33. Dog mothers Squirrel
September 17, 2005

A young Jacksonville, Fla., boy found the abandoned squirrel last month. He named it "Chipper."  The boy's terrier, which is named "Pepper," started following her instincts and mothered the squirrel. Now Pepper, who hasn't had puppies in four years, is producing milk again. She is nursing Chipper back to health and even grooms her newest friend.
