ATLANTIC BEACH, N.C. (WITN) An unlikely pair are turning heads on the North Carolina coast.
Occy the dog and Biggie the duck have been friends since one was a tiny and the other just a duckling.
“You’ll see them napping together, they’ll eat grass together, they’ll swim together,” says owner Frances Marsh. “They do everything together, hang out in the pool, eat together.”
Marsh says the friendship began about three years ago.
The pair love playing behind Marsh’s surf shop in Atlantic Beach and have become quite the popular duo.
“Most of the time when people see them playing they’ll pass by here on their boats and they’ll stop and take a picture or video,” Marsh says. “I’m so used to it I don’t realize its odd, but apparently it is.”
