! Whatever picture she saw may have been from months ago.
Me: Quite possibly. But it reminded me to take a look at your nails and you’re definitely due.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: That’s how Hitler got started.
Me: That is in no way how Hitler got started.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I might be having a bit of an anxiety attack.
Me: I’m sorry.
Ducky: See, I don’t know if you are aware of this, but…
Me: You don’t like getting your nails clipped.
Ducky: I do not like getting my nails clipped. Not at all.
Me: I’m sorry, Ducky. But how about you get a treat after we’re done?
Ducky: How about we get me a treat instead?
Me: ‘Fraid not. I’m sorry. But a treat afterwards I can do.
Ducky: …
Me: Or two.
Ducky: Okay.
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

I’m afraid there’s no new Ducky post this week. There have been some home owner near disasters at “Well That’s Just A House” that have been a bit all consuming. We promise to be up and running again next week. Thanks for understanding!
Me: Okay, Ducky. I explained to the internet people. Now give me that adjustable wrench.
Ducky: It’s a bad solenoid.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: I know it’s probably a bad solenoid, but right now we need to stop the water from flooding the neighborhood.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: So sandbags. Sandbags would be better than a wrench.
Me: Ducky…
Ducky: Right tool for the right job, that’s what I always say.
Me: You’ve never said that.
Ducky: I’ve never said half the things you say I say but…
Me: Give me the wrench.
Ducky: Hey, doesn’t this kind of count as a post? Becau…
Me: GIVE ME THE WRENCH!!!!!
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: …
Ducky: I loooooooooove you, Daddy!
Me: I love you, Ducky.

Ducky: This is weird.
Me: I thought it might make bath time less stressful.
Ducky: I didn’t know baths made you stressed.
Me: Not me, you.
Ducky: I don’t like baths.
Me: I am aware of that.
Ducky: And you thought adding another body to the tub would make it more enjoyable?
Me: It’s like a party.
Ducky: …
Me: Party in the tub!
Ducky: This is weird.
Me: Well sue me for trying something new.
Ducky: You’re wearing pants in the bath tub. That’s weird.
Me: It’s a swimsuit.
Ducky: I’m not wearing a swimsuit. Why are you?
Me: If I wasn’t this would be weird.
Ducky: …
Me: Weirder.
Ducky: Rinse me, old man.
Me: Me first.

Last Sunday’s new Ducky Post from wellthatsjustducky:

Ducky: You look tired.
Me: I am.
Ducky: Ran again today?
Me: Yup. A half marathon. And we saw a doggie run the whole thing with his daddy!
Ducky: …
Me: Over 13 miles.
Ducky: …
Me: Maybe we could start training you for that.
Ducky: …
Me: ..
Ducky: No need. I am already tired fairly regularly. 
Me: That’s not why you run.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: How long was that doggie running?
Me: About two and a half hours.
Ducky: Uh huh. And while that doggie was doing that, what was I doing?
Me: I’m guessing sleeping.
Ducky: Since I was asleep from the time you left until now, good guess.
Me: Not interested in running?
Ducky: I’m not saying that. But I’m working on soaring with my strengths first.
Me: You are good at sleeping.
Ducky: Yup. Slept all morning. You know what I have planned for the afternoon?
Me: Sleeping?
Ducky: Bingo. I’m pulling a double. I bet that dog isn’t doing another half marathon.
Me: No, I would bet not.
Ducky: What do you think he is doing this afternoon?
Me: Probably sleeping.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Jack of all trades, master of none.
Me: That’s one way of looking at it.
Ducky: Thanks for wanting to run with me.
Me: Always want to be with you, Duck. But I think you’re right. Focus on the sleeping. It’s your special gift.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you, Ducky.

