There was something about his waddle...

Once upon a time in downtown Los Angeles, a goose fell in love with a local retiree. The goose, a Toulouse named Maria, spotted Dominick, a retired salesman, during one of his morning walks around Echo Park Lake, and knew he was the one she had been waiting to waddle beside for life.

A CBS News report from a couple years ago resurfaced on YouTube Wednesday thanks to a popular vlogger, and gained attention from the web. The video documents Maria and Dominick's real-life love story, a unique friendship and pseudo romance that has become, what one woman calls, "the talk of the park."

Maria, a modern goose, made the first move. In fact, Dominick didn't even have to flirt or buy her a breadcrumb to snag her attention. Maria just started following/stalking him as he strolled around the pond until he finally took notice.

Now, the two meet regularly for dates. While other geese play in the water or beg by the picnic tables, Maria stands on the sidewalk every day waiting for Dominick to arrive on his scooter. When he gets there, they walk around the lake together, catch up, and bask in the sun.


Maria evidently would like to go home with Dominick, so he sometimes has to sit on a bench and read to her until she falls asleep, then he sneaks away.

1. Maria doesn't care for rivals either.
