an abandoned, one week old duckling, whose mother was killed by a fox in bristol, england, was found by a labrador named fred. the ducklling, who has since been named dennis, “was quite frail and he clearly would not have survived another day on his own,” explains jeremy goldsmith, fred’s owner.
but he adds,”fred, who has always been extremely loving, went straight up to the duckling and began to lick the little bird clean. since then, dennis has not stopped following him around. dennis snuggles up to fred at night for warmth, he will clamber up on top of him and they even go swimming together.”
