Dogs are inherently good-natured. No exceptions. If a dog is an asshole, it's because someone made it that way. They have no concept of spite, cruelty, or vindictiveness.

animalmagnet: That's really nice. Know what would have been nicer? The person with the camera helping save the pups instead of taking pictures.


My very first thought when I saw the pictures.

Just to be an asshole, saving your offspring from harm is entirely separate from the concept of being good-natured. Organisms who preferred to sit back and chill while their kids were crushed by nature are now long dead.

Yah I don't see too many cameramen trying to save zebras from lions. Isn't a photographer's job to observe?

/I know, I know a lot have set down their cameras to do heroic things from time to time.,But this is a Daily Fail article, the pups were probably never in any danger to beging with.
//Still heart warming pics nonetheless

Helping how? And it's not like taking the photos interfered with the rescue.

Oooh... just call me Ibn Trold.

I've read mixed accounts of this-- that the firefighters actually got the pups out of the house and momma took over from there-- which makes it no less awesome a story, but maybe restores a little faith on humanity.

In humanity. Sheeite. Oh the typographical inhumanity.

This, to be honest, and I've always been a cat person, too. But really, dogs have a farkton more sense than us idiot people do most of the time. They know what's really important in life. Sometimes I wonder which of us is actually the more fortunate - our 'intelligence' certainly doesn't seem to have made us too much happier in the long run.

Some subreddits have moderbators, those are the subreddits that suck though.

One of the pups dying from injuries sustained indicates otherwise.

That's one sad momma; she knows she lost one of them.

Funny, I clicked on the story and I don't see a single "Incredible photo of heroic mother dog carrying her ten-day-old puppies from a blazing home to safety". It is certainly mighty strange that with a car bomb going off, and a house ablaze, and firefighters all around, and a dog running in and out of this chaos that the only thing to be captured are these context free pics.

If I were a cynic (and I am), I'd suggest that there is a far less sensational explanation for the pics and certainly not the one being promoted by the Daily Mail which never lets the truth stand in the way of a good story.
