As an owner of 1 dog and a cat, I am always amazed to hear such great stories...

Wonderful! Dogs and cats can be so
loving and sensitive, especially to humans
who don't always repay them kindly. The
dog is a real hero - he saved a life. Lots
of love and noms for him/her.

Usually the girl children are the ones abandoned. I hope that this child is adopted into a real home and not one of the risky orphanages. She is beautiful. I'm proud of that dog, remarkable, and good protective instincts.

It was amazing how they found both of them. They had ordered a search party for the missing hound dog and found him curled up with the infant!

I'm not surprised by this behavior as that is what dogs do, they take care of us.
I am shocked there was no photo of the dog, I wanna know if he was one of those "vicious pit bulls" like I have as an avatar.
