Definitely one of this year's furry animals that save the day, this cute mama dog got a couple Red Panda cubs (kits?) to care for after their own mother abandoned them soon after birth. She performed the perfunctory sniff-and-greet before welcoming the lil ones to nurse. See one more pic of how well they warmed up to the doggie when you read more.
What makes the rejection even worse is that the Red Panda mom snubbed the babes in front of a huge crowd of visitors at a zoo in Taiyuan, China!
