Moma Dog Digs To Save The Lives Of Her Pups.
When a Forest Fire in Chile started getting out of control, this clever mom decided the only option to save her and her pups lives was to dig a deep hole underneath the spreading fire. She quickly brought all nine pups to the pit and then climbed in on top of them, just managing to get a piece of corrugated roof over the top.

The wildfire near Valparaiso, Chile, had burned for days, driving thousands from their homes. Video shows firefighters battling walls of bright orange and yellow flame sweeping up hills and across a countryside covered in dry brush.
As firefighters brought the flames under control, local residents began telling them about seeing a dog leading a litter of small puppies away from the fire. It set off a frantic search leading to the hole were the puppies, just two weeks old, were buried.
Fire workers spent almost an hour retrieving the pups from the deep hole. And in the end, all nine were pulled to safety — healthy and uninjured in the fire.
At the same time, rescuers dug and coaxed the mother out of her shelter to reunite her with her pups.
The story of the heroic dog and her puppies has become a bright spot in Chile’s hot, dry fire season.
The dog has a new name, “Blackey,” and the family of strays now has a long list of people clamoring to give them new homes.
