Preston - Stranger #24

I had an interesting lunch today. I'm still on half days so I stopped at our "trendy" downtown market to grab a bite and sit out in the courtyard to eat. A man was about to be interviewed by local media about the Mallard ducking that has imprinted on his terrier. A fox got the mother so this man took the remaining 4 eggs home. Two hatched and this little guy is the sole survivor. He's a week old today. As soon as it hatched the dog licked it clean and has been mothering it ever since. The Middle East could learn about getting along with one's enemies from this unlikely couple.
