Some people have cats, some people have dogs, but Holly Mead of Butler County, Pennsylvania, has ducks.
Holly’s ducks are beloved members of her family, and one duck in particular named Gertrude has gained the fond attention of her internet followers. You see, Gertrude doesn’t look like a typical wild duck you’d see at your local park. She’s a crested Peking duck with an unusually large “crest” that looks more like a wig that George Washington might wear.
Gertrude’s unique look has gained her international fame. She’s graced magazine covers and advertisements, and because she’s a bit of a celebrity and has jobs lined up, she lives inside with the humans of the family.
Check out some of Gertrude’s best pictures below, and you’ll see why everyone wants to hire this fowl-mouthed model.
