My name is Lemon. I am a crested Pekin duck, hatched in a Kindergarten
classroom in April of 2006. I was born with neurological issues
which affect my coordination and balance. I am unable to stand or walk on my own but my friends made some special
equipment so I can stand up and zoom around. I have become quite a little swimmer too. As I get older, I need a little more
help, but I always love going in the water. I grew up in a classroom and at home with my teacher friend, Laura,
so I'm an imprinted duck. I just love people, especially children.
Don't feel sorry for me. I have a great life! I go
for rides in my baby carriage, to work every day with Laura, and home with her every night. I get oodles of
love and attention.
I have loads of adventures---and consequently so does Laura. I
go to the mall, outdoor concerts, Powows, camping, to the dentist (Laura's), the grocery store (shhh), to New Hampshire
to swim in the Saco River, canoe trips, and even to church. So many other places too.
My favorite things to do are: cuddle, swim, preen, EAT,
stand up in my stand aid or scooter (The Lemobile), and cuddle some more.
In the summertime, I like to swim in the river in back
of my house or in the Saco River in New Hampshire. I always look for minnows beneath the water and for other interesting stuff.
I also enjoy swimming with children. I circle right around them
for a few pats on the head, and then swim off a little, teasing them to come and chase me.
My friend Laura says I'm a joy to be around and that I
am a Quacktastic learning experience for all.
I hope you enjoy my Web-site!
