Dog Feeds Orphaned Lambs in England

Jess, the springer spaniel running on 180 acres to find one of her orphaned lambs to feed. She has been nurturing needy babes on her owner's farm in Devon, England for the past 10 years.

This year, out of a flock of 270 sheep Jess is ‘mother’ to four Dorset Horn lambs which could not be fed by their own mothers. Read more and see more large photographs here. Oh, how I love this story!

You would love James Herriot's true stories about animals! He was a country vet. There are similar stories in his treasury for children which the kids and I enjoy very much. You probably already know all about him, but this story reminds me of his tales.
