Last week at approximately 6pm in the evening, Maisie noticed flames and smoke bellowing from a house in Limes Road, (in the UK) . Mr. Whitmore, the owner of the house resides there with some lodgers, as well as his wife and children. At the time of the incident, Mr. Whitmore was in his local sports and social club, before he was greeted by Maisie, smelling of smoke.
Maisie impressed local neighbours after running a total of 350 yards from the burning building to the local sports and social club. Maisie was in the kitchen of the building when the blaze started, which is said to have begun as a result of something being cooked on the hob. When Mr. Whitmore was alerted of the incident, he called fire fighters.
An hour after the beginning of the fire, the fire department put the fire out with the use of breathing equipment. Thankfully, due to the Yorkshire Terrier’s fast reaction, no one was hurt in the process. Although the bottom floor of Mr. Whitmore’s house was badly affected by smoke, it appears that only the kitchen really experienced the majority of damage from flames.
Yorkie to the Rescue!

Tiny "Lucy," who weighs just 2 1/2 pounds, was named the world's smallest working dog last week, bumping out a 6.6-pound police dog in Japan.
She was headed for an animal shelter two years ago when a woman brought her into the Paw Dazzle pet boutique in Smithville. This dog was almost HOMELESS! Who could not love that face?? How can people give up their dogs to a shelter?? I think it is THEIR responsibility, to find that dog a new home!
Shop owner Sally Leone Montufar decided to keep her. She tells The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill the Yorkie was lethargic then. But Lucy was brought back to health and has been trained for her therapy work. She visits hospitals, nursing homes and special schools, often wearing dresses and bonnets.

In a zoo in California , a mother tiger gave birth
to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs.
Unfortunately, Due to complications in the pregnancy,
the cubs were born prematurely
and due to their tiny size,
they died shortly after birth.
The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery,
suddenly started to decline in health,
Although physically she was fine.
The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter
had caused the tigress to fall into a depression.
The doctors decided
that if the tigress could surrogate
another mother's cubs,
perhaps she would improve.
After checking with many other zoos across the country,
the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs
of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother..
The veterinarians decided to try something
that had never been tried in a zoo environment.
Sometimes a mother of one species
will take on the care of a different species.
The only orphans' that could be found quickly,
were a litter of weanling pigs.
The zoo keepers and vets
wrapped the piglets in tiger skin
and placed the babies around the mother tiger...
The Tiger took them immediately! And her health improved!
This has been in several zoo's, where a tiger raises piglets.
Watch the video!
