This labrador raised nine orphaned ducklings, and now he’s a big deal on the Internet.

There are good things about every kind of dog, but some breeds just seem to be full of love. Labrador Retrievers are like this, and if you have ever owned one, you know how sweet and caring they can be. If you’ve never met a Labrador before, you might be surprised by what this 10-year-old lab from Mountfitchet Castle in Stansted, UK, just did. If you’ve ever had a lab, you’ll know in your heart that this is what your lab would have done. I’m going to tell you about Fred. He is a Labrador retriever who recently became a father and got a lot of attention on the Internet.

He didn’t have any more labradors, but he did take in nine ducklings who didn’t have a family. Their mother left them last week and didn’t come back, so they were on their own. The people who worked at the Castle were worried about them, but Fred took care of them himself. These nine ducklings ride on Fred’s back and swim in the moat while he watches over them. They also sleep with Fred on the lawn when they have the chance. The person who cares for Fred said, “They love him so much that he has decided to stay home and take care of the nine ducklings.” Hopes are that Fred will keep giving this kind of care for a few more weeks. By then, the ducks will be old enough to live on their own on the grounds of the Castle.

When you see it, you’ll understand why the video in this article has gone viral. Fred is now the proud dad of nine ducklings left without parents. This video will make you happy and warm your heart:
