Transcript for A dog 'adopted' these ducklings after their mom disappeared
This is Fred, a 10-year-old Labrador, and full-time duck dad. When this quack-pack was found waddling around without their mother, Fred launched his own ducky day care. Now they follow him around everywhere he goes and they love to ride on his back. Happy ending to this tale of two species.
