This duck's name is Buttercup. She had an inverted foot that had to be removed. Luckily, her owner designed a prosthetic foot to help her walk! Buttercup became so popular in Memphis that she was recently dubbed an "honorary duck" in the Peabody Hotel. You can see her being led by her favorite toy! For those of you who aren't familiar with the Peabody Hotel: For the past 80 years "Peabody Ducks" have graced the hotel fountain, making appearances for guests daily.
