TENNESSEE (WKOW) -- George the dog lost his best friend, Blackie the lab, two years ago this week and has been depressed ever since.
But this past Monday, his owner Jacquie Litton looked out her back window and noticed a stranger on the back porch: this duck who hasn't left George since. George spends all day by the duck. He lets the duck sleep on his bed, and even allows the duck to rest his bill on his leg.
The big white duck has brought peace to George who used to be very lonely.
"Since the duck has showed up, he's been fine," Litton said. "He's not wanted in the house. He's not whined. He's not meeting you at the car, ya know, looking sad."
There's been some adjustments in the home as duck droppings are appearing. But for Litton, as long as George is happy, it's all worth it.
"They're totally different species, and they've found company and comfort in each other."
Litton said they're going to have to upgrade the bird bath to a bigger tub.
