Here's another long-necked duck (goose). A tell-tale sign is the white spot under the eye, marking the jaws. This goose is on a gift bag.
There is a game called "Duck, Duck, Goose." Everybody stands in a circle except for the individual determined to be "it."
The odd-man-out walks around the circle tapping each person sequentially and signifying completion of the tap by saying, "Duck."
At some point, instead of saying "Duck" he says "Goose". At that instant the individual tapped chases the tapper who runs around the circle and takes the place of the "Goose" (unless the goose catches him).
Joe Penner was a vaudeville comedian with a duck. His duck was nearly named "Goose".
Joe Penner's duck was named "Goo-Goo".
Quack, Quack!

I had a cat named Snowflake, a white cat. She liked mice enough that she raised a small herd of them so she wouldn't have to go to so much work to catch one when she had a hankering for a mouse.
Quack, Quack!
