Nickname Confusion

 One day when the duck babies were just a few days old, I realized I was missing one! I searched and searched and prepared myself to find a dead duck. Suddenly I heard pecking underneath the pool cover. It seems one of them had gone under exploring and couldn't get out! I quickly lifted it and out he swam!

Only I made the cover worse...with more folds where little ducks could swim! As I struggled to straighten it, Mallory got SO mad at me! She started dive bombing me to make me stop!


Well, I'm the Alpha in this house (or I try to be!)...so I kept at it and Mallory kept diving at me and flapping and squawking! So I yelled at her:

"Allright! That's quite enough Miss Piss!  You're a bad momma for letting him get trapped under there!  I'm just trying to HELP YOU!  KNOCK IT OFF MISS PISS!"

I gave up and left the cover but I was very shocked to see Mabel, who had been curled up on the porch:
She was standing on the edge of the porch with a rather sheepish look on her face. I realized that Miss Piss is my nickname for her when she's being ornery and fussy! Poor baby thought I was mad at HER!

That is pretty funny. Maybe Mallory needs to be MRS. Piss:)

Poor Mabel, At least she wasn't trying to defend you from Mallory.

Mallory sounds like quite a character! Poor Mabel must have been very confused!

Your pal, Pip

Mabel was probably in trouble, too, if I know her!!

Miss you girls. See you soon...

Poor Mabel...my pups relate. When I raise my voice to one, they all think they are in trouble...

Mallory sounds like quite a character and I think she likes you a lot too.

Poor Mabel, she might think she was in trouble and I hope she got some hugs and kisses after that.
