Proud duck owner Pam Ishiguro has a flock of seven ducks but her four-year-old Pekin duck Rudy and her golden retriever Barclay have formed the strongest bond.
As the Christmas season revs up, the duo are getting into the spirit with Christmas movies, tasty treats and presents that are just asking to be torn apart.
Pam said: “For Christmas, Barclay received several fun chew toys and of course, his favourite gift of all time...steak!
“We always have to cut his steak into small, bite-sized pieces so he won’t swallow the entire piece of meat at once!
“Rudy received his favourite gift of live, wiggly mealworms. He especially loves having them in a big bowl of lettuce and pea soup!”
The fluffy pair love the festive season as all the extra people mean that they get lots of extra attention, belly rubs and kisses.
Pam said: “For their special Christmas treat, we make snacks and watch their favourite Christmas movie, The Polar Express, together.
“When playing together, Rudy is always in charge. He likes flinging things and waiting for Barclay to retrieve them.”
While Barclay has infinite patience, his buddy loves to test it in between cuddles and nibbles.
She said: “Sometimes Rudy will get on Barclay’s nerves especially, when food is involved.
“Rudy always gets the first bite and many times, Barclay gets impatient and has to push his way in to get a bite.
“We’re lucky that Barclay is well-mannered and patient!”
