Friendship knows no limits. We have often seen that friends come in all shapes and sizes. This 5-year-old girl from Maine found a best friend in a duck. She believes that she is the little duck’s mom! How cute is that? Steve Hartman went “On the Road” to meet this adorable duo. Wait till you see their story!
Since the first day Kylie met Snowflake, they formed an unbreakable bond. She made an impression on the tiny duckling and he started following her around everywhere! Ducklings imprint on the first duck they see when they hatch, which is usually their mother. If something happens to the mother, or she is not around for some reason when they hatch, they are likely to imprint on another animal, or in this case, a human.
That’s what happened when this little duckling met Kylie, but it seems they imprinted on each other, not just the duck to Kylie. Kylie wanted to be with the duck as much as he wanted to be with her. When Kylie’s parents found out about the pair, they allowed her to keep the little guy as a pet.
Kylie looks out for Snowflake and she even brings him to her slumber parties! What a beautiful bond these two have, and what a wonderful little girl to care for this duck who loves her so much. I hope they have many happy years together.
