Webster: the little duck who could...

Things went very well with Webster. But rather than tell you about it, let me show you with a little video I made for Shan, so she can remember Webster's time in hospital.

Thank you to everyone for their well wishes for Webster.... but thanks more for playing along with the drama of it all..... it made me laugh a lot. xxx


WARNING: Have a tissue close by.
You may get a little emotional, especially near the end.


EDITED TO ADD: The song chosen was used purely for fun, for it's over-the-top cheesy-ness and for the heroism Webster has shown. It is no reflection of my personal music taste and thinking of ways to pay me back for making you listen or taunt me are hurtful (she says smiling).... so think carefully before you comment.... you know I never forget!

Speechless. Teary, and speechless.

(can't BELIEVE your musical taste - I'm going to have to find some way to make you pay).

I've only made it second eight and already I am tearing up. I shall have to go back and finish watching now.

CurlyPops said...

You just cracked me up!

Selina said...

oh, that will be the highlight of my day!

so glad he has made a full recovery, it seemed like it was touch and go there for awhile. hehe.

Oh Webster, you could be the hero of A Current Affair with your touching story.

And the Dircetor could get an award for this emotional video.

You give all other duckies hope Webster!

:)

Becky said...

Awww! I love a happy ending!!

daws said...

:'( sniff, it's just so beautiful!

You could have at least taken the opportunity to give poor Webster some eyes after all he's been through!

Good work Dr Cardigan!

Cass said...

So glad Webster is all better although I too think his life may have been enhanced with eyes.

Nikki Cardigan said...

Just thought I'd let you know that like some of you, I too assumed Izzy the dog had chewed off Webster's eyes. Shan was very quick to tell me that his eyes are OK... even though you can't see them, there are black stitched eyes in my fur.

m.e (Cathie) said...

ohhh!!! Nikki!!! I'm soo glad Webster is fine, what a great tribute...what a bad song :)
Thanks for letting us all know of his condition & recovery!

p.s I noticed a bottle of wine in the background...was that for the Dr or patient :)

Tyroga said...

hahahaha awesome... funny to see the comment from Daws, all I could think was where are his eyes and then you explained. Little-eyed duck.

You've done an awesome job making him better.

And we always knew you LOVE Mariah! Now we have the proof.

Macca said...

I am so glad that Webster is back with us again...

Looks like your love of Mariah is no longer your little secret...

Was that taken from your own music library??? Uhuh, I thought so... ;-)

Julianne said...

Aww... that is simply too sweet!

Now, where are my tissues, my eyes seem to be leaking... but I am not sure if that is due to the trials and tribulations of Webster or if it pains me to listen to that song (hee hee).

truj said...

Oh (sob) Webster, you (sob) little trooper (sob) - with your one (sob) strong wing. You are the Nemo of the duck world.

And Mariah ... Nik we need to talk!

Stephanie and Carlos said...

LMAO... Nikki your sense of humor is just priceless!! No tears as Mariah just doesn't do it for me but I did get goose bumps when Webster was reunited with his Mummy!!!

xo Steph

Tania said...

Oh crikey! I take it all back, it's a beautiful song - really. And because I'm quivering in my shoes, because I REALLY know you NEVER forget, I'll go and learn to play it on my daughter's recorder and sort a violin accompaniment. OK?

tyroga said...

hahaha for the edit... but Macca is right, it had to come from somewhere, funny you should have that song on hand in your music library.

And I'm not concerned about possible consequences. Anything from one as ingenious in craft as Ms Black Cardigan would be wonderful. I'm sure Mark wears his Barbie boxer shorts with pride (but not AT Pride).

Thea said...

Thanks a lot, Nikki! I nearly peed myself watching this - with laughter.

Gina said...

Choking, positively choking with the emotion of it all. No, wait... that was a chicken bone.

Lauren said...

Oh Webster! You are my HERO!

m.e (Cathie) said...

Nikki..I loved the song! (please don't get mad)
hehe x

clare's craftroom said...

What ! You have no consideration whatsoever for my weak bladder . Too much laughing is dangerous for me but I did love it !

truj said...

I agree with tyroga ... where did you get the song from?

Hmmm, bought the single, original album, best of, or... is it from one of the many compilation albums this song (I'm sure) features on????

Jo James said...

*sniff*sniff* hehe.

Thanks! That was awesome :)

Sandrine said...

Oh wow...What a cool video clip!!!I am still laughing while typing!!You never stop surprising us with your great sence of life!:)Well done doc!Little mummy has the most beautiful hair;)

Sandra @ Pepperberry & Co. said...

Aw, little Webster! A hero to us all. I'm pretty sure he deserves one of Tania's cookie medals, as does his rescuer :-) Gorgeous video, and hey- I like that song. There's nothing as good as trashy pop music!!
