An abandoned duckling whose mother was killed by a fox has been given a new lease of life after being “adopted” by a LABRADOR. See MASONS story MNFREINDS (sic); Dennis the baby duck was left for dead when its mother was mauled by a vixen. The bird, which was less than a week old, would have died in the wild had it not been taken in by four-year-old Fred and his owner Jeremy Goldsmith, 44. Amazingly the Labrador took an immediate shine to the duckling and began to clean the muddy duck with its tongue.
