A feisty duck has chosen a pretty unusual best friend - a loving golden retriever. Proud duck owner Pam Ishiguro has a flock of seven ducks but her four-year-old Pekin duck Rudy and golden retriever Barclay have formed the strongest bond.
Signed “Charles Rudy 1935,” the rabbits stand 23 inches tall each and are set on bases measuring 11½ by 11¾ inches. They have a wonderful, mossy aged surface. The provenance for these rabbits is from a Newport, R.I., estate. Not surprisingly, an identical pair is at the teahouse at Newport’s once-grandest Victorian mansion along Bellevue Avenue, Chateau-sur-Mer, the former home of the Wetmore family.
