I had posted this on the Coach RAOK reveal thread/board but am coping and pasting to this thread, too. Kramer will no longer go on a boat ride without his Ducky toy! My buddy sent Kramer, my mini Schnauzer, the cutest little Mallard duck toy last week which I posted about... When we start packing to head to our lakehouse for the weekend, Kramer usually figures it out and he will grab toys and pack them in his kennel to bring. Hes pretty sharp! This last weekend, the ONLY toy that Kramer took was his new "Ducky." We went for a boat ride and of course Kramer comes along and usually brings a toy and this time he brought Ducky leaving all his usual lake toys behind. As we ride around the lake on the boat, Kramer will jump up and watch people. He likes to bark at certain houses that have dogs or people... one area of the lake always has Canadian Geese in the water and on the land and Kramer is completely fascinated with them... I forgot to mention at the house, we always have Canadian geese that will swim by and often times come up onto our beach. Kramer LOVES it when these geese come and we say Kramer, the ducks are here! and hell race outside to see them. Weve always felt like he wants to play with them, and he never scares them off instead, the geese will usually swim up to where he is standing on the dock and honk or occasionally hiss at him. Anyway, were on the boat cruising around and we come up to a ton of Canadian Geese in the water. This is what Kramer did: He grabs his Ducky toy, jumps onto a seat and watches the Geese for a little bit... then he dropped the toy into the water!!! We scrambled to get the net to save the toy and get it back! A few moments later it occurred to us that Kramer was giving the Ducks his Ducky toy we really think he was trying to become friends! Maybe were reading too much into it, but it was just amazing. Hes never done anything like that before.
