If we were a duck and this big, hairy beast was in our face, we don’t think we’d hang around long.
That’s why the bird in this video deserves just credit for sticking around for a playdate with an imposing German shepherd, who dances to and fro like he’s got ants in his pants.
The dog is named Duke and he encountered the duck while on a walk, the video’s caption explains. The mallard holds its own, pecking near the pup’s feet and trying to take aim at those floppy paws (anyone who has ever called a duck dumb clearly hasn’t met this one).
The dog + heart + duck emoji at the end really says it best: When can these two crazy kids meet up again?
