This Dog And Duck Duo’s Adorable Friendship Will Melt Your Heart
If it’s hard for you to imagine a little duckling and a huge German Shepard being completely smitten with one another, you aren’t alone. However, this young photographer has been hard at work capturing a beautiful friendship between her duck and dog, who are nearly inseparable. Though they’re an unlikely pair of best friends, they’re pretty dang adorable!
A Strange Companionship
It’s hard to imagine anyone casually keeping a duck as a pet, especially if they own a massive canine as well. However, that’s exactly what Natacha, an 18-year-old photographer from France, decided to do. While this may sound like a recipe for disaster, it’s been proven time and time again that different species can become incredible companions for one another. And Natacha’s duck and dog are no different.
Immediately In Love
When Natacha first adopted her Indian Runner duck, Lemony, she wasn’t hesitant to let the sweet bird snuggle up with her canine. She clearly trusted her female German Shepard, Vendetta, to be sweet and nurturing towards the duckling. And although birds are often scared of dogs, Lemony was immediately smitten with Vendetta. The little duckling began to trail behind the pup wherever she ventured to.
An Unlikely Pair Of Pals
Lemony was braver than Natacha anticipated, and she was surprised at how quickly the duckling clung to Vendetta’s side. Still, Vendetta immediately began to return the same love to Lemony that they had provided for her. Natacha saw their friendship blooming and soon began to incorporate Lemony into some of her favorite activities with Vendetta. Before long, Lemony soon became inclined towards bigger and better adventures with her owner and canine big sibling!
Their Adorable Adventures
While Natacha originally only took Lemony along to the lake with her and Vendetta, the duo soon became seemingly inseparable. She seemed to recognize that they were happiest together, and began to bring along Lemony on even more of their trips together. From walks through the city to hikes through the woods, Lemony and Vendetta have developed a flair for adventure, and Natacha’s gorgeous photographs have captured every precious moment between the two.
Promoting The Preciousness Of Ducks
Natacha has shared Vendetta and Lemony’s travels together with the world on her Instagram account, @xuamina_photographie. But ultimately, Natacha doesn’t just photograph her precious pair of pets to gain views online. She truly hopes that she can change society’s perception on ducks as more than a meal, “but as the sensitive animals they are.” From the looks of these photographs, plenty of people are hopefully recognizing the loving, friendly, and sweet nature of ducks like Lemony.
