    Hello! Just wanted to introduce you guys to my little guy Token, a Cayuga drake. He came into our lives on the most random day, we were spending our afternoon at a swap meet and saw a bird/fowl stand, checked it out, thought the ducklings were the cutest thing! Left the stand, my boyfriend knew i was gonna want one, sure enough I couldn't stop thinking of him the rest of the walk, he was the only black one in the group so he stood out to me. So we went back to get him![​IMG]We brought him home and introduced him to my bf's pitbull, Diesel; Diesel was too happy at first, wanted to play with him, pounce on him, sniff him but we taught him that Token was still a baby :)

    Now they are inseparable! Since Token is an only drake, Diesel is his buddy, he can't stand being away from him. You guys know how you can tell their different calls? Like when he's happy he has a little chirp sound and when he's scared or mad he loudly quacks kinda? Well as soon as Diesel walks into the room his chirp comes on, as soon as he walks out the quack comes out and Diesel comes running right back. It's adorable! He always takes care of Token, making sure he isn't alone, sharing his food, water, and even toys. They are the perfect pair[​IMG]

    [​IMG]. It's always wonderful to hear about people's dogs getting along with their birds.

    That's incredibly cute. I love that your dog recognizes the 'come back!' quack too.

    They are so cute together! We have pit mix and four ducks. My ducks are not very nice to the dog.

    That is so adorable! This reminds me of my duck and cat. My drake fell in love with my cat and would follow her everywhere. He would run to her whenever he saw her and he would be so beside himself with happiness that he would tremble.

    Things may change when Token gets to sexual age, they can get an attitude that Diesel may not find to appealing. Just a warning.
