"Love is blind" and this dog does not care one bit what species these babies-in-need are. They might be tiger cubs, not puppies, but she is going to love them all the same!

One thing I have learned about baby animals is they don't seem to care if you're "predator" or "prey" as long as you're snuggly!
There seems to be some cross-species misunderstanding going on here. The puppies just want to cuddle, while their new friend the kid wants to play HEAD BUTT!
FYI this is how puppy bowling was invented.
A much less famous, but just as squee, story than "The Tortoise and The Hare".
