COMM: Orange County-based mum Pam
is owner to a rather eclectic group of pets.
But it’sher dog Barclay and pet duck Rudy who have
formed a close, but rather unexpected bond. PAM:
When the ducks first arrived, Barclay
didn’t care about them at all.
But thatall changed once he realised they have food,
and their food is delicious.
Barclay loves stealing the ducks’ food.
In fact, he just loves food,
he stole my lunch earlier. COMM:
Since joining their home in 2013, the
pair formed a mutually beneficial relationship. PAM:
Barclay loves sniffing Rudy’s butt
and Rudy wants to roll Barclay.
It’s a symbiotic relationship. PAM:
Rudy is definitely the Alpha duck. He
is our official toe biter if anyone gets tooclose.
We have a sign that says,
“Beware of attack duck”.
And the other ducks know Barclay is his best friend.
anyone else gets too close, they better watch out.
Rudy will attack without warning. COMM:
Unluckily for Pam’s other dog Izzy,
Rudy is not so accommodating to all the family’s canines. PAM:
Izzy stalked the ducks when they were babies,
but now that the ducks are bigger than Izzy,
let’s just say payback is sweet,
if you’re a duck. PAM:
Rudy and Barclay need each other.
I think that’s why they have such a strong bond.
They are like the oddballs on the playground.
No one else will play with them.
So, lucky for them, they found each other.
