Stunning Photos of Animals

 

  Stunning Photos of Animals you’ve probably never seen before

1 – Frilled shark
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Frilled-shark.jpg
This is a frilled shark. Frilled sharks are found throughout deep waters in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. It is often described as a “living fossil” because of its resemblance to extinct, Paleozoic sharks. They’re rarely seen alive because of their preference for deep water. A dying one was captured near the surface in Japan in 2007.
2 – Red cap goldfish
  http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Ed-cap-goldfish.jpg
A red cap goldfish, or “oranda”. These are characterized by a prominent hood that covers the head — which let’s face it, looks like their brains are on show.
Originally from China, they are popular aquarium pets today.
3 – Promachoteuthis sulcus
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Promachoteuthis-sulcus.jpg
Meet Promachoteuthis sulcus, a bizarre creature straight out of your nightmares. As you can see, this thing looks like it has freakishly human looking teeth. They’re actually just flaps of skin, but they’re still pretty unnerving! It’s a species of promachoteuthid squid and only one specimen has been found to date. It was captured in the Southern Atlantic Ocean at a depth of 2,000m in 2007.
4 – Crocodile Fish
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Crocodile-Fish.jpg
This is a white-blooded ice fish, or “crocodile fish” (Chaenocephalus aceratus). They lack both red blood cells and hemoglobin, and so have white blood. They have translucent bodies, and absorb oxygen directly from the water around them.
5 – Amber phantom butterfly
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Amber-phantom-butterfly.jpg
The amber phantom butterfly (Haetera piera), found in the Guianas, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Venezuela.
6 – The Pistol Shrimp
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/The-Pistol-Shrimp.jpg
The pistol shrimp is the NOISIEST creature in the ocean. Colonies of them make a distinct snapping noise that overshadows nearly all other sounds throughout the world’s oceans, including the calls of some whales. In fact, they are so loud, their snapping sounds interfere with military and scientific sonar (so much so, that hostile submarines have used large colonies of pistol shrimps to hide).
7 – Lion’s Mane Jellyfish
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Lions-Mane-Jellyfish.jpg
The Lions Mane Jellyfish is the largest jellyfish in the world. They have been swimming in arctic waters since before the dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world. The bell can grow up to 8 feet in diameter with hundreds of tentacles up to 120 feet long. Remarkably, only 6% of the jellyfish is solid matter; the rest is water.
8 – Blue footed booby
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Blue-footed-booby.jpg
Meet the blue footed booby, found from the Gulf of California down along the western coasts of Central and South America to Peru. Their bright blue feet are a sexually selected trait. The brighter a males feet, the more attractive he is to a female. To attract a female, they have an elaborate dancing ritual to display their feet, first lifting one foot and then the other.
9 – The Cardinal Gynandromorph
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/The-Cardinal-Gynandromorph.jpg
No, this isn’t photoshopped. This is a cardinal “gynandromorph” – an animal that exhibits both female and male sexual characteristics. As different sexes are differently coloured, each half of the bird is a different shade.
10 – The Mexican walking fish.
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/The-Mexican-walking-fish.jpg
“Walking fish” is a pretty general term used to describe any fish that is able to travel over land. Ironically, the Mexican walking fish isn’t a fish at all, but an amphibian. It’s official name is axolotl and as the name suggests, it’s found in Mexico.
11 – Amazon milk frog
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Amazon-milk-frog.jpg
The Amazon milk frog, a large species of arboreal frog native to the Amazon Rainforest in South America.
12 – Glass frogs
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Glass-frogs.jpg
Glass frogs, a group of South and Central American frogs with translucent skin. Their internal viscera, including the heart, liver, and gastrointestinal tract are all completely visible.
13 – Yeti crab
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Yeti-crab.jpg
This is the yeti crab (Kiwa hirsuta). Only discovered in 2005, the yeti crab lives in the South Pacific Ocean and grows to around 15cm long. Discovered at a depth of 2,200 metres (7,200 ft), it lives on hydrothermal vents. Based on both morphology and molecular data, the organism was deemed to form a new biological family, which was named Kiwaidae. A second species in the family was described in 2011. The “hairy” claws of the yeti crab contain filamentous bacteria, which the creature may use to convert carbon molecules emitted by the hydrothermal vents into nutrients. This is a process known as chemosynthesis. It may also consume bacteria.
14 – Alarm jellyfish
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Alarm-jellyfish.jpg
This is the alarm jellyfish (Atolla Wyvillei) – and it has a rather unique defence mechanism. When the alarm jellyfish is attacked, it flashes brightly using bioluminescence in an attempt to attract other animals. The idea is to encourage confusion and fights between predators, while the jellyfish can swim away.
15 – Nembrotha cristata
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Nembrotha-cristata.jpgThis is Nembrotha cristata, a colourful sea-slug found in the tropical Indo-West Pacific Ocean. They grow to about 50mm in length and have black bodies with a strange luminous green “trim”. Like most nudibranchs, they deliver a painful sting. They do not produce the stinging cells themselves but incorporate them into their own tissues from their prey, stinging jellyfish.
16 – Leatherback Sea Turtle
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Leatherback-Sea-Turtle.jpg
The Leatherback Sea Turtle is the largest turtle in the world, weighing approximately 900kg. Contrary to appearance, the leatherback doesn’t actually have a shell. What looks like a shell is in fact a leathery skin supported by small bones. This gives it a flexibility that a solid shell would not provide, allowing it to dive to astonishing depths.
17 -Pink Bottlenose Dolphin
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Pink-Bottlenose-Dolphin.jpg
18 – Hermit Crab
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Hermit-Crab.jpg
19 – Purple frogs
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Purple-frogs.jpg
20 – Satanic Leaf Tailed Gecko
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Satanic-Leaf-Tailed-Gecko.jpg
21 – Rare Albino Alligator
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Rare-Albino-Alligator.jpg
22 – One of the few albino whales on earth
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/One-of-the-few-albino-whales-on-earth.jpg
23 – Stunning Albino Bengal Tiger
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Stunning-Albino-Bengal-Tiger.jpg
24 – Incredibly rare albino giraffe
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Incredibly-rare-albino-giraffe.jpg
25 – Pink fairy armadillo!
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Pink-fairy-armadillo.jpg
26 – Tube-nosed fruit bat
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Tube-nosed-fruit-bat.jpg
This creature was found just a few years ago, and doesn’t even have an official name yet. Supposedly well-known for being the animal that most looks like Yoda…
27 – King of Saxony bird of paradise
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/King-of-Saxony-bird-of-paradise.jpg
28 – Indian Bull Frog
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/ndian-Bull-Frog.jpg
Found in Myanmar, Bangladesh, Pakistan and of course India.The Indian bullfrog is renowned for its large size (some can be up to 15cm in length!) and dramatic coloring.
29 – Albino Lion
http://talesmaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Albino-Lion.jpg

