Bruce & Hobbes Podcast: Jamie & Jonny Toschi & Nibbles, Inspirational Youth
This week, Bruce & Hobbes are joined by: Jamie & Jonny (Toschi) & Nibbles - Inspirational Youth, (his Mom) & his “best buddy” Nibbles
In the Spring of 2013, Jonny & his family met “Daisy,” a female Rouen duckling. An instant friendship was created, and he took her almost everywhere. For the most part, where Jonny went, Daisy went too.
When Daisy was about 4 weeks old, she started having seizures, and the family thought Daisy wouldn’t live. Jonny was heartbroken, but eventually, she recovered and the two friends became even closer. Daisy became a part of the family, and although she continued to have seizures, they slowed down, and became less frequent as she grew. Daisy had fun, and lots of love.
Jonny’s family didn’t know if Daisy would have ducklings, but one day, Daisy met Daffy, a Rouen drake – and it was LOVE at first sight! Jonny & his family were hopeful, and Daisy laid 10 eggs, which they incubated. Out of the 10 eggs, seven hatched – and Nibbles was the last egg Daisy laid apart from the others. Nibbles was actually born a month after his brothers & sisters, and actually hatched in Jonny’s hand, and an instant friendship was born. Sadly, one month after Nibbles was born, Daisy died, leaving Jonny devastated. He took hold of his new friend Nibbles, & never let go. The two have been best friends from the start, and Nibbles forged an everlasting bond with Jonny, & helps him with some of the challenges he faces, like ADHD, & OCD.
Jonny, on the other hand, is Nibbles’ caretaker, and the two would be lost without each other. Seeing as Nibbles prefers the company of humans, and sees himself as one, the relationship between the two is truly a special bond!

How Jonny & Nibbles met
How Jonny moved on from the loss of one friend, and made another
How Jonny’s friendship with Nibble grew deeper
What the two friends do together
How Nibbles helps Jonny with some of the challenges he faces, from ADHD and OCD

That was fun!
Really enjoyed listening to your show. Informative and relaxed, but not overly "cute." Thank you. I was aware of Sniff & Barkens, so I was happy to hear the interview with their Creative Director, Ms. Trasoff.
