Buddy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Buddy
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Rouen Duck
Home: North Central Texas, USA
   This is Buddy! Buddy was given to me by a friend and ever since then has been a very special part of my life. I had hatched and raised a female Mallard Duck who I named Miracle, but she sadly went missing and poor Buddy lost his friend. It was a hard time for Buddy and I, but we held onto each other and are trying to get past that sad event,(though Miracle is never forgotten). Buddy wasn't always a "hugging", "kissing", loving little guy. When we first got Buddy he was friendly, but very shy. Eventually, Buddy developed a wonderful personality and he became accustomed to life with us.

    Now, Buddy has a girlfriend that my mother bought for me on my birthday, her name is M.J. and every morning Buddy walks up our steps(with his girl not too far behind) and onto the back porch to tap on the door for some a little TLC (plus some treats!). We try to spoil Buddy a lot because he is just a little bundle of love that never stops hugging and he deserves the best!

    Buddy lives in an igloo-shaped dog house filled with hay during the warmer seasons and a big wooden shelter also filled with hay during the colder ones. He has access to a pond (which I made from digging a large hole and putting a new kiddie pool into it) and he and M.J. have the whole yard (about one acre) to roam freely without a care in the world. I hope that Buddy knows that he and M.J. will always have a forever home with me!!
