(Hatched: April 1, 1993 – Died: April 4, 2005)

God said Bobbie would be the only duck in the world with tear ducts.  She cried salty tears for the same reasons that children cry.

When 4 months old, Bobbie had a stomach operation from swallowing pennies.  This was followed by 7 foot operations over 5 years.

When 7 years old, her toenails mysteriously grew long and twisted (like twigs) overnight.  They remained like that for 4 days.  Then, she woke on the 5th morning with them normal again.

When 9 years old, she was blind with cataracts in both eyes.  Four months later she went to bed blind, but woke with her right eye totally healed.  Our Vet, mystified by this and following.

Some months later, a bad man on Robson Street burned out her right eye with a red laser beam.  Bobbie was blind again for another four months.  Then, she went to bed blind, and again woke with her right eye fully healed.

She died in my arms, having a heart attack.  Even in death, when her body went rigid in 20 minutes, her neck remained limp to her burial of approximately 54 hours later.