Happy Story for the day‏

Look carefully in each picture for the cat as it makes its way down from the roof to the dog. Then, check the explanation at the end.
 
 
 
The story behind this picture is this:
Every day – at the same time – she waits for him.
Sometimes she barks to call him.
He comes; they rub and greet each other
and they go for a walk.
They have done this for 5 years
and no, they don’t belong to the same owners.
The owners didn’t know until neighbors, seeing them together so frequently,
commented to the cat’s owner, who then followed the dog home and discovered it was a distance away, not in a house close by or next door.
How it started no one knows.
Wouldn’t it be great to have friends like this
always there, no words needed, they just intuitively recognize the value of each other in their lives and act accordingly.
Live, Laugh, Love.
Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s the way it is.
The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.
 A wise person once said ….There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it.
 
You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good.
 
So love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t.
 
Life is too short to be anything but happy.
 
Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.

One Hungry Little Mouse!

 


The extraordinary scene was captured by photography student Casey Gutteridge at the Santago Rare Leopard Project. The student was photographing the leopard for a course project, was astounded by the mouse’s behavior.

He said: ‘I have no idea where the mouse came from – he just appeared in the enclosure after the keeper had dropped in the meat for the leopard. He didn’t take any notice of the leopard, just went straight over to the meat and started feeding himself.’

‘But the leopard was pretty surprised – she bent down and sniffed the mouse and flinched a bit like she was scared. In the meantime the mouse just carried on eating like nothing had happened.

Even a gentle shove does not deter the little creature from getting his fill… ‘It was amazing, even the keeper who had thrown the meat into the enclosure was shocked – he said he’d never seen anything like it before.’

