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.
