Jack Ward was recently diagnosed with vascular dementia. With his wife Jean living in a nursing home, Jack has been feeling really down and very lonely. But now he has something to finally smile about. He and his son have helped rear a recently-hatched duckling. Jack and the duckling, named "Ducky," are now inseparable pals.

Then, this man is one happy pappa. His daughter has returned home, bringing him one of the best gifts ever. She gave her father a Siberian Husky, the kind of dog he's always wanted. Dad's been heartbroken since his last dog Marley passed away, but now he has a new best buddy to look after.
