Cats and dogs – Cats and dogs might traditionally be enemies, but one pooch in Iowa rescued two kittens. Several cats were sealed into a “Meow Mix” bag, abandoned on a road, and hit by a car.

Where are my comments?
The 911 dog reminds me of:
"HELLO! Yes, this is DOG!" (Meme)
Dogs are droolin' fools that accidentally save people. That dog that dialed 911? What about the million other times when somebody cried out for help, and the dog turned around and left to go chase a squirrel around the yard. Don't hear about that do ya, know why? Because those people die, and dead men tell no tales.
Stupid dogs are only in it for the glory and good press. Cats save people every damn day, we just aren't glory hogs that demand stories be published about our everyday heroics. We just give results. In that regard, Dogs are like Politicians and Cats are like the 99%.
Newt does kinda look like an ugly Pug. And Bachman is a crazy biatch... you might be on to something!
It's no wonder that people like you have cats. Too bad.
Catzilla, you are pathetic...probably generally miserable too! You wouldn't appreciate goodness if it smacked you in the face!
If stupidity could fly, you would fly like an eagle!
I applaud your epic Trollz, touche and for the lulz at the responses.
I have sometimes thought of the final cause of dogs having such short lives and I am quite satisfied it is in compassion to the human race; for if we suffer so much in losing a dog after an acquaintance of ten or twelve years, what would it be if they were to live double that time? – Sir Walter Scott
its great that the lab saved the kittens but what responsible dog owner just allows their dog to wander around out side unsupervised near a road?
Maybe we should also have a life limit on our children, elderly parents, spouse...... etc. What would happen if they "over lived" their alloted time and got sick or something and we had to look after them. How on earth would be manage the finaces
Are you misreading the quote about the life of dogs? The author is saying that he has often wondered why their life span is so short (the average dog lives 12-14 years; the world's oldest dog just died at 26). He is commenting on how hard we grieve when we lose them. I had a service dog for over 12 years whom I just lost this year. That relationship was an amazing bond that I will never forget.
Dogs are mean. And they have accidents in the floor. If you scoop out the litter in morning and evening, putting waiste in a ziplock, you never even know a kitty is there. Kittys dont smell and almost take care of themselves. Dogs sniff their own buttts and drink out of toilets.
You still have to clean the poo box though.
@ dogs are 4 nazis-The Nazis were good people trying to do the world a service. Amerkkka went and screwed it all to peices. Now look at this country, rotting from the inside.
