Duck for Supper, anyone?

Many a times, while HC is at work, I usually switched on the laptop to blog or surf the internet to gain more knowledge. As I am fed barf meals, I read up as much as I can about this type of feeding. I remembered that it was modelled after some wolf diet. In fact, I am always fascinated by how the wolf hunt and eat their prey. Sometimes, I wish I can do the same instead of being fed slaughtered meat from the market.

And my chance came (well, almost) this evening....

It was a wet evening and HC decided to walk us at Park 1 instead of going dog run. During the walk, she will alternate leashing one of us, so that we can have some freedom to roam. (Not that we will roam far as we are more worried of losing HC...hehe)

At one point, Jack was leashed and he was trying to poo (he takes a long time to poo cos he is forever constipated). Suddenly, I sensed something else near me and looked around. There she was, all wet and rolly-polly shaped - DUCK! From the corner of my eye, I noticed that HC was preoccupied with watching Jack poo-poo. Quickening my pace, I ran towards the duck, at the same time, trying hard not to growl so as not to attract HC's attention. Alas, I was almost one feet away from the delicious duck when HC shouted, "Joey, No, Come back". Dammit.... reluctantly, I make a U-turn and walked dejected with my head down.
Sigh.........
(HC - Stupid Duck is still ignorant that she almost became Joey's supper)

One good thing came out of it though, HC praised me for being such a good boy in responding quickly to her recall. When we got back home, she gave us freshly dried lamb tendons to chew. Yummy... it is really really tasty. But I really wished I had the duck instead as it was almost 3/4 of my size, whereas the tendon is only paw-sized.

Edited by Joey on 22nd March 2006 : Oh no.. duck imports banned in Singapore! I should have eaten that fat one at the park. Maybe I will discuss with HC tonight if we can go there again.