Project owner Jackie James added: ‘It was so funny to see – Sheena batted the mouse a couple of times to try to get it away from her food.’ But the determined little thing took no notice and just carried on.’

Sheena was brought in to the Santago Rare Leopard Project from a UK zoo when she was just four months old. The African Leopard can be found in the continent’s forests, grasslands, savannas, and rainforests.

….so the mouse continued to eat the leopard’s lunch and show the leopard who was the
boss. Just proves no one can push you around without your permission.

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL LESSON IN LIFE AND LONGEVITY.
Be nice to others because…

Time WILL make a difference!

One day you will no longer be the big dog… Just the old dog…

And my friend, WE are now the old dogs.

HOWEVER, OLD DOG IS BETTER THAN DOG-GONE.

Do elephants remember?-not too funny…

 What an amazing story

In 1972, Joe Miller was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Tulsa Junior College .

On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Joe approached it very carefully. He got down on one knee, inspected the elephants foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Joe worked the wood out with his knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot.

The elephant turned to Joe, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Joe stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled.

Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away. Joe never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

Thirty years later, in 2002, Joe was walking through the Tulsa Zoo with his family. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Joe and his family were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Joe, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.

Remembering the encounter in 1972, Joe could not help wondering if this was the same elephant… Joe summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing, and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Joe’s legs and slammed him against the railing killing him instantly.

—–Probably wasn’t the same        elephant.—–

How did the human race appear?-funny…

THE CREATION

A little girl asked her mother, “How did the human race appear?”
The mother answered, “God made Adam and Eve and they had children,
and so was all mankind made..”

FwTHECRE

Two days later the girl asked her father the same question.. The father answered,
“Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved.”

FwTHECRE 1

The confused girl returned to her mother and said, ” Mum , how is it possible that
you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys ?”

The mother answered, “Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my
              side of the family and your father told you about his.”

THIS IS A TERRIFIC STORY, BUT

YOU MUST READ IT, DON’T JUST

LOOK AT THE PICTURES ! OKAY ?

Puppy Size

This is one of the neatest stories you will ever hear. You will know precisely what this little girl is talkingabout at the end (you’ll want to share this one with your loved ones and special friends)!

‘Danielle keeps repeating it over and over again. We’ve been back to this animal shelter at least five times.It has been weeks now since we started all of this,’ the Mother told the volunteer.

‘What is it she keeps asking for ?’ the Volunteer asked.’Puppy size!’ replied the Mother.

Inline images 2

‘Well, we have plenty of Puppies, if that’s what she’s looking for..’

‘I know…. We have seen most of them,

‘the Mom said in frustration…

Just then Danielle came walking into the office.
‘Well, did you find one?’ asked her Mom.

‘No, not this time,’ Danielle said with sadness in her voice.

‘Can we come back on the weekend?’

Inline images 3

The two Women looked at each other,

shook their heads and laughed

‘You never know when we will get more dogs. Unfortunately, there’s always a supply,’ the Volunteer said.

Danielle took her mother by the hand and headed to the door.

‘Don’t worry, I’ll find one this weekend,’ she said.

Over the next few days both Mom and Dad had long conversations with her.

They both felt she was being too particular. ‘It’s this weekend or we’re not looking anymore’,     Dad finally said in frustration.

Inline images 4

‘We don’t want to hear anything more about ‘Puppy size’, either,’ Mom added.

Sure enough, they were the first ones in the shelter on Saturday morning .

By now Danielle knew her way around, so she ran right for the section that housed the smaller dogs.

Tired of the routine, Mom sat in the small waiting room at the end of the first row of cages. There was an observation window so you could see the animals during times when visitors weren’t permitted.

Inline images 5

Danielle walked slowly from cage to cage, kneeling periodically to take a closer look.

One by one the dogs were brought out and she held each one. One by one she said,                ‘Sorry, but you’re not the One.’

It was the last cage on this last day in search of the perfect pup. The volunteer opened the cage door and the child carefully picked up the dog and held it closely. This time she took a little longer.

‘Mom, that’s it! I found the right puppy! He’s the one! I know it!’ She screamed with joy.

‘It’s the Puppy Size !’

‘But it’s the same size as all the other Puppies you held over the last few weeks,’ Mom said.

