Over on Instagram, eight ducks and two dogs are trying to be the best of friends. With well over 208,000 followers, it looks like they might be succeeding.
In particular, a four-year-old Pekin duck named Rudy is best pals with his dog friend, a Golden Retriever named Barclay.

Their mom lives in Orange County, California, and she says, “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.”
The duck seems to be fearless, and the pooch seems to treat his feathered friend like one of his littermates.
When Barclay wants to take a nap, along comes Rudy to pester him as brothers often do. It isn’t long before Rudy is standing on the dog’s back trying to start some shenanigans.
Actions speak louder than words, so watch this dynamic duo in the fun video below.
