|Daisy Duck (Fair Use)|
Having lost his black-lab buddy Blackie two years ago, George had experienced a deep depression. Then a strange thing occurred.
Just about two years to the date of Blackie’s passing, a duck suddenly plunked down on George’s front porch. There seemed to be an immediate affinity between dog and duck. In fact, George hasn’t whimpered once since the waterfowl’s arrival.
Although dogs are more likely to eat ducks than to befriend them, the two have been inseparable ever since. Why is this the case? Could the duck have been Blackie in the last life? Or are interspecies friendships far more prevalent than previously thought?
