What the DUCK?! And Last Days of the Photo Challenge

Hi everyone! Before I tell ya'll about the craziness that happened yesterday, here's the last two days of the June Photo A Day Challenge. Mom's taking this month's challenge as well, and they'll be posted on Fridays. Which of these is your favorite?
Day 29: Soft
Dachshund Mommy: Nola has the softest ears ever

Day 30: A friend

On to the crazy! Guess what the peeps came home with yesterday. Just guess. Okay, maybe my post title gives it away, but they brought home THREE FREAKING DUCKS!!!!! Ducklings to be exact. And, get this, they refuse to let me eat them, I bet they're tasty  go near them! An another thing, those little duckers get their own kiddie pool! NOT fair I tell you! Not fair at all!
I guess I should tell you a bit more about them. They're a few weeks old, they were free (only reason we got them BOL), and their breed is a Swedish Blue. We can't tell if they're boys or girls yet. But if they grow up to be girls I'll have some tasty duck eggs for snacks! Since we don't know the genders yet, they don't have names.
We've got a veritable Noah's  Nola's Ark going on here! Now all the birds we have:
1 Cockatiel
14 Chickens (might be getting more soon)
3 Ducks.
Oy Vey.
Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola
Ugly little ducks aren't they


  1. Hey Nola!
    Wow, not just every pooch gets her very own ark! They might be a pain (and yes, tasty) but I bet they look up to you as a role model. Like a big sis. Anyway, great pool and they actually are kinda cute. I wouldn't go swimmie in their pool though...they probably go poop in there! BWAR HAR HAR.
    BTW: Love your patriotic background in the header pix!
    Grr and Woof,

  2. I love both pics but if I had to pick i would say the 2nd one. OMG I love those duckies - are they in your pool? lol I heard duck poop is yummy!

  3. Day 30 for me and we love the little duckies.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Aw, the ducks are cute! I wonder how duck eggs taste, I've never had one.

  5. Nola! They are SO cute!! NO hunting, girlfriend!!

  6. I like the "soft" picture best. I love the artsy-ness of the "dog part" shots :) I am also jealous of your ducks! I grew up on an urban farm and we always had duckies and chicks. I miss that.

  7. I bet those little critters drive you mad!!!! Do you fight the urge to 'play' with them? :) I love the second photo. I love the depth of field going on there- especially with the lights in the background.

  8. SO cute! Thank you for sharing!

  9. First Nola, let me say, we love your 4th of July header! You wear the red, white & blue well!

    I think you should name one of the new ducks after Dachshund Mommmy ~ C-R-A-Z-Y! Has your Mom gone and flipped her cotton pickin' lid? Stop what you're doing - right now - and call the VET for her! I think maybe she has sun stroke or something. And... to top it all off, they have their own pool? I'm telling you Nola, if you don't call quickly, the men in the white coat's just may be stopping by the house to pay her a visit at lunch time today. If they come by, call us and you can stay with us :)

    Huggies Sweetie,

  10. Horray for the red white and blue!!
    Like your big picture at the top :-)

    Your mom takes good pictures of you Nola <3
    Have a fun day!

  11. We love the friend shot best, but the other one is nice too.

    Ducks??? Do you have a lake nearby or will they always have the pool? We think scrambled duck eggs sound very good:)

  12. Ok - so u can't haf a ducklin'snack AN'they git their OWN POOL? This iz just so furry much UNFAIR! Better watch it Nola - next thing your mom bringz home may b a p-cock.

    Oh, an'boutz the pikchurz - 29 or 30? Why iz YOUR noze cut off just so your earz git the focus of the pikcur? (That just sez a little more 'boutz your mom, if ya'know what we mean). We like earz tue so 29 iz fer us.

  13. Oh...Mommy LOVES little duckies! Err...how are you going to keep them from flying off?
    Picture 29 is our favorite!

  14. Those duckies are SO CUTE!!!

    Your pal, Pip

  15. I cannot pick a favorite when there are only two pictures and they're both of Nola. The ducks are wonderful. Are they for eggs or eating or are they just for fun.

  16. OMD! Duckies? Well, I say you show them who runs the joint. At least take over the pool for awhile! Nola needs a cool-down, too!
    So, I have to say both pics are beautiful, but I pick...the second pic shows off your tender side.



  17. Ducks! How cute!

    I like the first picture!

  18. Hee!Hee! Noah's ark indeed! Those little ducklings are pretty cute! Okay, not as cute as you, Nola, but still cute! :)

  19. Nola's Ark... they should be 2 x 2 right? Or maybe your family is thinking that it's 1 family of ducks and they need to get another FAMILY of ducks to be 2 x 2 :)

    Wow... I love your ears, too.... :) I understand, at times, Cruella DeVille's love of dog furs... but wouldn't wear ears as a coat... never.

    Shelle, Milo, Dixie and Newby,

  20. Hi Nola-

    I like the "Friend" pic of you! Your new duckies are cute! I would like to try to "squeak" them! :)
    Love to you,
    Your Doxie Buddy, Noel

  21. And to top it all off they are in your pool!!!!
    Benny & Lily

  22. Nola....
    Day 29. Soft. But.... I beg your pardon, Mommy. My Rose has the softest ears ever!! No competition!! Hee, hee, hee.... ;op

  23. What the duck, indeed! My parental units say that, but they usually mean something else! You're sooooo cute, Nola!

    This reminds me of WDA duck jerky! Well, okay, no offense little duckies.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  29. Nola, this is our first time to stop by! We love your pictures, and the ducks are precious. I'm sure you'll become good buddies with them, remember ducks do bite! I like the crocheted red, white, and blue afghan...Happy July 4th!
