Dogs are great, aren't they?

I was just sitting here, feeling proud of my attack cat, who just wrestled down and bit the tail off of a lizard till I read this......
True story. I rescued the salamander from the homocidal feline though and released it into the front yard.
My little tale of "animal heroism" pales in comparison to the dog though.
