Grace is like most ducks, they do not
enjoy being held very much.

She becomes very afraid at first, until her loving owner reassures her that she is safe from harm.
She talks soothingly to Gracie while holding her tight.

and soon Gracie snuggles closer 

and rests her head on her owner's shoulder .
She *knows* she is safe

And she feels even safer when her feet are held like this. 
Her owner knows this and always holds her this way.

Gracie is a domestic duck, a Pekin duck. She has wings but cannot fly.
She lays large white eggs and has a loud quack.

 This is Day 18 in the Great Outdoor Challenge. Visit the others who play!
