Bulldog rescues kittens

WE have always thought cats and dogs are the worst of enemies. Kaya nga may kasabihan tayong para tayong mga aso’t pusa kung hindi tayo nagkakasundo.

But it seems this is not always the case.

My research points to Napoleon, an English Bulldog who defied the poor swimming skills of his breed to swim deep out into a lake and rescue a burlap sack containing 6 abandoned kittens!

Napoleon braved the cold waters of the lake and swam furiously to rescue the kittens. While two of the kittens didn’t make it, the other four were nursed back to health. Napoleon was then rewarded with a hero’s welcome back at the local adoption center.
