Max was adopted by Patrick and Kirsten Riley of Strout, Minnesota, when he was around 5 years old. Sasha, another Husky in the family at the time, formed friends with the dog almost instantly.
Unfortunately, Sasha died, leaving a vacuum in Max’s heart, which he would soon fill with his new buddy. Max was ecstatic when his parents decided to adopt Quackers.
WCCO-TV quoted Patrick as saying:
“Max sat beside his pen all the time, and they simply sat there.” They were never separated from each other after we let him out.
The couple had lost a handful of pals when they brought Quackers. Max’s companionship provided comfort to the duck. It was fair to say that the feelings were reciprocal, and the two new friends would no longer be alone.
Kirsten, Max and Quackers’ mother, recalls:
“They sleep together, eat together, drink together, and go on road walks together.” They collaborate on everything.
The unique pair of pals liked to hang out along the roadway. Strout is a little town with only approximately 25 inhabitants, yet they are well-known there.
Alisa Godejahn, a family neighbor, added:
“On the walk home, I always hope they’re there because they’re too valuable to miss.” People frequently come to a halt there. Because of all the images they take of them, traffic gets stalled there at times.’
The two companions even share a garage bedroom, and it’s not unusual to hear webbed feet and jumping feet scampering around in the morning. It may even be accompanied with a squawk and a bark at times.
