Lab Mom to Orphaned Rabbits

Koa, a 6-year-old Lab, was chasing lizards in the backyard of her San Francisco home when she discovered three orphaned baby rabbits in a nest in the dirt. Ever since, owner Tina Case says, Koa has taken on the role of mom to the two survivors. "They hop all over her and always find their way to the crook of her legs, where it is warm and sheltered. Koa has never been a mother, and these are like her puppies." As soon as they're big enough, Tina says, she plans to release the rabbits back into the wild.
