Memories of Maddy

It was 5:30 pm and starting to get dark outside. As I returned home, from walking Cooper and Otis, I saw something by the edge of the pond. As I got closer, I realized that the mallard pair was back for a visit. I brought the dogs inside and scooped up some corn.

As I started towards the pond, the female ran towards me, quacking loudly. When I was within arms reach, she raced back to the edge of the water. As I threw the corn to the ducks, I wondered, could this be Maddy and Paddy ?

I then realized that we have not seen Maddy and Paddy since Danny died, which is almost 4 years ago. I doubt that a wild duck could survive that long. In any case, I smiled at the memory of our super-friendly ducks and our special Golden boy.
