Me: You feeling okay, Ducky?
Ducky: Sure. Just tired.
Me: No more than usual?
Ducky: No. Why?

Me: …
Ducky: Did something happen?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Do you remember me telling you about Daisy?
Ducky: The doggie that lives with Grandma and Grandpa?
Me: Yeah. Well, I just found out that she passed away.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: That makes me sad.
Me: Me too.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Didn’t you tell me that Grandma and Grandpa saved Daisy?
Me: Yeah. Daisy was living with some people who weren’t treating her well. Hurting her. And when there was an opportunity to get her out of that situation, they did.
Ducky: Is that what all humans would do?
Me: No. Not all.
Ducky: Lucky for Daisy that your parents were around.
Me: Yeah.
Ducky: And were in the market for a doggie!
Me: Ha. No. No, I don’t think they particularly wanted a doggie at all at that point.
Ducky: But they still did it?
Me: Yeah.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: How long ago was that?
Me: I really don’t remember. A lot of years.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Did they treat her better?
Me: They treated her wonderfully. They loved her very much.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I’m glad they found her. And gave her a lot of good years.
Me: Me too.
Ducky: A lot of doggies don’t ever get that.
Me: No. No they don’t.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky:  But it’s still okay that you’re sad.
Me: I know.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I’m glad you found me.
Me: I’m glad we found each other.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Walks keep me healthy.
Me: Yes they do.
Ducky: Want to go for a walk and you can tell me more about Daisy? And maybe we can talk about Foley too?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: That sounds like a very good idea. 
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you very much, Ducky.

A special new Ducky post this week...

Well, I’ll just say it’s good that I didn’t see this the same day I saw “Up!”

Get ready to cry.

Dying
Not living long enough to finish this list.
 
  1. Dying
  2. Not living long enough to finish this list.
  3.  

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.

- Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

And Tiny Tim…WHO DID NOT DIE!

- Charles Dickens, in a shocking plot twist, revealing that Tiny Tim was immortal all along!

EVERYTHING’S FINE

Two divers look at a great white during a dive without shark cages in the waters off the coast of Mexico. Deep sea photographer Daniel Botelho took a series of pictures on a recent trip to a remote island off the coast of Mexico. The award-winning nature photographer insisted that while great white sharks are top predators they very rarely regard humans as food. He explained the key to safely diving with this notorious shark was to remain relaxed, keep eye contact with the shark and hold ones ground no matter how close the shark swims to the diver. Picture: Daniel Botelho/Barcroft Media

He further explained, “I’m just shitting you. We photoshopped it. What?! Someone took our advice seriously?! Oh dear God! Make sure they don’t hold their ground and make eye contact!! They hate that!! Oh God you ignorant hipster millennial fuck heads!!! Stop believing everything you see on the Internet!!!”

Clever. Especially the part when you die from eating pesticide/herbicide laced dandelions that you picked from the Quad.

A Longer Response to the “I have value simply because I am” mentions

Tropical Depression Revisited

There were posts before this, but they were usually just snippets meant to be pithy or funny. This was the first time I decided to go into detail and open up. And it felt good. 

Reading it, I hear how I was still low, and still unsure that the path I was on would get me where I wanted to be. But I also rememeber this moment as the beginning of seeing just the slightest flicker of light above me as I slowly began to transition away from only finding value in myself through accomplishments. Perhaps, “I have value simply because I am.”

This won’t be funny and likely won’t be interesting to most of you. But Un asked the question, and others I respect piped in, so for them, a little context. For the rest of you. I’m sure I’ll come up with a poop joke soon.

One of my favorite Ducky posts. I was dealing with some heady issues in my life at the time. Ducky was too. We helped each other.

Ducky: Hey, Dad?
Me: Yes, Ducky?
Ducky: What happens when you die?
Me: Wow. I don’t know, Ducky. No one knows. I think dogs like you go to a special place where you get to run free all the time, and not have seizures, and eat when you want and as much as you want and, if you wanted, you would be able to check in on me sometimes.
Ducky: Yeah?
Me: Yeah. And I think you’re gonna meet Sniffles and Sam and you’re going to get along really well because you were all my dogs.
Ducky: You think?
Me: Yup. I still think I see Sniffles and Sam out of the corner of my eye sometimes. So I think they’re around when they want to be; when I need them. But for the most part I think they run around and have fun because they know that I have you looking out for me.
Ducky: But what happens if you die? Where do you go?
Me: That I don’t know.
Ducky: But you think you know where I go?
Me: Yeah. I know that’s weird.
Ducky: A little.
Me: But I’m not going to die for a long time.
Ducky: Promise?
Me: Promise.
Ducky: Because you’ve told me things on those bad nights…
Me: Those were just bad nights, Ducky. They’re over now.
Ducky: But what about an accident? You could get hit by a car or get heartworm.
Me: Well, if I died I’m sure your Mom would take you back right away.
Ducky: Promise?
Me: I promise.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: If you go to a place like the one you talked about, when you weren’t running and playing with other people would you check in on me sometime?
Me: Absolutely. Whenever you needed me and sometimes just because…
Ducky: OK. Thanks, Dad.
Me: You’re welcome, Duck.
Ducky: Don’t die.
Me: You too.
Ducky: Ok
Me: Love you, Ducky.
Ducky: Love you too, Dad.
