Friendships know no boundaries. It comes in all sizes and shapes. This particular friend duo set the best example for such a friendship. Meet Barclay, the Golden Retriever and his best friend, a four-year-old Pekin duck Rudy, who prove that looks do not matter in friendships.

It all started when Barclay discovered just how tasty the stolen duck chow is. Rudy, however, being the alpha duck of his group, would chase Barclay away from it. But soon the golden retriever became such a frequent visitor that it only took them a little time to become friends. As the owner, Pam Ishiguro explained to Daily Mail: “When they are together, somebody is always chasing or jumping on someone else, but when they are apart, they’re always calling for each other.”

The two best friends have a two-way friendship where each gets something from it. For example: “[Barclay] likes to drink their bath water and, if he happens to be stealthy enough, he loves to sniff a little duck butt.” And as for Rudy, he’s become a fan of dog climbing: “Now Rudy has to ‘claim’ Barclay every once in a while by climbing on top of him. Barclay doesn’t seem to mind terribly because that gives him the opportunity to sniff Rudy’s butt – win-win!”

And they have come up with the perfect way to solve their issues as well. They seem to solve their disputes with cuddling and playing together: “Rudy and Barclay need each other – I think that’s why they have such a strong bond, they’re like the oddballs on the playground. No one else will play with them, so lucky for them, they found each other.” (h/t)
