Yorkie Mom Raises New Born Kittens

This is one of those amazing stories that warms your heart.
From Utah -  Bridget is a 10 -year-old Yorkshire terrier that was surrendered to the Humane Society of Utah last week. She was pregnant, and just days later gave birth to 2 pups, but they did not survive.

Later that day kittens arrived at the shelter. 

The next morning when doctors came to check on both of their new patients, those patients had found each other. All five kittens, nestled under Bridget's caring fur and watchful eye ... she had become a mother after all.

"I haven't seen anything like that before, it was really just quite exciting, really quite touching," Van Zandt said.

And so, since Monday, this 10-year-old dog has been doing all of the usual 'new mom' activities for this litter of five kittens. She's been cleaning, chasing and even feeding her adoptive babies.

Does Your Dog Know When They Have Bad Haircuts?

Yesterday we took Trixie in to be trimmed up. With her usual groomer.  But she was only half listening to me when I told her how I wanted her trimmed up.

2 hours later I got my baby back with an AWFUL haircut - and even the dog knew it!  All day she moped around the house - and today she has not been usual self. It's like she has no confidence - her personality is deflated.

Do you thinks dogs know when they have a bad haircut?  or maybe it's just so short - she's feels different?

UK Yorkie from West Yorkshire Barks and Barks to Help Save Neighbor

From Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK -

A Yorkshire Terrier has been praised for raising the alarm after an elderly neighbour collapsed in her garden in the dark.

Brian Hullah, 62, said he had no idea how his five-year-old dog Bella knew Rita Butler had collapsed but he said if the dog had not alerted him she could have been there all night.

Mr Hullah said Bella, usually a quiet dog, started barking in the kitchen at about 9pm on Sunday.
He said: “She was going a bit berserk. She’s usually pretty quiet, so we thought there must have been a cat or something out there.

“I opened the door and she shot out and she was running up and down the side of the fence barking.”
Mr Hullah said his stepson Andrew White went through the gate into their neighbour’s garden and found the pensioner, believed to be about 80, laid on the ground under some bushes.

How could the dog possibly sense something was wrong with a neighbor?!

Watch the interview with the dog's owner!
