Meet the new mayor — a three-legged dog

A three-legged dog beat out a three-legged cat in the race for mayor of the town — Divide, Colorado.

Twenty-five dogs and cats entered the race, with each vote they received bringing in a one dollar donation to the local animal shelter, KKTV in southern Colorado reports.

In the end, elections officials report, it came down to a race between Spright, a small female mixed breed, and Walter the cat.

Spright received 4,755 votes; Walter racked up 4,213. Combined with other votes cast, the election raised $14,084 for the Teller County Regional Animal Shelter.

Divide is an unincorporated town on the north slope of Pikes Peak.

Spright’s two-year term will begin with an official inauguration ceremony at noon Sunday at the Teller County Regional Animal Shelter at 308 Weaverville Road in Divide. There will be a BBQ cookout for all candidates and the public.

Laska the Dog Plays Mom to Two Baby Boars

Call it motherly instinct: A dog named Laska in Hamburg, Germany, has taken to two tiny wild boar babies, after both were found abandoned in nearby forests. Walkers separately spotted the pint-sized females, now named Alice and Emma, and dropped them with the Heckers, a local family known for rehabilitating ailing creatures.

But this time, it wasn't the family members who nursed the animals to health; instead Laska, an Alsatian mix, stepped in and took charge. According to the U.K.'s Daily Mail, both Alice and Emma were severely malnourished, and too small to stay warm through the night. Realizing this, Laska made it her mission to keep them going, cuddling up to them in the evenings, cleaning them with her tongue and even picking them up when they topple over.

Since boars can grow to up to 200 lbs. as adults, the Heckers, who have ties to a local wildlife preserve, may have to give them up once they're bigger. But luckily for Laska, the babies still need her care — and she seems happy to oblige.
