Duck, Duck, Dog! Mallard Chases Basset Hound Puppy Around Ohio Backyard

A basset hound puppy known as Bes was captured playing tag with her duck friend Donald in their Oberlin, Ohio, backyard on May 30.

Tammy Tunison, who recorded the footage, says she “could see Donald thinking about his strategy on how to catch her, or cut her off by going the opposite direction.” After the chase, the two went their separate ways.

With her guard down, the puppy heads into the barn for a snack break, but Donald is ready for round two. The sneaky duck pops into the barn and playfully attacks Bes!

Tammy says the unlikely pair have “the craziest relationship.”
