Dottie & Stanley

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEexxI4HDfA

I thought you would enjoy this rather remarkable tale of inter-species friendship. Dottie is a most attractive lady donkey who saw a savage dog attack her friend, Stanley the Sheep. She sprang into action, pinning the dog to the ground until he released his hold on Stanley's face. Stanley was badly wounded but after intensive veterinary care, has made a full recovery. I'm pleased to see a donkey receiving recognition for a selfless act of bravery, especially when there are still humans out there who perceive us as unfeeling and stubborn beings. I also approve of the way humans and other species in this short film mill about together quite amicably. Very civilized, although I'm not sure why the reporter person seems so shocked and amazed at Dottie's actions...obviously a fish fancier or beetle trainer or something, with no experience of the world of donkeys.

Camryn, Dottie is magnificent in every way, isn't she? I would do my best to protect the crew here but Herself says that level of activity would be worthy of the news network...

Don't worry Sheaffer. No need to put yourself at risk. Protecting the crew was Doc's job and now it's Chester's.

Love Dottie! I can see Redford doing the same thing, and even Rafer Johnson, who is quiet and reserved, but rises to the occasion when necessary.
