This mama dog was staying at the Barkers Pet Motel in Alberta, Canada while her owners were away. When she heard some puppies barking their loneliness, she got out of her own kennel and went to comfort them. Fortunately, one of the kennel keepers let her into the pen.
It was a beautiful moment for all of them. Maggie’s puppies had recently been adopted, but the kennel pups gave her a chance to do some mothering.
Does anyone still think it’s anthropomorphizing to attribute feelings to our fellow creatures?
