Goodbye, Reggie

My family lost a very special pet today.  Her name was Reggie, and she was a Muscovy Duck (or turkey peacock as I called her).  She was my brother's best buddy.

Reggie stuck out, because she suffered from Angel Wing.  Some would consider it a problem, but I think it made loving her hard to resist.  She also had a distinct personality.  She loved following people around and didn't mind being handled.  I became especially attached to Reggie after I spent a week with her and the other ducks.  She'll be greatly missed.

Right now, my heart is breaking for my brother.
