Sleeping McQuackersons

First a shoe, then a shoulder, then a lap. "Martin" the duck (who turned out to be FEMALE, d'oh!) sleeping everywhere she can catch a break...  It goes without saying that Martin (Martina?!) is 110% prosh.




Wait for it....

there are EYE CAPSULES involved!!!



And now, all growed up—Ahn. Nice graceful neck curve, Martina.


As far as submishes go, this one is tops. Stherious, Katie J. Now, go back to class.

Ohhhh.... a duckling.
I always wanted a pet duckling.
At the U of Oregon there was a duckpond across the way from my department. Every spring the little ducklings would be scooting around the pond flexing their little wing nubbies all proud of themselves. They were one of the most marvelous things ever.

Adorable! My sister lives in Hawaii, and there's a canal behind the house where LOTS of duckies congregate. She'll love this!

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 10:46 AM

Squee! So cute! And yes, eye capsules!

...oh. The duck?

I can hardly take the little tweaky beak.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 10:49 AM

So cute!
And the duck aint bad either....

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 10:50 AM

SweetPea: my sentiments exactly!

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 10:53 AM

Wow - *great* photo sequence!

I want a shoeduck of my very own. ;)

seriously, let's take bets about how many comments there will be about the boy in these pictures...


 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 10:54 AM

I'd like to see a boy vs. duck showdown in the cute tracker. Who do you think would win?

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 10:57 AM

A duckie on the shoulder? If I was a pirate, I might get a shoulder duckie instead of a parrot. Quacktastic!!

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 10:58 AM

He is a very cute emo boy in an adorable blue outfit, and he is an excellent accessory for the adorable yellow ducklette!

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 10:59 AM

kestrien, I think the guy would win. At least he does in my book. But then, this site *does* pander to a mostly-female demographic (honoured exceptions like Teho notwithstanding...)

Melissa - Sometimes "if" is a very, very big word. :-)

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:02 AM

The duckie on the shoulder! EEEEE!

That is one not-ugly duckling.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:03 AM

Awwwwwww, it's like the ugly duckling story, except that the duckie was cute from the beginning itself!

I love how coy she looks in the last pic - as if she's smiling bashfully!!!! *SPLODE*

A friend and I raised an orphaned wild duckling, Mr. Peepers, one summer. Here is the secret about raising a duckling: If you have a tame duckiling with you, wild ducklings will not fear you. We would take Mr. Peepers out to the manmade lakeside in my friend's backyard (she lived on a golf course) and all the wild ducklings and would waddle all over to us (and on us) and let us pet them. Presumably because Mr. Peepers told them we were okay. Mr. Peepers, like Martin, also turned out to be a girl and is now happily living a semi-wild life on the golf course lake.

I want to raise a duck someday.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:18 AM


I just had to share this. If you're easily offended, don't look. Being raised catholic myself I was expecting to get all righteous, but I'm too lazy (insert deadly sin reference here).

Oh my god ! How a so cute Duck (l)

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:26 AM

CG - love it.

What a cutie, even at that young age they are very strong and agile.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:31 AM

In the last pic it looks like she is wearing duck shoes.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:35 AM

Shouldn't that be "sleeping anywhere she can get a beak?"

Tee-hee, pyrit!

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:47 AM

Stock up on Duck Diapers!

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:54 AM

Too cute. Pet ducks are snuggly birds and very affectionate (at least my duckie was).

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:56 AM

I wish it was "Slepping McQuackersons".

(Last time I posted, I think the robot spam checker called me a name and blew me a raspberry. It said "nrrdtf".

[snicker] to Laurie C. Twice.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 12:24 PM

There are just no words to describe how adorable a duckie on a shoulder looks.

Oops. Just did.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 12:28 PM

Hey meg, you know that duck is sleeping in a *shoe* not a *show* right?


Heck, I don't care where she sleeps! That duckie is adorable!

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 12:40 PM

Now I love me some cute as much as the rest of you, and yes the duck is cute. But screw the duck!! Hotness in the car much?

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 12:45 PM

The cute boy will never be able to play the saxaphone!

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 12:45 PM

Has martina met flapper? Love connection? You be the judge. . .

Ben -- "screw the duck" just doesn't rhyme.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 12:47 PM

Constance I think we should just let sleeping ducks lie.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 12:50 PM

just read CG's threadjack and peeped the link. O. M. Cheebus. coffee sure hurts when it comes out the nose that fast (wiping down keyboard).

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 01:00 PM

T., you hit the nail on the head.

As rivet-ing as what Ben said,

It didn't scan right for the thread.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 01:07 PM

Chucky Ducky!
Chucky Ducky!

They look so sweet and soft--I wanna pet one!

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 01:08 PM

Laurie C - Shuyeah, spam checker has snrgld me, and asked me wtf? To which I answered Frakff. Once, I got Nyrhe. I like to think of it as a little game we play.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 01:22 PM

Aubrey -- well "Chuck" rhymes. See also: Layla42

[keeps on truckin']

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 01:26 PM

But why add "Chuck" at all? Viachuck?

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 01:46 PM

Sorry, again, but how about a, "Duckies and Dickies" category?

That last picture really makes me miss my old pet duck, Ernie (who also turned out to be a girl despite her name). That look is TEWTELLY the ducky equivalent of the Princess Di puppy-dog eyes.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 02:13 PM

I went to that "get behind me jesus" website...becuz my weakness is curiousity.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 02:17 PM

I was referring to a link somebody posted on this comments page earlier.
