Well, That's Just Great
wellthatsjustducky:

Ducky: It’s dinnertime!
Me: No it’s not, Ducky.
Ducky: Yes it is!
Me: Afraid not.
Ducky: I specifically heard you say “Dinnertime!”
Me: The Lady and I are going out for a little bit. I said to her that we need to be home by dinnertime.
Ducky: There it is again! Two dinnertimes! Double foods!!!
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: I think you’re confused about how dinnertime works.
Ducky: Three-sies!
Me: But that’s pretty good counting for a dog.
Ducky: You say, “Dinnertime!” and then you get up and scoop my food into my bowl. Every time.
Me: I say it to announce that it’s dinnertime…
Ducky: Four! Better get started!
Me: Saying, “Dinnertime!” acknowledges dinnertime. It doesn’t trigger dinnertime.
Ducky: I’m going to need a bigger collar.
Me: It’s noon, Ducky. I’m sorry I said that word.
Ducky: What word?
Me: …
Ducky: I may be hungry.
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

Dinnertime!

wellthatsjustducky:

Ducky: Hey, Daddy.
Me: Yes, Ducky?
Ducky: Wanna’ play?
Me: Maybe later.
Ducky: Okie dokie.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Hey, Da…
Me: Later than that, Duck.
Ducky: Ah.
Me: …
Ducky: How much later?
Me: Maybe after the game is over. So like two hours.
Ducky: Ah! Good! Two hours.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Hey, Da…
Me: It hasn’t been two hours yet.
Ducky: No way to know. Lost my watch.
Me: You have no watch. Nor sense of time.
Ducky: That’s a myth.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: How about now? Two hours yet? The sun seems lower in the sky.
Me: We’re inside.
Ducky: Ah. That’s a lamp.
Me: … 
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Sooooooo…
Me: Fine. How about I throw your tugger a bit during the game? If you bring it back I’ll keep throwing it.
Ducky: Multitasking! Easier for dogs with thumbs!
Me: Humans.
Ducky: You have a right to be called whatever you want to be called. No skin off my nose.
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

Ducky: Daddy?
Me: I know.
Ducky: The cat is swatting me in the face.
Me: Well, not really.
Ducky: The cat is swatting towards my face.
Me: Well…
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: The cat is trying to swat in the general direction of my face without having to get up. 
Me: There you go! That’s a more apt description.
Ducky: Too lazy to get up to swat me.
Me: Kinda looks like she’d like you to help.
Ducky: Yes. It does appear she would like me to swing my face into her paw for her.
Me: Well?
Ducky: Not going to happen.
Me: Fair enough.
Ducky: This cat is just a big hairy ball of sloth and woe.
Me: Thanks for putting up with her.
Ducky: Thanks for putting her food where I can reach it.
Me: What?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: …
Ducky: Ow my eye?
Me: I love you too, Ducky.

Me: It’s called meditating, Ducky.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: ‘kay.
Me: …
Ducky: Looks like sitting with your eyes closed for a long time.
Me: There are similarities.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: It’s a little weird.
Me: …
Ducky: Freaking me out a little.
Me: Sorry. Almost done.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I’m gonna’ keep my eyes on you until you’re done.
Me: What do you think is going to happen?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Hard to say. But it’s just making me anxious.
Me: Ah.
Ducky: Do you ever get inexplicably anxious for reasons of ambiguous origin?
Me: Fairly often. 
Ducky: Hence the sitting?
Me: Hence the meditating, yes.
Ducky: Well, good luck with that. I’ll be here when you’re done.
Me: Love you, Ducky.
Ducky: Love you, Daddy.

Ducky: That’s my ball.
Me: Yes it is.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Trespassing and stealing. Nice.
Me: Penny is an invited guest. She’s not trespassing.
Ducky: Which makes stealing my ball even worse. Are we living in a society here or not?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Isn’t that Penny’s fuzzy you’ve got there?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: It makes a neat squeak.
Me: Yes it does.
Ducky: Deeper than the squeak my toys make.
Me: Yup.
Ducky: …
Me: The deep squeak pleases me.
Ducky: I could tell.
Me: …
Ducky: The concept of hypocrisy exists within a grey area of canine society, Daddy. 
Me: I love you, Ducky.

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 “helps” with my yoga stretches.

wellthatsjustducky:

Ducky: Don’t talk to me.
Me: You’re going to feel so much better!
Ducky: You always say that.
Me: You seem to always need the reminder.
Ducky: I wouldn’t say I need a reminder. You seem to need a rationalization for regularly water boarding me.
Me: I am not water boarding you.
Ducky: That’s for the courts to decide.
Me: Do you even know what water boarding is?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I believe water is involved…
Me: …
Ducky: …and it is unpleasant…
Me: …
Ducky: and it involves unwilling participation. So…
Me: There’s more to it than that.
Ducky: I know. You also use soap.
Me: No. I mean…
Ducky: Doggie torture!
Me: Stop. It’s just a bath. And you’ve been itchy.
Ducky: I don’t recall telling you that I’ve been itchy.
Me: You’ve given subtle visual cues.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: The constant scratching?
Me: The constant scratching.
Ducky: I’d hoped you hadn’t noticed.
Me: Almost done, Duck. Just need to let the soap soak in a little. Hey you know what could help pass the time?
Ducky: Filing affidavits?
Me: There’s a Ducky song about baths!
Ducky: …
Me: My parents used to sing it to me!
Ducky: …
Me: I could sing it to you. Carry on the tradition for another generation!
Ducky: Don’t…
Me: Rubber Ducky, you’re the one! You make bath time lots of fun!
Ducky: Is singing the thing that makes it water boarding?
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
