Britainís rarest breed of dog - which is more endangered than the giant panda and the white rhino - could have been saved after 19 puppies were born this month.

Just 20 British Otterhounds were born in the UK during the whole of last year so the arrival of the pups - born into two litters to owner Maria Lerego in Ledbury, Herefordshire, - has provided a vital lifeline to the dying breed.

There are less than 1,000 Otterhounds left in the world and about 300 of those are in Britain.

I'll say! I wonder if they peppered the story with adorable puppy photos in an effort to appeal to dog lovers and bring the breed to the forefront.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

If they are like the article says they might make good assists dogs for the disabled.  They're big enough to be balance dogs.

Huge dog!!! That would be scary if you didn't know it was coming.

The internet is a series of tubes, and those tubes are full of cats.
