It seems that Fred, the labrador retriever, has made a new buddy. Dennis, the baby duck, was left behind when his mother was mauled by a fox and killed. Fred, and his owner Jeremy, took the duckling in, and Fred made friends. The dog helped clean up Dennis the duck, and the two are great friends now.
They snuggle at night, Dennis rides on Fred, and they swim together. (Dennis is more graceful than Fred according to Jeremy!) Jeremy says that Fred is like a mother to Dennis - or maybe more like a "stay at home dad".

Have you ever had one of your pets adopt another animal of another species? I think that Henry would likely try it given a chance. He's so friendly to other critters. (I'm not sure he knows he is a kitty!)
