Duckling becomes dog’s friend
    2018-08-06  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A TINY duckling was the only one of his abandoned nest to survive, but has quickly made an unlikely friend — a family’s pet dog.

Brody, a 3-year-old golden retriever, and the unnamed duckling have been inseparable since it hatched.

“They share their meals, play, and swim and take naps,” the dog’s owner, Cindy Bentsen of Oceanside, New York, told InsideEdition.com. “He is very protective of the duck.”

She explained it all started when her 12-year-old son Tommy rescued an abandoned nest near the canal in their backyard.

After doing a little research, they decided to help them hatch.

“He ordered an incubator and began the process,” Bentsen explained. “Twenty-eight days later, we successfully hatched four ducklings. Unfortunately, only one survived.”

They consulted local wildlife experts, who said it was best to release the remaining duckling to the wild. The duckling, however, had other plans.

“We live on a canal so we are hoping that she will make some friends,” she said. “[The duckling] became so attached to our dog Brody, she keeps on returning.”
