I love these stories!  They always go to prove my point, animals are a lot smarter, caring, compassionate and loving, than many people give them credit for.  I can't count the number of times I've heard "They're only a dog or they're only a cat" as if they can't think or feel or care.  It's pure ignorance and those comments can only come from someone who has never bonded with an animal before.

This is the story of a puppy who decided to go for a swim.  There was only one problem, he didn't know how to swim.  But another dog standing by watching the whole thing, jumped in, gave him a nudge and out of the pool he went.  This is one of the most heartwarming scenes and stories...
