Cute or Sad? #1

You be the judge—to me, this entry falls into the Sad category—cause you know those teeny ducklings are like, WTF?

Looks like the dog is being attacked and overrun by fluffy little chicks. Someone help him!

Haha, that's so cool, I wish I had a squad of baby ducks :D

 |  Dec 13, 2005 at 08:04 PM

Ok.. now I want cute little ducklings to follow my dog around, like that. TOTALLY ADORABLE!

 |  Dec 14, 2005 at 06:02 PM

It's sad, because where is the motherduck?!

 |  Dec 15, 2005 at 01:40 PM

The dog probably ate the mother duck

 |  Dec 15, 2005 at 04:14 PM

no not sad. totally Cuuuuute!

 |  Dec 16, 2005 at 11:53 AM

I wonder if the mother duck ran away because that is a lot of babies, y'all! Don't they usually only have 4 or 5?

I still vote CUTE, though, since everybody seems healthy and happy.

Do you think this is sad because the dog woke up from some drunken misadventure with a duck, only to find himself covered with her little chicks who hatched and imprinted on him and now he must pay for his little indiscretion for the rest of his life while the poor innocents can't understand why daddy doesn't love them and how cute and good do they have to be in order to be worthy of his love?

its sad cos er-hello! chicks should stick with their mutha,no chase a dog! idiots

 |  Dec 20, 2005 at 07:15 AM

maybe the mother died due to any other reason? accident? the dog accepts his role being the new mother. thats definitely cute

 |  Dec 20, 2005 at 02:53 PM

Actually, this is from an experiment we learned about in my psych class. The guy is Karl Lorenz, and he was demonstrating imprinting, which is when an animal becomes attached to the first animal it sees after it is born.

Cute, not sad. I've had ducks, raised ducklings, and as long as there's someone feeding them, the dog will make a fine mother.

 |  Dec 23, 2005 at 11:01 AM

First it's sad because the ducklings should be with their natural mother, but then it's cute because the dog has become their foster mother for whatever reason, and at least didn't eat them!

This is the most adorable picture ever!!!!! You are so lucky to have an adorable duck and a ton of cute little ducks. They must be fun to have around. I wish that I was that dog!!!!

Are you aware that children die everyday because of your cruel, addicitng, enviormentally un-safe practices? Are you aware?

Aww I'm just playing with you, I got my friend light up duck lamps from Target for her birthday..maybe they were cute? ;-)

 |  Jan 12, 2006 at 06:21 PM

It is sad cause those ducks are probably being raised to be dinner, that's why there's so many and there's no momma. It's cute cause, come on? Who doesn't want that many yellow fuzzies follwing them around?

 |  Jan 23, 2006 at 02:46 PM

Wow. Its like three things in one.

Cute, funny, and sad.

 |  Jan 26, 2006 at 09:00 PM

the cheikens following the dog thats funny and strange

 |  Feb 01, 2006 at 03:56 PM

The god is going to slam down on this horrid interspecies mix.

 |  Feb 02, 2006 at 10:03 PM

why do cute things become so delicious???

 |  Feb 03, 2006 at 07:35 PM

Adorable. However, the man is not Konrad (not Karl) Lorenz, the ethologist best known for rediscovering imprinting. Konrad Lorenz was born in 1903 and died in 1989 in Vienna. Mini-lesson of the day. :)

 |  Feb 09, 2006 at 11:20 PM

That is SOOOOO cutei cant belive people are calling that sad i mean the dog looks HEALTHY and HAPPY and the ducklings too so there CUTE haha we win!!!!!

 |  Feb 18, 2006 at 01:53 PM

I have a siberian husky and i wish she had a ton of baby ducklings following her around instead of just chewing up the new carpet. I dont just think this picture is cute, i think it is beatiful. i only wish that my life could consist of something as happy and innocent as that dog and her babys.

"Actually, this is from an experiment we learned about in my psych class. The guy is Karl Lorenz, and he was demonstrating imprinting, which is when an animal becomes attached to the first animal it sees after it is born."

I totally studied Karl Lorenz and the whole imprinting thing in my Animal Behavior Class. I love that you knew that. Karl Lorenz rocks.

 |  Mar 07, 2006 at 06:54 PM

Oh, oops, I think his name is Konrad Lorenz, not Karl Lorenz. Anyway, at least his studies on imprinting rock, not necessarily the man himself.

I guess either way, the ducklings and the dog are definitely cute and not sad.

 |  Mar 07, 2006 at 07:01 PM

its sooooooooooooo cute!

 |  Mar 14, 2006 at 12:51 PM

dont u think?????????????

 |  Mar 14, 2006 at 12:52 PM

omg thats so cute!!
alot o little ducks went out one day. into the city and far away. mother dog said woof woof woof woof
alot of little ducks came back!!

 |  Mar 17, 2006 at 09:20 PM

Dear Raji,
No, the dog wasn't sleeping off a hang over, or fucked that poor mother duck, I think the duckies just liked the dog, and how good of a pillow he must be.

Your sick,

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 02:57 PM

i'm angry at the mother duck. if you're not mature enough to take care of your own children, you shouldn't be having sex.

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 03:58 PM

So cute!

 |  Apr 02, 2006 at 11:43 AM

This is more like from imprinting. As studied by Karl Lorenz, precocious animals imprint on the first living thing they see after birth because under normal situations, this would be their mother.

 |  Apr 02, 2006 at 04:32 PM

The dog seems like a Jindo from Korea. The man with the dog seems Korean too.

Definately cute

 |  Apr 03, 2006 at 03:32 PM

its both cute & sad because the ducks don't have their mother & they are cute by following a dog thats fluffy thats why the ducks think its their mother. is in tht funny .

 |  May 07, 2006 at 08:57 AM


 |  May 10, 2006 at 08:12 AM

ok...first i think this is a little sad cuz what happened to the mother duck???? but it is sooo cute cuz the little ducklings have a new mother that loves them enough to feed them....but that is also gross cuz ducks drinking dog milk???? whats that all about??? lastly, kinda confusing....how do the ducklings mistake a huge dog for their mother when that dog looks absolutely nothing like a duck besides the fluffiness??

 |  May 26, 2006 at 11:44 AM

i sorta disagree with the first comment on it being sad cuz the ducks wouldn't be thinking that if they decided to follow the dog in the first place...but then again i agree with it because when they grow up, they'll probably figure out that they were "adopted." Poor ducks...

 |  May 26, 2006 at 11:48 AM

Ducks... not mammals... don't need milk... errh...

 |  Jun 06, 2006 at 10:51 AM


Ducks imprint the first creature that they see as their mother, so that dog was probably the first living thing that they saw when they came out of their eggs. Also, ducks are not mammals, so they do not drink milk from their mothers. And I don't think ducks have the capability to understand that they were "adopted"...

 |  Jun 11, 2006 at 03:02 AM

lol thats cute!

 |  Jun 14, 2006 at 01:09 PM

"The dog seems like a Jindo from Korea. The man with the dog seems Korean too."

I think it is Japan instead of Korea because the billboard in the background says NHK which is the Japanese Broadcasting Corporation.

Very very cute picture...

 |  Jun 17, 2006 at 01:01 AM

I think that this is cute & sad!

 |  Jun 17, 2006 at 05:18 PM

i think its sad and cute...
SAD: having babies follow you it reminds me of dawn of the dead....(it was so scary!)
CUTE: the dog and the baby chix follow and lay down or the dog ate their mom...
