ENSLAVED BY DUCKS is about a married couple, Bob and Linda Tarte, who start off buying a pet bunny called Binky and end up being completely enslaved by a whole menagerie of fluffy and feathered critters which include ducks, bunnies, cats, doves, canaries, turkeys, parrots, starlings, geese, and parakeets. Trouble is, just about every animal they acquire seems to have either behavioral or health issues. Bob is not afraid to let us know the warts and all side of animal ownership – and he and Linda love their animals, no doubt about it. Some of the animals are rescued from danger, others get sick and recover, some die; some animals are attacked and killed by wild critters. Each challenge sees the learning curve of the Tartes grow steeper. But for every drama there is laughter and a friendly beak rubbing against your neck, happy honks of welcome and a fluffy something or other snuggling in for a sleep.

Everyday seems to bring a different adventure, laughter or tragedy but above all it is the story of the endless love and devotion given by an enslaved couple to their animals. ENSLAVED BY DUCKS didn’t change my life, but was an entertaining way to spend a couple of hours.
