A Cantope poodle companion sent us this lovely story to share.
A couple of weekends ago Penny was swimming in a bay area of Lake Ontario and a mother duck came along with her ducklings. Penny started to swim towards the duck and the mother came at Penny quacking and Penny returned to shore.
Next, Penny grabbed her ball and swam out to the duck again and when she got close she pushed her ball ahead of her to the ducklings, I believe as an invitation to play.. The mother didn’t even quack. They all just swam around a little bit and Penny came back to shore with her ball.
We have so much to learn.
