I think my heart is a lot more partial to animals than to humans. *bites lower lip*
Take a look at this video where pet dog Leo, risked his life to protect 4 kittens when the house caught fire. I don't really know HOW he thought he could protect them, but he was with them in the burning house and even suffered smoke inhalation.
Quite NUTS, but it just blew my mind... And i teared.
