A British couple says that the duck that they adopted has been imitating the dogs that it lives with amusing the entire town.
Steph and Tony Tufft from the Charminster area of Bournemouth, England, said they adopted Essy the duck when she was only 8 weeks old and the waterfowl chose the couple's two dogs as role models, The Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday.
"We are known throughout Charminster. People come out of bars to see her. They love it," Tony Tufft said. "She doesn't know she's a duck. She must think she's a dog. She goes up to other dogs. People can't understand it and the dogs are really confused as well."
"We even had to buy Essy her own lead, after getting strange looks from people who thought we were duck-napping," he said.
His wife said taking the duck for walks has become a spectator event for locals.
"It's as if Brad Pitt was walking on the lead, the amount of people that come out," she said.
I think that the duck should get it's own reality show. Perhaps judging dog competitions.
