Duck on a Rock

This is Jake. He frequents the pond outside our apartment building. We watch him every morning and evening as he perches majestically on this rock. We think he is suffering from a broken heart. There used to be three ducks. The other two left, and have not returned. Jake appears to be waiting and watching every day for his true love to return. We surmise she was kidnapped and is trying to return to him now, and so he waits, patiently and forlornly...

These are our two geese, who also frequent our pond. As you can see, they have a happy union and find great joy in each others companionship. We're searching for the perfect names for them. We've tried Romeo and Juliet, David and Jezebell, Lucy and Ricky, Ethel and Fred, Antony and Cleopatra, Scarlett and Rhett, but they just don't quite fit. Any suggestions?

You are a nut! You have too much time on your hands. Oh wait... NO YOU DONT!!! I do feel for poor Jake now though. Poor guy.
