Riko & El Tocino aka. ET

Riko is having a little playtime with his new little brother, ET (El Tocino), but as you can see, Ducky, the brown girl (17+ and feisty as ever) doesn’t like ET picking on her big brother. I really think that she just likes fighting with anyone! (Believe it or not, the driveway was power washed […]


Watch the white Pekin girl in the center. Is she: A: mad because the grub won’t pop it’s head out B: stomping in hopes that the grub will pop up to see what’s going on up there. C: just making a bigger mess D: trying to make wine from mud E: just playing in the […]

Trooper and Little Sarah

Trooper didn’t take too long to find himself a sweet little girl to latch on to. He and Little Sarah have had a very ‘casual’ relationship (although the two have been playing coy with one another as of late) the past month or so. Little Sarah has recovered fully from her severely injured foot, which […]

Ducky, our Elder Stateslady

Ducky, a few days ago, enjoying her rain day with her buddies. If you remember, she came here several months ago at age 17, pretty good for a domestic duck. She comes in every evening and has run of the house, and a cozy carrier for her ‘bedroom’ at bedtime. She is slowly becoming deprived […]

The One that didn’t get away!

Late in the evening on I believe, July, 6, our friend Doug (caretaker of the Brighton Mill Pond ducks ~ words4it.com) called us to help him in the rescue of Blonde Bombshell #2, who had fishing line tightly embedded around her left foot. After we had just headed out of the driveway, I called to […]

Some Idiot’s ‘trash’, is OUR TREASURE! https://youtu.be/JZ4r-ruEkNQ&rel=0]

A Happy, Happy Ending!

The Epilogue…The other reason we made trip was to try to scoop up and relocate (to the Sanctuary) this little darling that was DUMPED off in this ‘paradise’. Thanks again to Angie and her daughter Caitlyn (who we just named another duck after…coming soon) for making us aware of these two sad (luckily, this time, […]

The One that got away!

As I try to get caught up on some posts from the many rescues that have ‘taken over our lives”, (but ALWAYS a happy takeover) these past few months, I will begin with a call I received from Angie over Independence Day weekend. She had contacted us for assistance when she had noticed that a […]

Another angel in Heaven

Sunday last week, 8/9/15, we were devastated by the unexpected loss of our very precious Patito. He had been out front under a miniature Japanese maple tree, in the shade, with his best girl Sophia, as well as Daisy and Charlotte. Theresa and I just returned home after a midday Sunday excursion, when she was […]

Cruelty, at it’s worst!

Sadly, the rescue sandwiched in-between the rescue of the infamous peacock and wild turkey, did not fair so well. If you had read the previous two posts, you may have remembered me briefly mentioning the trip to Woodmere Cemetery in Detroit. We received a call Saturday morning regarding a duck that had a severe facial […]
