This was in the newspaper the other day, there was this dog that was born without his front legs, and all of a sudden one day he pops up and starts walking like we do. I thought that was funny and wanted to share it with yall. It said that they think he learned how to walk upright by watching humans walk upright. Here lately I have a differant outlook on Animals, and now i wonder what else could be taught to them

I saw a dog like that on TV a while back. It's just amazing the obstacles they can overcome. And not nearly the complaining that people do! lol Our pets are wonderful creatures that deserve lots of respect, and should be treated like the sentient beings they are.

All animals are a lot smarter than we give them credit for, I think because not a lot is made out of the clever things that animals can do we do not think about it much. But that is amazing, that he could learn to do that, brilliant.

Dogs are smart. I have seen dogs that have all 4 legs get up and walk on two legs so I could see this happening with a dog that was born with the defect he probaly thinks it is normal. Way to go little pup.

Since this dog doesn't know any better, it just found it's own way to get around. I think that's great!

Wow that was very bad luck for the dog but may be gods want to test some people so much that some animals or humans born with such disability. I saw one dog which is not having one back leg but still dog is very agile with 3 legs.. This dog lost its leg because of butcher, who got anger when this dog stolen a chicken from the shop and the butcher throwed his knife on the dog and it cut the leg..
