We’ve recently acquired three ducklings, yes, but our little dog Caesar is aspiring to become a fourth.
He lounged with them:
He walked with them:
He even begged for meal worms with them:
Alas, although the ducklings tolerate Caesar’s presence, they’ve shown no interest in admitting a small dog into their ranks.
Which is just as well, since they’ll outweigh him soon. And they have claws.
It might be a good time for Caesar to come to peace with his dogness.
