The Ballad of Poly and Sharik Part One
Blanaid left the ducks out after dark and we had a fox attack. Sadly Nick Nack was killed, I saw her throw up her little web feet and die, there by the pond. I left the body for the hungry foxes. Sharik was standing still by the pen, bite marks on his neck. Poor Sharik. But he was alive. But where was Poly. Later on by the house I saw Solly chase Loki the cat and he disturbed Poly who flew across the garden, panicking. We didn't clip the ducks this year just in case. I'm so glad. She flew across the park. Blanaid went next door and got Andrew to come with her into the park where they saw Poly. But they had Rosie the guide dog with them, and Rosie scared Poly. Poly flew off and we didn't know what had happened to her.
