"Everywhere I go, if I had to walk from here to home, that duck would be one inch off my heels."

She's not exactly "man's best friend", but this baby duck in Minnesota sure acts the part of a dog.

Four week old "Quackers" was rescued from a storm drain when she was just one-day old. Matt Thompson took her in and now she spends her days as an apprentice in his workshop and the unlikely pair is inseparable.

Matt says he's going to keep her until she learns to fly, but if she never flies away, he says he'll be glad to keep her around.
