Ducky: For being you.
Me: …
Ducky: …

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: It’s not going to work, you two.
Ducky: What?
Me: Stare all you want, you’re not getting any of my food.
Ducky: …
Me: …

Ducky: Being unable to communicate due to her lack of both language and expressive eyebrows, she is warning in the only way possible. Through the power of staring.

Me: …
Ducky: What food?
Me: I love you, Ducky.

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.

A classic Ducky post for Father’s Day.
wellthatsjustgreat:

Ducky: Thanks, Daddy.
Me: For what?
Ducky: For taking me out.
Me: Kinda’ gotta, Ducky. You need to go potty.
Ducky: I know. But I can tell you don’t always want to. Especially when you’re comfy on the couch or in the daddy bed.
Me: It’s my job, Ducky. It’s what daddies do.
Ducky: Why didn’t you and mommy ever get one of those human doggies?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: You mean have a baby?
Ducky: Yeah. They seem very popular.
Me: They are. Just wasn’t right for your mom and me. And honestly I never thought I’d be a very good daddy.
Ducky: Why?
Me: Lots of reasons. I’m pretty selfish. Fairly lazy. I don’t make a lot of money. And then there are all of the things about me that don’t need to be passed on into the gene pool. I think I would feel awful if I created another depressed, anxious, underachieving loner. I can handle being unhappy. I don’t think I could handle having created an unhappy child.
Ducky: Oh. So all those people with human doggies decided to get them because they thought that they’d make great mommies and daddies?
Me: A lot of them did. But I think usually the condom just breaks.
Ducky: What does that mean?
Me: Never mind.
Ducky: You’re a good daddy to me, Daddy.
Me: You don’t always think so.
Ducky: You want consistent emotion, get a hamster.
Me: Fair enough.
Ducky: You’re a good daddy to me. Thanks for being my daddy.
Me: Thanks, Duck.
Ducky: Happy Daddies Day, Daddy. I love you.
Me: Thanks, Duck. I love you too.

I laugh at myself naked so we’re good to go…

All week we’ve been posting some of our more popular posts along with a few personal favorites that we love that never quite found an audience. It’s a good week to introduce people to Ducky if you’d like to help spread the word!

Thanks, friends. We love you!

Ag & Ducky!

Ducky: Why are you sad, Daddy?
Me: I didn’t say I was sad.
Ducky: I’m observant. You look sad.
Me: You look sad too.
Ducky: I’m both observant and empathetic.
Me: …
Ducky: What’s wrong, daddy?
Me: Nothing, Ducky. And everything. It’s hard to explain.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: If I thought everything was wrong and nothing was wrong and I couldn’t explain it I’d probably be sad too.
Me: …
Ducky: Sorry you’re sad, Daddy.
Me: Thanks. 
Ducky: And really sorry I can’t fix it.
Me: Not your job to fix it, Ducky.
Ducky: I know. But I’m still allowed to wish I could.
Me: Yeah. Thank you.
Ducky: …
Me: Sorry that I get this way.
Ducky: You’re not doing it on purpose. And it’s okay that you can’t fix it either.
Me: I know.
Ducky: But you’re still allowed to wish you could.
Me: Yeah. Really wish I could.
Ducky: …
Me: Thanks for staying close, Ducky. Even when I get like this.
Ducky: Of course. Just because I can’t fix it doesn’t mean I can’t try to help keep it from getting worse.
Me: Yeah. That’s what you do. And I may not always show it, but I appreciate it.
Ducky: So you be sad as long as you need to be. 
Me: …
Ducky: I’ll be here while you are. 
Me: And when I’m not sad anymore?
Ducky: I’ll be here then too. I love you, Daddy. All of you. Not just “happy” you. Or “feeds me” you. Or “pets me” you. Or “feeds me” you. All of you.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: You said “feeds me” twice.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I am fully capable of experiencing multiple emotions simultaneously and it is true that in addition to loving you I might also be a tad hungry.
Me: It is getting near that time. Let’s get your dinner.
Ducky: Thanks for still taking care of me even when you’re sad.
Me: Thanks for taking care of me, Duck. Even when I’m sad.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you Ducky.
