Puppy Love

Illustration for article titled Puppy Love

A terrier cross pup named Leo risked his life on Sunday to keep guard over a litter of four kittens in a burning house in Melbourne, Australia. Firefighters say that Leo refused to leave the kittens' side in the burning house, despite the thick smoke and immense danger. The firefighters who discovered the pets had to revive Leo with oxygen and heart massage after the ordeal. A girl was also rescued from the fire and we are happy to report that everyone — furry and otherwise — is safe and sound. [MSNBC]

I think that this story could have been improved if somehow the word "doggedly" could have been included in there somewhere. Or "hound" as a verb. Or maybe, "the dog was in 'ruff' shape" or something. The pun possibilities are just so numerous.
