I just found the best instagram page 😍😍😍 Obsessed w/this lab who adopted these duckies

Meet Fred, he’s a 10-year old Labrador Retriever who never had babies of his own but here we are — adopted nine miniature duckies after their mom went missing last week. No one knows what happened to mama duck, what we do know is these photos are precious.

What makes you FEEL GOOD? I LOVE our FEEL GOOD stories on @kost1035fm! Thx for sharing yours @howied @backstreetboys ♥️♥️♥️

The Ellen K Morning Show welcomed the Backstreet Boys in-studio. And, as usual, we collect feel good stories from everyone, including the Backstreet Boys! The most shocking story came out of Howie Dorough’s Feel Good! Turns out, he recently found out he was related to Bob Dorough, who was the composer & performer of all the songs from Schoolhouse Rock! Listen to him tell the story in his own words. Click HERE to listen!
