COMM: Orange County-based mum Pam is owner to a rather eclectic group of pets. But it’s
her dog Barclay and pet duck Rudy who have formed a close, but rather unexpected bond. PAM: When the ducks first arrived, Barclay didn’t care about them at all. But that
all changed once he realised they have food, and their food is delicious. Barclay loves
stealing the ducks’ food. In fact, he just loves food, he stole my lunch earlier. COMM: Since joining their home in 2013, the pair formed a mutually beneficial relationship. PAM: Barclay loves sniffing Rudy’s butt and Rudy wants to roll Barclay. It’s a symbiotic
relationship. PAM: Rudy is definitely the Alpha duck. He is our official toe biter if anyone gets too
close. We have a sign that says, “Beware of attack duck”. Enough said! And the other
ducks know Barclay is his best friend. If anyone else gets too close, they better watch
out. Rudy will attack without warning. COMM: Unluckily for Pam’s other dog Izzy, Rudy is not so accommodating to all the family’s
canines. PAM: Izzy stalked the ducks when they were babies, but now that the ducks are bigger
than Izzy, let’s just say payback is sweet, if you’re a duck. PAM: Rudy and Barclay need each other. I think that’s why they have such a strong bond.
They are like the oddballs on the playground. No one else will play with them. So, lucky
for them, they found each other.
