The Doberman is pregnant. The fireman had just saved her from a fire in her house,

rescuing her by carrying her out of the house into her front yard, then he continued to fight the fire.

When he finally got done putting the fire out,

he sat down to catch his breath and rest.

A photographer from the Charlotte , North Carolina Newspaper, noticed the dog in the distance looking at the fireman.

He saw the Doberman walking straight toward the firefighter

and wondered what she was going to do.

As he raised his camera, she came up to the tired man who had just saved her life

and the lives of her babies and kissed him just as the photographer snapped this photograph.

I think animals are more appreaciative than people.

To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them...’’ — Richard Henry Lee, 1787

Appreciative animals

Jim, you're 100% right about that. I think that most of us have gotten animals out of bad situations and had them express their thanks in whatever way they can. Makes you feel really good when it happens.

It's probably just me, since I'm pretty much a cranky ass curmudgeon, but I like most animals better than most humans. They're a hell of a lot more honest.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. (Mark Twain).

Morning Adam,
We had a Beagle that was like that, sick, hurt, recuperating, or just felt bad, that pup would not leave our side's.
