Dog rescues baby from trash

Another hero dog — this one in Thailand — is also enjoying international fame.

When Pui spotted the white plastic bag, he took it in his mouth, brought it home and barked as loud as he could. The owner’s 12-year-old niece came to see what the fuss was about and looked in the bag, discovering a newborn baby girl.

The infant was taken to a hospital, and authorities are looking for its mother. And Pui is being handsomely rewarded — first with a leather collar and medal from the Red Cross and then with a $300 gift from the Miracle of Life Foundation.

Dogs are awesome.  They seem to have an instinct to help.  I wish more people had that.

Another case that shows that dogs are more humane than humans, especially the female that threw the baby in the trash.

GEORGE GRAHAM VEST, put it best ….

 

Gentlemen of the jury, the best friend a man has in this world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter whom he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us---those who we trust with our happiness and our good name---may become traitors to their faith. The money that a man has he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it most. A man's reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honor when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its clouds upon our heads. The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world---the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous---is his dog. 

 

 

Gentlemen of the jury, a man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he can be near his master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens. If fortune drives the master forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies. And when the last scene of all comes, and death takes the master in its embrace, and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death.