Last Sunday’s New Ducky Post! Remember, new posts every Sunday at 7:00 pm ET at wellthatsjustducky:

Ducky: You seen the cat?
Me: …
Scooter: …
Ducky: …
Me: No.
Scooter: …
Ducky: She got scared of the vacuum and ran all the way up the stairs. Proverbial “Scaredy Cat” if you will!
Me: …
Scooter: …
Ducky: …
Me: You did the same thing.
Ducky: Incorrect. I went half-way up the stairs. And solely to allow you easy access to the cat hair covered carpet downstairs.
Me: It seems to be mainly dog hair that is getting sucked up.
Scooter: …
Ducky: The cat steals my fur at night and spreads it around the house.
Me: How does she do that, exactly?
Scooter: …
Ducky: Very quietly so as not to wake you.
Me: Clever. But you weren’t scared of the vacuum?
Scooter: …
Ducky: Nope.
Me: Then why were you barking at it?
Scooter: …
Ducky: Ergonomics.
Me: Ergonomics?
Scooter: …
Ducky: You were bending wrong. I was warning you so you wouldn’t injure your back.
Me: Very kind of you. Why don’t you come down now?
Scooter: …
Ducky: You should put the vacuum away first.
Me: Why?
Scooter: …
Ducky: Ergonomics.
Me: That makes no sense.
Scooter: Maybe that’s why you hurt your back.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Scooter: Meow.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you, Ducky.

Last Sunday’s New Ducky Post From wellthatsjustducky:

Ducky: New tree?
Me: Yup. The lady brought it from her old house.
Ducky: Smells like the cat.
Me: Scooter used to live in that house, yes.
Ducky: We were looking to further increase the cat stink in here?
Me: It doesn’t smell like cat in here.
Ducky: Acclimation, thy name is human nose.
Me: …
Ducky: See, dogs have good sniffers.
Me: Yes, I know.
Ducky: What was wrong with our old tree?
Me: Remember how it used to fall on you?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: That’s not a Christmas tradition everywhere?
Me: No. Just here.
Ducky: Can’t say I’ll miss it.
Me: Me neither.
Ducky: We should start a new tradition!
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: We are not going to try to make the new tree fall on Scooter.
Ducky: I just want her to feel like part of the family during the cherished holiday season.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: And I enjoy upsetting that cat.
Me: I know you do. But no cat squashing.
Ducky: Okay, Mr. Grinch. I love you.
Me: Love you too, Ducky.

Yesterday’s new Ducky post!
Remember, new Ducky posts every Sunday at 7 pm ET at wellthatsjustducky:

Ducky: You seem mopey, Daddy.
Me: Lil’ bit.
Ducky: This seems different than usual.
Me: Yeah. There’s actually a reason this time. 
Ducky: Are you hungry? If I’m mopey, that’s usually the reason.
Me: No.  
Ducky: Did you upset someone by chewing up their shoe? And now that person is mad at you?
Me: Closer to something like that. There are just some people who don’t care for me so much.
Ducky: Because you chewed all their shoes?
Me: No. They just don’t like my personality. And usually it doesn’t bother me. But sometimes it’s no fun not being the popular kid at school.
Ducky: Oh.
Me: …
Ducky: But lots of people like you.
Me: I wouldn’t say lots.
Ducky: The lady likes you. And you’ve mentioned others.
Me: Yeah. I know. But there are other people who don’t like me.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Some people don’t like me.
Me: Not too many.
Ducky: I know. It helps that I’m adorable. But I can tell. Some people look at me and I can tell they don’t like me. They wish I would go the other way. I haven’t even done anything, they just don’t care for me.
Me: Some people just aren’t “dog people,” Ducky.
Ducky: So you’ve said. But you’ve introduced me to people who you’ve said aren’t “dog people” and once they get to know me, most of them like me. 
Me: Being adorable helps.
Ducky: These people who don’t like you, do they really know you? Like have they played tug with you?
Me: People don’t do that.
Ducky: No wonder you’re mopey. But do they know the real you? The you that the lady and I love?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Not really. Away from you and the lady I can’t always be the real me.
Ducky: So maybe it’s not you. Maybe they just aren’t “daddy people.”
Me: …
Ducky: Daddy, if someone really isn’t a ‘dog person” is there a good chance that they’ll never like me no matter how adorable I am?
Me: A very good chance, unfortunately.
Ducky: So it seems like their problem, not mine. So I’m going to choose to not worry about the ones who don’t like what they think I am and focus on the ones who do like who I really am.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Seems like a good idea. I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you too, Daddy.
