With Benjamin came a "companion" duck, though once I saw the size of him, I didn't see how he could have been much help in the body heat department. He gives the word runt new meaning. But all lives are precious here, and I never look a gift duck in the mouth. I am very glad to have him. I put he and Benjamin in with the other goslings (because, though he is a duck, he is WAY behind the girls and would stand no chance with them) and got a good look at everyone. Next to the goslings, Mr. Duck looks like a cottonball with a beak.

The duck was not wobbly at all. In fact, he decided right away to show his "dominance", and proceeded to nip everyone in the beak to prove how manly he was. It would have been effective, save for the fact that he had to jump up to reach them. It was the smallest guy on the playground taking on the biggest. Pugnacious little bugger.
