Touching pictures of a dog rescuing her ten-day-old puppies from a house fire and carrying them to safety have emerged on the internet.

The blaze broke out at a home in Santa Rosa de Temuco, Chile, on Thursday after a car bomb went off.

The mother dog - a German Shepherd mix called Amanda - risked her life to pick up the puppies in her mouth and carried them from the burning house to the safety of the fire truck.

Amazing. Such devotion shows that even animals can override their fear of harm to save their babies.

I recall a similar story that involved a mommy cat who went into a burning building to save each and every kitten even as she got burned herself.

So sweet.

There is no love like that of a mother for her children.

Reading or hearing stories like this makes me think about all those dog movies I watched when I was a kid, especially Lassie. Good movies, they are.

And somebody should give that momma dog a lifetime of free bone-treats.

Aw, that is so beautiful.  What is really amazing is that she had the sense to choose the firetruck as the safe haven, like she totally understood it had arrived to save the day and the firemen along with it, truly insightful of her :yes: .  Poor pup that didn't make it, I hate thinking how it would have broke her heart to see it injured so badly. :cry:
