Ducky

Mindy Reports

Brown's Ducky_2845
Ducky came into my life on his 8 week birthday.  My first Weimaraner, Ted, was a silver grey so I decided to go with a blue this time around.  People often ask me how I came up with the name Ducky.  I have a litany of answers:  he was born in Oregon, he was #7 of 9 in his litter – so  a lucky duck, he waddled a bit like a duck as a puppy, I’m Mindy Brown and there’s a famous fashion designer in NYC named Duckie Brown – but most important, I just liked the name, I found it unique and it fit him to a tee!  He has nicknames like Duskster, Duck Duck, Ducky Brown, The Baby, King of the Hill, my Angel, etc. but mostly he’s just plain ole Ducky.  He’s also my Hunter.  That hunting lineage is definitely at the forefront of his personality.  He’s always looking for something to hunt down – whether it be a fly in my kitchen or a squirrel running across my back wall.  He also thinks he’s a cat as he can leap and scale a 10’ wall.  He’s not so ball crazy as my last Weim, but he definitely likes to play – only problem is – he destroys all of his toys.  He’s definitely an elite athlete.  He loves to go to the park and play frisbee – loves to run on the beach and loves to go for rides in the car.  He likes to bask in the sun and lounge after his off leash hikes in an unincorporated area of Palos Verdes. He loves to play with other dogs and is as fast as lightning – always the leader of the pack.  He prefers to have a part of his body touching me and usually has a shoe, slipper or piece of my clothing tucked under his snout.  He likes to sit wherever I am and often times stretches a body part on me.  He’s also very loquacious – as he’s always talking to me – especially when I’m cooking in the kitchen or working on the computer.  But above everything – he loves loves loves to eat!  This dog has one mighty appetite and loves his fruits and vegetables.

I honestly didn’t think I could ever find an equal replacement to Ted, but after 3 years and several trips to Sun Valley – I put all my faith in Shela and Cliff – and my prayers were answered.  I had only two requirements:  a large blue male – and sure enough, I got that and much more.  Above and beyond all of his other great traits, he’s the SWEETEST and SMARTEST dog and an amazing companion!
