Dog in Michigan takes care of 5 kittens

A dog in Michigan is the proud mother of five kittens.

The owner of Sydney, a Beagle-Terrier mix, brought the kittens home last week and it didn't take long for the dog's maternal instincts to kick in.

She is feeding and bathing the kittens. A veterinarian said this kind of relationship was impossible. Sydney already had three litters of her own but seems happier now to have little ones to look after again.
