Your morning adorable: Duck plays on a slide

April 16, 2010 | 11:53 am

We could scarcely believe our eyes when we first saw YouTube user QueenCoreen's pet duck, Quackers, sliding down a child's slide into a lake.

We knew that ducks like water -- heck, there's even a well-known expression to that effect. But slides? That was a bit of a surprise -- albeit a decidedly pleasant one -- for us.

Quackers seems to be about the most charming and pleasant duck we've ever encountered; beyond his sliding exploits, he enjoys having his belly rubbed and engaging in vigorous, rough-and-tumble play with QueenCoreen's Yorkshire terrier, Molly. ("Sometimes the duck wins and sometimes the dog wins," QueenCoreen says.)

Now that's our kind of duck -- not like some attack ducks we can think of.
