Australian Shepherd Puppies Attempt To Herd Ducklings, Fail Adorably (VIDEO)

Beastie-filled TV channel Animal Planet has the amazing knack of recording the cutest footage. After all, these are the guys who brought us the video of baby sloths having a bath in some green tea - and that's seriously cute stuff.

Today, their latest cutesplosion comes in the form of these Australian Shepherd puppies trying to herd some ducklings.

Squabbling over a water trough - a very tiny water trough, to be fair - the ducklings initially have the upper, um, webbed foot before one particular puppy calls in for reinforcements from mum nearby.

Oh damn it, it's too much cute for just one day. Let's even things out by linking to something entirely not cute. How about... the Itchy & Scratchy supercut, will that do? Perfect.
