I know this has happened before, but it still amazes me. At the zoo in Qingdao, China, a baby Siberian tiger was abandoned by its mother. It wasn’t long before a dog stepped in to nurse the tiger and act as its mother. Don’t you just love the picture? I think the tiger looks like a Shar-pei. I’m sure they’re really stripes, but they look like wrinkles.

Do you remember the children’s book called, “Are You My Mother?” The Safari Zoological Park in Caney, Kansas, is putting a new spin on this theme. White tiger cubs, abandoned by their natural mother, are being nursed by Isabella the dog.
