Puff was rescued as a tiny, sickly duckling, and somehow grew into the greatest therapy duck for her new mom. She knows exactly what her mom needs when she's feeling sick, and sympathizes with her so much more than anyone thought she could.
When Scott first started getting sick around Puff, Puff started showing signs of getting sick, too. She lost weight, stopped laying eggs, and her feathers looked unhealthy. Scott brought her to the vet, who couldn't find anything really wrong with her. The conclusion was that Puff was most likely having sympathy symptoms after seeing Scott so sick.
"Because she loved me so much she was basically heartbroken to see me so sick and it was causing her to have symptoms," Scott said.
