Lyn’s Blog – Dogs & Ducks – 18/01/2017

How cold can it get??

 -5 deg when  were walking the dogs or rather skating with the dogs, up and down our road at 06.30 this morning.  I have never seen the temperature gauge read such a low number before and hope not to again. 

Every morning and evening, come rain, snow, ice, gale force winds, my husband feeds and waters our pet ducks (while I feed and water our three dogs).

This morning, warmly dressed in hat, gloves and wellies,  my poor husband had to break the ice on all five ducks ponds  & water troughs.  This was to make sure that the fifteen assorted ducks, (Indian runners, mallards, call ducks etc) can have a splash around despite sub-zero temperatures.  And just when he thought it couldn’t get any colder, the rubber gloves he was wearing, split….not a happy hubby but very happy ducks.  They have their daily 5-a-day vegetables, pellets and particularly like munching away on the spinach leaves which are packed in the style of Crimp bottom bags we make here at Direct Packaging.

Do look at our new website for many other great designs of bags and have a chat or quack with us.

Keep warm,
