Ducks love to swim in the water every chance they get, but Lorenz is not like a regular duck. Lorenz is a duck who prefers surfing on his doggy brother’s back.
Lorenz and Helios’ human mom, Geneviève Karlsson, recalled that Lorenz was only a couple of days old when he first came into their lives. Geneviève shared how affectionate Lorenz was towards her, and she was glad that the duckling immediately became best of friends with her pet dog, Helios.
This duck hates the water — except when he's riding on his favorite dog's head ???

Geneviève thought that Lorenz riding Helios’ back would only happen once, but it was not the case at all. Lorenz will only get in the water if Helios gets in first and gets to ride on his back.
Geneviève believes that Helios’ love of water and Lorenz’s dislike of it is how the two animals formed a bond. Geneviève shared that Lorenz would climb on Helios’ back, and often looked like he is steering the dog because of how he moves his head while being on top of Helios.
Geneviève recalled that the first time she saw her two pets swimming together was too funny. She knew that she had to share it with other people, so she decided to take a video of Lorenz and Helios swimming together in the lake.
Lorenz certainly would not dare swim in the lake without Helios. Lorenz only goes in the water if Helios does it first, and Lorenz follows him everywhere his doggy best friend swims.
Geneviève shared as soon as she throws the stick into the lake, Helios would immediately run to pick it up. Lorenz, on the other hand, would try his best to swim faster so that he could catch up with Helios because he wants to climb Helios’ back so they could go back together to the lakeside.
