If you’re having a bad day, here’s a serious pick me up. A resident dog at the Mountfichet Castle in the UK "adopted" nine orphaned ducklings.

Fred, the 10-year-old Labrador, took the ducklings under his paw when they became orphaned last week. 

The castle says the ducklings’ mom disappeared and a staff member found them wandering the castle grounds.

The ducklings have made themselves comfortable with Fred as he’s been keeping an eye on them since. 

The Mountfitchet Castle posted a video to their Facebook page of the newfound family enjoying some sun.