‘No not Size. ‘The Sighs’. When I held him in my arms, he sighed,’ she said. ‘Don’t you remember? When I asked you one day what Love is, you told me love depends on the sighs of your heart. The more you love, the bigger the sigh !’

The two Women looked at each other for a moment. Her Mom didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. As she stooped down to hug the child, she did a little of both.

‘Mom, every time you hold me, I sigh. When you and Daddy come home from work and hug each other, you both sigh. I knew I would find the right Puppy if it sighed when I held it in my arms,’ she said. Then, holding the puppy up close to her face, she said, ‘Mom, he loves me. I heard the sighs of his heart!’

Inline                                             images 6

Close your eyes for a moment and think about the Love that makes you sigh.

I not only find it in the arms of my loved ones, but in the caress of a sunset, the kiss of the moonlight and the gentle brush of cool air on a hot day !

They are the sighs of God. Take the time to stop and listen; you will be surprised at what you hear. ‘Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.’

Inline images 7

I hope your Life is filled with many Sighs !

Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends !

Life is just too short and friends are too few.
Love the people who treat you right and forget the rest !

‘It’s a big one…..25 feet at least, please advise, gator is heading to inlet….do I pursue?, Over’



That has to be a HUGE gator to have a whole deer in its mouth!
The deer was later found to be a mature Stag.
If you ski at the west end of the lake —- try not to fall overboard.




This alligator was found between Lakeland and Winter HavenFlorida near the house of Anita and Charlie Rogers, who could hear the beast bellowing in the night.

Their neighbors had been telling them that they had seen a mammoth alligator in the waterway that runs behind their house, but they dismissed the stories as exaggerations.

‘I didn’t believe it,’ Charles Rogers said, but after the alligator was killed, they realized the stories were, if anything,  understated.

Game wardens were forced to shoot the alligator. Joe Goff, a 6’5″ tall game warden, shown below, walks past the 28-foot, 1-inch long alligator that he helped shoot and kill in the Rogers
‘ back yard.

Dog’s Purpose: from a 6-Year-Old

worth reading even if they don’t have a dog

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker.
The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker,

and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer.

I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure as they felt that Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker’s family surrounded him.

Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.

The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion.

We sat together for a while after Belker’s Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.


Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, “I know why.”

Startled, we all turned to him.

What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.

He said, People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?

The Six-year-old continued, Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.”

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:
· When loved ones come home, always run to greet them;
· Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride;
· Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy;
· Take naps;
· Stretch before rising;
· Run, romp, and play daily;
· Thrive on attention and let people touch you;
· Avoid biting when a simple growl will do;
· On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass;
· On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree;
· When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body;
· Delight in the simple joy of a long walk;
· Be loyal;
· Never pretend to be something you’re not;
· If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it;
· When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently;

There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it.

You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good, so, love the people who treat you right.

Think good thoughts for the ones who don’t ~ life is too short to be anything but happy.

Falling down is part of LIFE…
Getting back up is LIVING…

DON’T COMPLAIN ABOUT GROWING OLD…
SOME PEOPLE DON’T GET THAT PRIVILEGE

‘invisible animal’?

Can you spot the ‘invisible animal’? Incredible images show nature’s disappearing act when predators are near

  • These animals are trying their utmost to fool predators by blending into landscapes all over the world
  • They were taken by photographer Art Wolfe over a period of 35 years, for his work ‘Vanishing Act’

Whether they are hunters or the hunted, these cunning animals are all masters of disguise who can fool even the most beady-eyed passer by into believing they are not there.

Some hide under lily pads, some dissolve into the bark of a tree while others slip seamlessly into the snow, either to hide from a hungry predator or silently stalk an unwitting prey.

But the one thing from which they cannot hide is the all-seeing camera lens of photographer Art Wolfe.

He has spent over 35 years roaming the deserts of Africa, the rainforests of South America, the mountains of the United States and snow plains of Canada to capture wildlife at its most invisible.

A willow ptarmigan in winter plumage, hidden on a brushy slope near Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. The animals are trying their utmost to fool predators but that’s not enough to deceive international photographer Art Wolfe

He has travelled through every continent in the world in tireless pursuit of more subjects for his chef-d’oeuvre ‘Vanishing Act’ that dates back to the 1980s.

