    Wild Bill passed away yesterday. When the feed store got their shipment in of ducklings last year Wild Bill showed up and no one wanted to buy him, of coarse I had to take him home. Who could resist a face like that, LOL?! He was pretty special to us and I'm sure you can tell how he got his name. I kind of feel silly for posting this about him but I really do miss him a lot.

    Thanks guys, he was "special". He couldn't even quack, it was more like ack ack, LOL! I'm trying to have a sense of humor about it all. I suppose it wouldn't hit me so hard if I didn't have to go outside and hear his brother calling and looking for him.

    I am very sorry for your loss of Wild Bill (great name, btw). Everyone else is right though. You did give him a wonderful life that he wouldn't have had if it hadn't been for your big heart.

    So sorry for your loss. He was definitely a character.

    I've had the pleasure of living with a 'special' animal like this too.

    We had a rabbit for a short while, he'd been attacked by the dog that was being kept with him. I dont exactly know what happened but his neck/head was damaged so that his head was twisted round and bent up - he was constantly looking up at the sky and towards his butt end, if you know what I mean. The people had just left him in their garage, didnt take him to the vet or anything.

    We took him home and rehabbed him. Had to feed him with a syringe to start with, and by hand after that since he couldnt get his head to the ground. He lived happily with us for a short while, until passing very peacefully one night.

    keren- That was so kind of you to take that rabbit in and care for him. I can't help to think what would've happened to him if you wouldn't have taken him :hug:

    Thank you everyone for you kind words. Wild Bill's brother is slowly starting to get better. I was thinking of finding him a girlfriend, we'll see.
