I think animal buddy movies peaked in the '80s and '90s, 'Homeward Bound' and 'Milo and Otis' are great (I know, I know there's some controversy with Milo and Otis). It just seems like the new ones don't have the same integrity.

But that's okay because we have a real-life odd pairing to enjoy.

Wide Open Pets introduced us to 12-year-old Husky, Max and 4-year-old Duck, Quackers who are best friends.

Kristen Riley one of the 25 residents of Max and Quackers hometown, Strout, Minnesota said the pair do everything together... everything. "...they eat together, they drink together, they go for walks together down the road,".

Max had just lost his buddy, fellow Husky Sasha just before Quackers was born.

Now since they met when Quackers was a duckling it may be one of those he thinks Max is his mom situations, but I'm gonna stick with they are just buddies.

If these two can be friends, you can get along with that family member you don't care for this holiday weekend. I mean you are the same species and all.
