Dog And Wild Duck Form The Most Adorable Unlikely Friendship

Meet McGee, the 6-year-old Golden Retriever and his pretty unusual best friend, the feisty duck living in the pond behind his house. The wild duck was all by himself until he met McGee and decided they became best friends.

The big dog McGee has a sweet heart, so he quickly gets familiar with his feathered friend. Although his new friend is a little clingy, he doesn’t seem to mind about that.

“He’s a wonderful friendly dog with not a mean bone in his body,” Evan Hastings, the owner of McGee said. “I think the duck just got lonely and started harassing McGee and then they became best buddies.”

The duck, nicknamed Daffy, hardly ever leaves McGee’s side. He spends his days swimming and sunbathing with the big dog. Heartwarming photos show the lovable duo cuddling up together, swimming, and happily playing together. McGee even shares his food with Daffy every morning and they eat from the same bowl.

“During the day, McGee will be laying in the grass and the duck will be laying on his back also,” Hastings said. “I think McGee gets annoyed after awhile because the duck is nonstop pecking at him for some reason.”

In the evenings, they spend hours swimming together. “When they swim together the duck is always trying to get on his back,” Hastings said. “Sometimes when he’s up there, he’ll hold his wings straight out — it’s hilarious.”

Daffy doesn’t like Hastings’ other dogs, especially when they try to join with him. “I have two beagle dogs and let them loose in the evenings and the duck actually chases them back to the kennel,” Hastings said. “For some reason, the duck doesn’t want the beagles around McGee — maybe so he can have him all to himself.”
