You might think that Ducky is not a favoured entity in our house due to some of Scott’s nicknames for him: Shitstick. Fartlick. Tickbait.
But this little dog is adored. Scott pets him and croons, “Oh, you.”
When Scott comes in the door after work, he looks for Ducky.
When he sits on the couch, he calls for Ducky.
When he leaves for work in the morning, he kisses Ducky and pats me on the head.
