Tiny Dog Saves Baby From Rattlesnake

MASONVILLE, Colo. - Zoey is a Chihuahua, but when a rattlesnake lunged at her owners' 1-year-old grandson, she was a real bulldog.

Booker West was splashing his hands in a birdbath in his grandparents' northern Colorado back yard when the snake slithered up to the toddler, rattled and struck. Five-pound Zoey jumped in the way and took the bites.

"She got in between Booker and the snake, and that's when I heard her yipe," said Monty Long, the boy's grandfather.

The dog required treatment and for a time it appeared she might not survive. Now she prances about.

"These little bitty dogs, they just don't really get credit," Booker's grandma Denise Long told the Loveland Daily Reporter-Herald.

Dogs are wonderful critters - just one more story that corroborates my belief that animals are indeed better than people. :thumbsup:

I always thought those little dogs had a mean streak in 'em. I always found them a tad on the annoying side (well at least the one that lives with the family across the street from them is), but this story may soften my opinion a bit.

LOL yeah, chihuahuas are nasty little buggers. Contrarily, most breeds of bulldogs are laid back to the extreme!

chihuahuas were bred by the incas as food. chickens have to be couped up in a pen, whereas the incas figured out that these little packs of dogs would follow them around wherever they went and not run off.

brilliant!
