Today the Department of Unexpected Interspecies Friendship is celebrating the bond between a dog named Max and a duck named Quackers. Max is a senior husky, 12-years-old, while Quackers is 4, and the two of them are inseparable.
The pair live in Strout, MN with Patrick and Kirsten Riley, who adopted Max back when he was 5-years-old. Max’s first BFF was a fellow huskie named Sasha. After Sasha passed away, Max was without a fellow animal friend until Quackers arrived on the scene.
When Patrick and Kirsten adopted Quackers, Max immediately took a liking to him. “Max would sit next to his pen all the time, and they just kind 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.”
