Most of us know that ducklings imprint on their parents.
But sometimes, the imprinting process doesn't go exactly as planned. Movies like "Fly Away Home," for instance, depict extreme (and adorable!) examples of what can happen when baby animals learn behaviors from animals of other species or even humans instead of their actual parents.
This dog and his owner now know a thing or two about that. When they were out for their regular walk one day, they got quite the shock when they saw that they had a brand-new follower.

I hope he finds his real mommy soon! If he doesn't, the pup and his owner might be stuck with a new member of the adorable family.
