oh God bless, poor little duckling - they are so cute and I was so hopeful you would be able to rear them both - never mind, even though it only had a very short life, you loved it to bits I know!!

Ahh bless Wendy. It is heartbreaking when little animals pass away. Some of us are just old (in my case) softies. Concentrate on Dab and Fab they still need you to look after them there is nothng more you can do now for Dib.
