Dog and duck protect one another

We know dog is man's best friend, but is the feeling mutual? One MidSouth canine has found a feathered friend he can't live without. Owner Marshall Lofton told Action News 5, Lucky the duck and Chico the dog have been inseparable ever since Lofton brought Lucky home from the pet store two years ago.

"They sleep together, they play together, they eat together," Lofton said.

True friends of a feather, Chico is Lucky's big brother and protector.

"If a strange dog comes in the yard, the dog will protect duck," Lofton said. Lofton says Lucky thinks he's a dog and Chico thinks he's a duck.
