It Was a Long Time Ago
These guys weren't close at the beginning. Just the opposite, they were like life enemies and Rudy, the duck, was furious each time he saw Barclay getting close to the duck coop. For a very long time, Barclay was only able to follow the ducks from a distance.

Keeping the Food Safe
The main reason these animals were not in love was a simple task to keep the food safe. Sometimes, Barclay was in a mood to steal ducks' food, and thus Rudy decided to keep him at distance. Like all big fellows who are in charge of keeping others safe, he was very aggressive in the moments the dog came a bit closer than it was allowed.

The Borders Between Opponents
Both of them were calm only when they were not in direct contact and this is why the glass door was the best solution to keep them from fighting. However, these are the pictures from the pastime. Now, everything is different.

It is strange how this story got an entirely different course, but miracles can happen sometimes. Although every time Barclay came close to steal the food or sniff other ducks, Rudy would react loudly and make him go, once the dog decided not to be scared anymore. That was something the duck didn't expect, and somehow from that moment everything has changed, and the animals became closer.

Welcome to the Group
The animals started to show interest in each other and somehow became friends after a long time, Rudy even allowed Barkley to get closer to the other ducks. The proud owner of this duo ,Pam Ishiguro, couldn't believe how everything was changing. Now they all live together in Orange County, California.

Every time Rudy wants to show love, he cleans Barclay's fur. That is something like a ritual between these animals. It looks like the dog enjoys it because nobody likes having bugs and parasites. Through this informal process, these guys became best buddies.

The Type of Relation
As their mom, Ishiguro, said – her pets have a special relationship now, and they are acting similarly like her sons. Somehow, they play the game of love and hate, and everything looks perfect. The best thing for both of them is that they are happy now, as they can spend time together.

The Real Buddies
This duo is unique, they almost look weird as it is not typical to see ducks and dogs hanging around. You have to admit they are cute, almost like angels, aren't they? This friendship looks like those that have a particular note, something we cannot easily explain but see in a large number of animals.

The Nap Time
Once the nap time is close, we can be sure that Rudy, a family toe biter will stay close to Barclay. From the moment they became close, they couldn't live separately. They are looking for each other all the time and we hope this beautiful and strange friendship will last forever.
