It’s always such an exciting event to watch a close friend get married. While the wedding itself might be the highlight of the entire experience, we can’t forget about the celebrations that come even before that! Of course, there’s the bachelor party as well to look forward to. Anything could happen at events like this, making them all the more thrilling.
A Unique Bachelor Party
When people hear the words “bachelor party,” the image that probably comes to mind is a bunch of guys drinking, bonding, talking, and relaxing – basically just having a good time. One group of friends, however, decided to go to an isolated cabin in the woods for a retreat. They took a dog along with them and things took a really unexpected turn in no time.
The Start Of An Unforgettable Weekend
When they got to the cabin, they began unpacking and getting settled in. The dog, on the other hand, started to sniff around. All of a sudden, she picked up a scent and rushed off into the woods. Naturally, they went after her. They wanted to see where she was heading, but what they found completely changed their weekend plans.
A Dog’s Sense Of Smell
You do not have to be a dog owner to know that their sense of smell is really acute. Dog owners are quite familiar with this worrying scenario: after picking up a scent, a dog will charge off to follow it. The best thing owners can do is to try and keep up… hoping that their pets do not get into trouble before reaching them.
Did Not See It Coming
No one thought that anything would happen when they had decided to bring a dog with them to the cabin. The men never thought that this simple act would change their plans and their entire weekend. They might not have planned this and they certainly did not see it coming, but in the end, they would not change a thing. We bet you are wondering what exactly happened.
When one of the guys mentioned he was bringing his dog along for their trip, not one of his friends had an issue with the dog joining them. However, as soon as they got to the cabin in the woods, she surprised all of them by charging off into the distance without warning. In addition, her owner was perplexed… it was the first time she ever behaved like this!
Catching Up To Her
The guys ran after the dog but she had disappeared. After they searched and called for her, they finally found her. However, she was behaving really oddly. The dog appeared to be fixated on a particular metal boat that had been stowed on land. Even though it was upturned, she seemed like she wanted to see what was under the boat. She just would not leave it alone.
Transfixed By The Boat
After taking a couple of minutes to catch their breath, the men tried to pull the dog away from the boat that she was really transfixed by, hoping to go back to the cabin and resume their bachelor party. However, despite trying their best to coax the dog away, she refused to leave the upturned vessel.
Laser-focused on the boat the dog totally ignored the group of friends. Whining and circling the boat, she kept pawing it and used her snout to try and lift it, sniffing underneath it intently. Clearly, something under the boat had her attention. What could it be?
An Unexpected Sight
There was no way the friends were abandoning the dog. Her strange behavior was also now beginning to make them curious too. So, one of the guys – the dog’s owner —went near the boat slowly and flipped it over slowly. Soon, an unexpected sight greeted the group. They were so surprised and it made them jump!
The Reason For Her Unusual Act
A few kittens were under the boat. The dog had acted really strange because she had picked up the abandoned kittens’ scent. The guys could not believe that she had sensed the poor animals were there. They had been led straight to the kittens! Even though they had called her, she refused to leave. She waited for the guys to find the helpless animals.
They were wondering what had happened. It remained a mystery as to how long the kittens had been under the boat for and whether the poor animals had been abandoned by the mother cat or if the mother had died. They had more questions to which they did not know the answer but the group of friends knew they needed to do something!
In Good Health
Dropping to their knees, the guys inspected the kittens. Whatever the answers to their questions were, the good thing is that the kittens were in good health. Thankfully, they appeared to be still in good shape. As a matter of fact, the little fluffy balls seemed to be equally healthy with kittens that lived in loving homes.
Crazy About Cats
The expression “fight like cats and dogs” exist because normally, people think of these animals being engaged in chases, fights, and general chaos when they are together. However, this situation with this particular dog is even more surprising because she had not met a cat before. The guys were amazed to see that the dog was not chasing them, but rather, seemed to be totally crazy about the adorable, furry little rescues.
The dog instantly started to fuss over the tiny kittens. It was apparent her maternal instincts had taken over and she was very much focused on caring for them as if they were her own pups. Aside from that, the kittens had no hesitations in walking up to the dog. It was as if they were all old friends!
Giving Them A Bath
Then, the dog began licking and bathing the kittens, cleaning their fur. After the guys lifted the boat up, the eyes of the kittens widened in amazement when they saw the massive forest around them. The friends knew that the helpless animals had definitely been saved from an unpleasant fate by the dog they had brought together with them on the trip.
The Fate Of The Tiny Animals
The guys thought that they had enough provisions, so they decided they would take the kittens back to the cabin to give little ones a proper meal. Walking proudly beside the guys, the dog seemed to know that did a really big thing for the helpless kittens.
A Proper Meal
The friends had planned to make hotdogs and burgers for dinner, but they realized that the kittens needed that — meat. They then prepared a large bowl of hamburger meat and gave it to their little rescues. The guys watched the tiny animals happily tuck in. Of course, the dog that had found the kittens also got some meat scraps –she had earned it, after all!
No One Is Coming Back For Them
The guys waited around the area where the kittens had been found, but the friends quickly realized the mother was not coming back for the kittens. The guys did not have any choice, so they took matters into their own hands. They decided that they should first take the kittens to the vet to make sure there weren’t any health issues.
A Trip To The Vet
The kittens were checked over by a vet, who was astounded. He said they were quite healthy after having done numerous tests, of course. Both the vet and the guys were amazed the kittens were in such great health, especially given the circumstances. However, there was even more good news for the two lucky kittens…
A New Home
Not long after the visit to the vet, two of the guys in the group decided to adopt the kittens! The eventful weekend had the perfect ending. The men might have needed to change their plans, but they were grateful two lives were saved that day. The guys enjoyed each other’s company, were able to celebrate a bachelor party and added two brand-new members to their family!
