A two-year-old dog…

A two-year-old dog in Thailand has been credited with saving an abandoned newborn baby’s life after it carried the baby – which was in a plastic bag – from a landfill to its house and barked until its owners came outside.


Twelve-year-old Sudarat Thongmak was the first to find the baby and she then informed her parents, Pummarat and Kummerd. The couple reportedly plans to adopt the baby girl.

  14. As the adopted father of a 2-month old baby girl from another country who has grown into a responsible adult, I ask that those who made sweeping statements about how awful humanity is, etc, to reconsider their comments. Some humans do terrible things. Some dogs do too. Most humans aren’t terrible and most dogs aren’t either. I cannot even judge the couple. I don’t know what led them to do such a thing. Perhaps seeing their other babies die of starvation? Perhaps either the father or the mother isn’t even aware of what happened to the child because the other acted on their own? Or perhaps they firmly believed after running out of all other options that what they did was that the best hope for the child. I believe that a critical piece of humankind and individuals to grow and progress is to seek first to understand. It is easy to rush to judgment. I’ve done it many times myself. But when I have, I have closed my mind to opportunities for growth and closed my heart to opportunities for compassion.

    • I appreciate your response, Russ. As I said in a previous comment, we don’t know the full story, the other side and the circumstances however, one can condemn the act while still feeling compassion for the actors, surely? (。◕‿◕。)
