Just one more story that supports my contention that dogs as a group are better than most people.

This reminds me of a similar incident in Russia several years ago. A three year old wandered away from where her family was picnicing. If memory serves, it took a couple of days to find her and night time temps dropped. She said the 'big dogs' came at night and slept with her. Tracks confirmed the big 'dogs' were wolves.

Can there be any question that most canines, incl. wolves, are better than most humans?
