A feisty duck has chosen a pretty unusual best friend – a loving golden retriever. Proud duck owner Pam Ishiguro has a flock of seven ducks but her four-year-old Pekin duck Rudy and golden retriever Barclay have formed the strongest bond.
The Orange County-based mum said: “The animals are much like my two boys – they have a love-hate relationship.
When they are together, somebody is always chasing or jumping on someone else, but when they are apart, they’re always calling for each other.”
But the dog and duck pairing was not always so friendly. At first Rudy enjoyed chasing Barclay away whenever he tried to approach any of the ducks in the group.
