(Newser) – A 3-year-old girl in Poland who got lost and spent the night in a marshland as temperatures fell below freezing has a little dog to thank for her life, reports the BBC. "For the whole night the animal was with the girl—it never left her," says a local firefighter. The temperature dropped to about 23 degrees Fahrenheit, and the little girl was wet, but the pooch kept her warm enough, he said. Firefighters eventually found the girl, and she's now recuperating in a local hospital.

If it was up to the Democrats , they would have sued the city for allowing her to get lost. If the Government can't take care of its people 100% of the time then the Government should be sued 100% of the time.

If it was up to the GOP, "she would have been on her own"!

LOL, I love how all the "animal lovers" have to anthropomorphize the dog as having human motives to "save" the little girl. Obviously it was acting on it's natural physical instinct to keep ITSELF from freezing to death in those temperatures by using HER body heat to keep warm. And if they'd been out there long enough for the dog to get really hungry , he was already curled up next to a nice, warm MEAL. Life is a struggle for survival, it isn't a Disney movie where all the animals are "just like little people"...
