When George the dog lost his best friend Blackie a few months ago, he fell into a depression that just wouldn’t lift. The elderly pup spent his days overwhelmed with sadness, crying and moping around the house mourning the pal he’d loved for 12 years.
His owner, Jacquie Litton started to worry that George would never be the same… but all that changed with a new friend waddled into his life.
“We have no idea where this duck came from but he sure does love George and since the duck has arrived George has not cried one time,” Litton wrote on Facebook. “It is strange for a duck to just appear at our house and be attached to your dog and even more strangely the anniversary week of Blackie’s passing.”
“Since the duck has showed up, he’s been fine,” Litton told news station WKOW. “He’s not wanted in the house. He’s not whined. He’s not meeting you at the car, ya know, looking sad.”
