How to Catch a Duck

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a GRRRReat Autumn so far! The weather has been wonderful here, we haven't had much rain at all. Everything is much cooler, crisper, brighter and sunny!

I just took my humans for another walk up the hill to the pond. This time my humans brought bird seeds to feed the ducks... Hmm, I could use this to my advantage... The ducks come much closer when there's food around...

Closer... Closer... GOTCHA! Well, almost... Poo! I was so close though! I guess attacking from above the water won't work too well...

I'll have to use a different strategy. Blend in. See, if just my head is showing, I look smaller... About duck size... And I can use my orange ball to make me look like I have a bright orange duck beak.

Do you think I look like a duck now?

Just give me a little while, sooner or later they'll accept me into the flock as one of their own. This is the best plan I've come up with in ages!

That is a very well thought out plan. I'll have to try it sometime as my strategy of running and diving into the duck pond has never worked before.

I think you look a little like a duck. A furry duck. You sure swim like them.
