Now, whenever Polly has an anxiety attack, Lauricella puts her into the duck costume, and voila - instant calm. "She just calms down and goes to sleep," Lauricella said. "Instantly. It's become a thing that she's known for."
The duck costume is also useful when Lauricella has to run errands, but can't leave Polly alone at home. When Lauricella once stopped at a local store, she put Polly into her duck suit, and the little goat snoozed in the shopping cart.
