Sometimes, animals form the most unusual friendships, and this is the fluffy story of one
Max the dog was only 5 years old when he was adopted by Patrick and Kirsten Riley from Strout Minnesota.
Max got on very well with the family’s other dog at the time, a husky named Sasha.
Unfortunately, Sasha passed away, leaving a big lonely void in Max’s heart, that was soon filled by Quackers, the duck.
The couple then adopted Quackers, an adorable little duck with who Max struck an immediate friendship.
“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.” Most of the time the pair is hanging out along Highway 28. Their bond is so beautiful, people even stop their cars to appreciate it.
The town of Strout is home to only 25 residents, and therefore the dynamic duo, that is Max and Quackers are pretty well-known in the area.
“Sometimes on my way home, I actually hope they’re out there because they’re just too precious to look at,” neighbor Alisa Godejahn said.
“We see people stopping over there all the time. The traffic gets clogged up over there sometimes because of all the pictures getting taken.”
