This was cute. I especially loved the dog running thru the pastures with the baby bottle in his mouth, looking to feed a hungry lamb. With that being said, however, I don't agree with the kitten with the young pigs. she could get seriously hurt by them. Don't tell me she'd think they were her littermates when they have no fur. In the photo, she looks as if saying: "Get me out of here!" I felt sorry for the poor dog with the bush baby digging its claws into the dog's head all the time. In the story of the dog and the baby bunnies, I felt the human mother should have waited to see if the rabbit mother returned to the nest for her babies before disturbing the nest. In the story the cow & the lambs, the cow looks like she's starving; you can see her ribs!
