GILBERT, SC (WIS) - Mothers don't have to be blood relatives. Two ducklings have a mom of sorts that prove it.

Ginger is a golden retriever. She has adopted the two little ducklings.

Her owner said Ginger loves to play with the ducklings and they follow her everywhere. "She's supposed to be out hunting ducks and retrieving them after people shoot them or whatever," said owner Michelle French, "And you see she's never going to do that, hopefully."

After two months of foster care via Ginger, the ducklings will soon be released onto Lake Murray. Whether they go out on their own will be a different story.
