Although I normally do not like birds, I only dislike the ones who sing about stealing my snow in spring and thus, are the cause of global warming. One member of the bird family that I'm okay with is the duck family. They are cute, and they don't sing--they quack and they don't steal snow. I might add that Daffy and Donald have provided hours of entertainment for dogs and humans with their many film projects. However, the real reason I like ducks is because, unlike so many other of the bird family, they think and act more like a dog. How many other birds have business interests? Yes, Ducks invented duck tape, and they are the leading manufacturer of said product. Without their clever invention, many of the humans would probably have their houses fall down on them because there are so many humans who use duck tape to fix almost everything. I think my favorite human advocate of Duck tape was Red Green, who had a show on PBS for many years from his Possum Lodge. It was a very good show even if it could have used some dogs in it. In his Handyman Secret Corner segment, he used duck tape for more projects than most humans can imagine. If you haven't had the good fortune to watch his show, many episodes are on DVD, and I recommend it highly. The ducks even had the good sense to start making the tape in various colors so the humans could use it more and have it blend in. I can't tell you have many times I have been out riding in the car, and I have seen another vehicle wrapped in duck tape, and although my humans might say, that car is ready for the junk yard, this dog says, those wonderful ducks have saved the day again. I do believe in giving credit where credit is due so, for any ducks who might be reading this blog....quack...quack quack quack. and good luck in your future endeavors. You are one of the few credits to birddom.
