by his stink I am sure duck has been hanging about dingy neighbourhoods full of dodgy people and dirtier food. No wonder he been lao-saing a lot lately! Which makes him utterly useless out in the field as well as at home. For instance, I got a wee stuck behind the fridge the other night and decided duck could get some practice in kitteh rescue. Instead, all he could do was poke and prod me while my paws were safely occupied with self-extrication. And when I finally got out, duck said it was cos I getting too fat. So I rewarded duck with my happy face and smacked him just slightly less hard than usual. It's so hard to live with an untrained fowl. Now, where's my chihuahua??!!
