Interspecies relationships aren’t just about battling for survival. At times creatures form the most abnormal friendship, and this story is proof that fur and feathers can get along pretty well.
When Patrick and Kirsten Riley of Strout from Minnesota decided to adopt Max, he was 5-year-old. The couple also own another husky, Sasha and the duo quickly became best friends. Be that as it may, Sasha’s time ran out and she passed away, opening a void of loneliness in Max’s heart. A void that was soon filled by a duck.
After Patrick and Kirsten embraced Quackers, Max instantly liked him. “Max would sit by his pen constantly, and they only sort of bonded that way,” Patrick told WCCO-TV. “After we let him out, they never left each other’s side.”
“They sleep together, they eat together, they drink together, they go for walks together,” Kirsten added. “Everything is together.” “Everything is as one.” Most of the time the pair is hanging out along Highway 28. Their bond is so delightful, individuals even stop their vehicles to appreciate it.
Strout is just 25-inhabitants big, so the match has turned out to be notable in the area. “Sometimes on my way home, I really trust they’re out so they can make my day better,” neighbor Alisa Godejahn said.
“We see people stopping over to watch them every day. The traffic gets blocked over there because people taking lots of pictures with them.” Watch the unlikely duo, bellow!
