Dog Is Mother to Baby Rabbits (Feb, 1934)
Dog Is Mother to Baby Rabbits
BESSIE, a three-year-old purebred Alsatian dog in Orsett, England, had no puppies of her own, but longed for something on which to lavish her affections.
She adopted a baby rabbit, and was happy for a time. The rabbit died, however, and Bessie was so grief-stricken that her master bought her a tame rabbit.
Although rabbits generally have a deep fear of all dogs, they seem to sense the affection of Bessie, and are happy with her.
