Can you imagine walking home and hearing a little chirp behind you? You turn around and it’s a little tiny fuzzy duck. This duck now thinks that you are their parent. What would you do? I know what I’d do… I’d scoop that fuzzball right up and carry him/her home. That’s exactly what Kylie Brown, a then-five-year-old Maine girl did when her now-pet duck Snowflack, trailed her on her way home. That’s what this video is all about – a wonderful friendship.
This girl knows her role very well. At the beginning of this video, she clearly says, “I’m his mom” There’s no room for discussion. Snowflake is her child and Kylie is his mother. Then there’s the first hilarious moment – Steve Hartman, the reporter, asked “How did you first find out..” probably intending to see when Snowflake first imprinted on her, but she interrupts, “That he was a duck?” Well, there went the next few questions, since Hartman couldn’t stop laughing at that. It’s OK – I was roaring with laughter at home.
Snowflake is now a full-fledged member of the family. Heck, he’s wearing a DIAPER when he’s walking around the house. That’s something I’ve never seen before. He goes everywhere with them, to the beach in summer, sledding in the winter. These two have an incredible bond. There’s even one photo of Kylie sleeping with her arms around Snowflake’s neck, who is also sleeping. I turned into a giant puddle of goo right then and there.
It will be fun to see any follow-up videos in the future. Another hilarious moment is when Hartman says to her, “You know… he’s going to grow up and go to college…” and Kylie gives him this befuddled look and says, “Wha?” You have to watch it. After I saw this, I wanted to get a duck for a pet too, but then I realized that A) I’m allergic to feathers and B) I have two cats. Yeah, I’ll live vicariously through this video…
Who stole the show here – Kylie or Snowflake? I think it’s a tie. We’d love to hear your thoughts on this in the comments section. Also, please “Like” us on Facebook.
