Years ago my brother and I were duck hunting along creek on the base when we shot a duck and retrieved it. The trouble began when we went to put Mr. Mallard in car. He came back to life and ran off into the tall grass and weeds. We combed the area trying to find him with no luck. How to find the missing duck? Call Mr. Whitt he has the worlds best black lab. Mr. Witt showed up twenty minutes later with the big black nose in the back of his station wagon. Minutes later we found the missing duck.
