The mama duck unfortunately died after the young ducklings were born. The mama duck’s best friend, a white Akita dog, decided to take over the role of a mother. The ducklings have bonded with the dog and they have become inseparable ever since.
Mom and baby, so sweet. She keeps it close to her front legs, Her breasts are behing her fron legs. It's the safest place for a baby elephant for mom to protect it. They're such loving mothers. It's a joy to just watch them.