Art said: ‘Throughout my career as a nature photographer, I have challenged myself to present new perspectives on well-documented subjects.

‘Like most of my projects this collection has been a long time in the making.

‘Finding and filming animals on location is an exhilarating and painstaking process. I’m still adding to the project even now.

‘Conventional wildlife photography calls for isolating the subject by selective focus, this way the animal is clearly defined.

‘Photographers always want to show off their subject. And yet, is this really the way an animal is viewed by the human eye? Not quite.

‘We don’t have the isolating abilities that a telephoto lens provides. On most occasions an animal remains somewhat concealed by the clutter of its natural habitat-a necessity of survival for both predator and prey.

‘I have basically employed three different photographic approaches and purposely worked to enhance the difficulty to find the camouflaged subject-as difficult as it is in the wild to see animals that do not want to be seen.

‘Since it is impossible to capture all the distractions to the senses of an entire landscape in a photo, I worked to make it visually challenging by using depth of field, scale and placement and confusing the subject.’

Art is also a successful book publisher and television producer. He has published at least one book a year since 1989.

The 61-year-old from Seattle said: ‘It is in the wild places, where the edge of the earth meets the corners of the sky, the human spirit is fed.’

These animals were photographed just north of the Wisconsin border on a highway near Marenisco , MI .

Once in awhile there is an opportunity to take in a piece of nature that you may never see. In these days of unrest and turmoil it is great to see that GOD still produces some wondrous beauty.

The odds of seeing an albino moose are astronomical and to see this in the upper peninsula of Michigan , near Wisconsin , is even greater than astronomical. To see two of them together is nearly impossible.

We wanted to share these photos with as many people as possible because you will probably never have a chance to see this rare sight again.

This is a really special treat, so enjoy the shots of a lifetime!

 Hello, Boss

I can’t come to work today.

A moose was born on my front lawn and the

Mama won’t let us out the front door!

Baby Moose, 12-hours old, born in the

middle of downtown Naubinway , MI

.Description:

In my 33 years in Michigan ‘s Upper Peninsula ,

I have never seen a new-born baby moose.

The mother picked a small quiet neighborhood

and had her baby in a front yard, near Highway # 2,

at 5:30 AM. Allen and I were bike riding when we

came upon the pair. The lady across the street from

the house said she saw it being born. We saw them

at 5:30 PM, so the little one was then 12 hours old.

What an awesome place to live!

A Dog named Faith

 

This dog was born in 2002. He was born with 2 legs.    He of course could not walk when he was born. Even his mother did not want him.

His first owner also did not think that he could survive and he was thinking of ‘putting him to sleep’.

But then, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted to take care of him.

She became determined to teach and train this little dog to walk by himself.

She named him ‘Faith’.

In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfboard to let him feel the movement.

Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward for him for standing up and jumping around.

Even the other dog at home encouraged him to walk.

Amazingly, only after 6 months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on his hind legs and to jump to move forward.

After further training in the snow, he could now walk like a human being.


Faith loves to walk around now.

No matter where he goes, he attracts people to him.

He is fast becoming famous on the international scene and has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows.

There is now a book entitled ‘With a Little Faith’ being published about him.

He was  even considered to appear in one of Harry Potter movies.

His present owner Jude Stringfellew has given up her teaching  post and plans to take him around the world to preach that  even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect  soul’.






In life there are always undesirable things, so in order to feel better you just need to look at life from another direction.

I hope this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone and that everyone will appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful day.

Faith is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of life.

 

 

Dog – “a mother’s ove”

During an early morning response to a house fire, firefighters were amazed.
A mother dog risked her life to save her puppies from the fire surrounding the burning house…
The mother dog, Amanda, raced back and forth between the house, putting her 10 day old puppies in the safest place she could find – a fire truck!
She didn’t stop racing back into the fire until all of her puppies were safely away from the fire.
The firemen on scene could not believe their eyes. Most people have never seen a dog this smart or this brave!
After rescuing all of her pups from the blaze, Amanda sat down next to them, protecting them with her body.
Onlookers called an emergency veterinary service and she and her pups were rushed to the hospital.
Aside from one puppy being treated for serious burns, the entire family are alive and well – thanks to the bravery of Amanda!
What a heroic mother! 🙂
