Ducky: And that made you happy?
Me: Yup.
Ducky: That makes me happy.
Me: And that makes me happy.
Ducky: Which in turn makes me happy.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: We should try to look happy more often.

Ducky: Thanks, Daddy.
Me: For what?
Ducky: For being you.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: You mean for feeding you and petting you and playing with you?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I don’t think that’s what I said. But since you just mentioned feeding me I forget.
Me: Sorry.
Ducky: So let’s try this again. Thank you for being you, Daddy. Thanks for being in my life.
Me: …
Ducky: I appreciate the things you do for me. But what I’m most thankful for is that you’re my Daddy.
Me: …
Ducky: Just felt like telling you. You look down today. So I thought I’d remind you.
Me: Thanks, Duck.
Ducky: Sorry you’re down, Daddy. But I just wanted to let you know that I’m happier with you around than I would be if you weren’t. Try to remember that, okay?
Me: Okay. Thanks, Ducky.
Ducky: You’re welcome.
Me: …
Ducky: Plenty of room down here on the floor if you feel like snuggling
Me: Thanks, Ducky. Sounds good.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you too, Ducky.

Ducky is supportive

In order to get the greatest compensation, your boss has to believe that you bring something to organization that no one else can bring…

…so tomorrow I plan to explain how I have the unique ability to instantaneously get thoroughly sick to my stomach by suddenly recalling some tiny mistake I made at some long-since-passed moment of my life for absolutely no discernible reason.

It’s a gift.

Her: Do you think maybe you're having a midlife crisis?
Me: What exactly constitutes a midlife crisis?
Her: Things like feeling bored with stuff that used to interest you, questioning the choices you've made in your life, feeling worthless, being anxious about the future, or feeling depressed when you think about your life.
Me: ...
Her: What?
Me: I think I've been having a midlife crisis continuously since I turned 15.
wellthatsjustducky:

Me: What?
Ducky: What what?
Me: Why are you looking at me?
Ducky: You look sad.
Me: Sorry.
Ducky: It’s okay. No reason to apologize. Just thought I’d keep my eyes on you.
Me: It’s not your job.
Ducky: True. But as a dog, my employment options are limited to begin with. The upside is I have lots of discretionary time, some of which I am choosing to spend by keeping my eyes on you because you look sad.
Me: …
Ducky: Any specific reason you’re sad today?
Me: Nothing. And everything.
Ducky: One of those sads.
Me: Yeah.
Ducky: Sorry. I know you hate those the worst.
Me: Yeah. 
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Want to give me a bath?
Me: You hate baths.
Ducky: Yes. But you never seem sad when you’re giving me a bath.
Me: I just think giving you a bath requires a lot of focused attention. It’s hard to be sad when you’re mentally engaged.
Ducky: I am not an easy bathing, I admit.
Me: If I’m not careful you’ll jump out of the tub.
Ducky: And then…HONDURAS!!!
Me: That’s the plan?
Ducky: There’s really no plan beyond getting out of the tub. But I thought you’d find a Honduran bath escape amusing.
Me: Well done.
Ducky: So if you gave me a bath you might forget that you’re sad for a little bit!
Me: Maybe. Or maybe I could play tugger with you for a little bit instead.
Ducky: That works too?
Me: It occupies my mind too, which is probably what I need.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I don’t want to influence your decision but tugger sounds like a much better solution.
Me: Agreed. But you would have let me give you bath if it would have made me less sad, huh?
Ducky: If it would have helped? Yup!
Me: …
Ducky: But let’s not dwell on ideas that we generated as part of the brainstorming process now that we have identified the best fit solution.
Me: Sounds good to me. I love you, Ducky. 
Ducky: I love you too , Daddy. Oh! And Happy Daddy’s Day, Daddy!
Me: Thanks, Duck.

Ducky is observant. And selfless.

Apparently if you have an anxiety disorder you can go backwards in time. 

Are you kidding? I can go back to that exact moment when I was 6 and I said something embarrassing any time I like.

well that’s just painfully accurate

I was sick to my stomach today about something I did in middle school…27 years ago.
So…that’s fun.

A post from two years ago on Fathers Day 
Me: You look pensive.
Ducky: …
Me: It means…
Ducky: I know what it means. Pensive doggies don’t always respond quickly.
Me: Because they’re being pensive?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Yes.
Me: What are you thinking about?
Ducky: Phenobarbital.
Me: …
Ducky: It’s the drug that…
Me: I know what it is. It’s the drug you take. It keeps you from having seizures.
Ducky: I thought so. But I heard that it is also how they put sick doggies down.
Me: Yeah. It’s that too.
Ducky: So how does it know to stop the seizures but not kill me?
Me: Doctor Robinson knows how much you need to keep you healthy. And I only give you that much.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I’m glad the two of you are doing that. 
Me: Our pleasure.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Funny how something that can kill you can make actually make you healthier if you know how to deal with it.
Me: …
Ducky: And if you have folks looking out for you.
Me: …
Ducky: You’ve seemed pensive lately, Daddy.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Yeah. There’s a lot going on.
Ducky: Good stuff or bad stuff?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Depends on how I deal with it, Duck.
Ducky: Good thing you have folks looking out for you too, huh?
Me: Yes it is, Duck. Yes it is.
Ducky: Happy Daddies Day, Daddy. Thank for looking out for me.
Me: Thanks for looking out for me, Ducky. Love you.
Ducky: Love you too, Daddy.
