Dog Brothers Instantly Bond with and Protect Their Duckling Family Members

When dog brothers Pikelet and Patty Cakes first met their new duck siblings, they instantly fell in love. The pups’ humans had agreed to foster the ducks, adopted them from rescue organization Wollongong Animal Rescue Network, and ended up naming them Penguin and Popinjay. When the feathered duo were introduced to both Pikelet and Patty Cakes, the feeling was mutual and they immediately loved them right back. Now, both canines spend their days carefully protecting the fragile baby ducks as they work to keep them comfortable.

To keep up with this absolutely adorable family, you can follow them on the Life of Pikelet Facebook or Instagram.
