It was an immediate bond for this unique pair; Occy the dog and Biggie the duck, an extraordinary friendship that began when Occy was a tiny pup and Biggie a duckling. Though many would assume the dynamics between this duo would change drastically over time, to everyone’s astonishment, it did not. Even growing into an eighty-pound dog, Occy still plays as gently and kindly as he ever did with his best friend, a duck.
Inseparable, they spend their days napping, swimming, and eating together; where one goes the other one follows. Unaware of their differences, their bond is strong and their love for one another is unbreakable. Their hearts are full, their lives complete, and happiness is all they know.
These two inspire many of us around the world with their respect, love, and fondness for each other. It’s a great reminder and an amazing teachable moment for us humans, to discover how much greater our world could be if we embraced our neighbors with kindness, love, respect, and open arms. We can truly get along with all walks of life, no matter the size, color, or past. As Mahatma Gandhi said, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world” and it all starts with willing hearts and a leap of faith. Watch this video and get ready to be inspired!
