Springer Spaniel Feeds Orphaned Lambs From Bottle
Jess, the springer spaniel, goes above and beyond the call of duty by feeding hungry orphaned lambs with a bottle she holds herself. This UK farm would be lost without her at this point. The Daily Mail has the story:
Three times a day, rain or shine, Jess the springer spaniel goes out on her milk round – to feed orphaned lambs from a bottle she carries in her mouth.
Louise Moorhouse, who has 270 sheep on her 180-acre farm, can’t imagine managing without Jess. ‘It’s like having an extra pair of hands,’ she said yesterday.
‘She’s been doing it ever since she was a puppy. I taught her to hold the milk bottle in her mouth and she did the rest. It’s very funny when she runs across the field gripping the bottle.’
