Hero bulldog saves drowning kittens

Pets often have an uncanny instinct for when someone is in trouble, and Napoleon the English Bulldog is not an exception. 

This story took place a few years ago, but it's still so fantastic that he deserves a mention. And what better way to round off the week than sharing a sunshine story?

One late summer day, Napoleon left his owner's side and raced out of the yard, across the road, and into a lake. The normally well behaved dog had never done anything like that before. English Bulldogs are really bad at swimming, and even with enormous paddling efforts they tend to go bottoms up in the water.

Napoleon paddled along the best he could and by the time his owner caught up with him, he was pulling a burlap sack out of the lake. Napoleon had his heart set on dragging the sack back to home, and when the owner came close enough, he heard meowing.

The bag held six kittens, thrown in the lake to drown! Two of them didn't make it, but thanks to Napoleon the remaining four could be nursed back to health and adopted to good homes.
