Golden Retriever and Duck are Best of Friends

I came across this video on Facebook this morning, so I did a little research, and found this story from WITN from back in July of 2014.

When Occy, the golden retriever was just a puppy, he befriended “Biggie” the duck, who was also a baby at the time.  Biggie and Occy hit it off so well, Biggie decided that he would rather be a dog, and chose not to live with the other babies who lived nearby.

The unlikely duo are inseperable.  They swim together, eat grass together, play together, and even eat together.  Biggie refuses to eat duck food, and eats out of the dog bowl and water dish!

The pair live in Atlantic Beach NC together at Mash’s Surf Shop and their owner Frances says people often go by on their boats and take pictures and videos of the pair..

This is the video I found on Facebook this morning, it’s been edited and put to music, and it’s kinda cute!

Hopefully they are still doing well. I found this photo on their Facebook page from August 2015 on National Dog Day.
