Introduction I am a Belgian woman and I write my blog in English (not my native language). Once I started my first blog: “MY NEST” with the aim to tell the life story of my beloved pet duck Pipke. Unfortunately she died on 9/14/2009. She became 14 years and 3 months old. On 5/31/2010 the inauguration of my second blog entitled “*LIFE STORY OF A DUCK” took place. *There I started to tell her story since her birth. But then - unfortunately on 9/11/2010 my life took a *dramatic turn (*see sidebar). The loss of Pipke had already taken its toll, but what happened at that moment became too much for me. This became the darkest period in my life. So I stopped blogging for more than 2 years because I'd lost the lust to live! But - the memory of Pipke kept me going on! So I gathered myself and I've survived the ordeal. Now I'm back to go further to tell Pipke's life story! May I invite you to read her story? It became a real love story! She was my faithful mate, the love of my life. On "MY NEST" I describe the last part of *Pipke's life (*click on label sidebar). PS: to my followers and readers: thanks for your support in hard times! .
