A bachelor party usually consists of guys drinking, talking, bonding and having a good time with one another.
But when this group of friends decided to go to an isolated cabin retreat in the woods, the unexpected happened.
As soon as they arrived at the cabin, one of the guys’ dogs immediately started sniff around. Once the dog had picked up a scent, they all watched as she took off into the distance.
As they went to follow her, they found something that completely changed their plans for the weekend.
Everyone knows that dogs have strong noses. One thing that worries a lot of dog owners is that once a dog picks up a scent, they will follow it for miles on end.
It’s always best to keep up with them, and hope that they don’t get into trouble before you can catch up to them.
They didn’t think any harm would come from bringing the dog along on their trip. They couldn’t have known that it would change their entire weekend and all of their plans.
Even though things didn’t go according to plan, they would never want to change a thing. So what did they find?
No one had any problems with their friend’s dog joining them. But they were all surprised when suddenly rushed off into the woods as soon as they got there.
Her owner was confused, it was unlike her to just run off like that.
They lost her, but eventually they all caught up to her after minutes of calling her name. She was behaving differently.
She was fixated on a metal boat that was turned upside down. She seemed to be interested in what was underneath it. She refused to leave it alone.
The men took a second to catch their breath before they tried pulling her away from the boat. They expected her to give in and to go back to the cabin with them so they could start their bachelor party.
But she refused to leave the boat.
All her attention was on the boat, she completely ignored the guys. She was whining and circling around the boat. She was scratching at it and trying to life it with her snoot.
It was obvious that she wanted what was under the boat. But what was it?
The men started to grow curious. They also wanted to see what was under the boat. The dog’s owner approached the boat and began gently flipping it over.
That’s when they found something that made them jump.
Under the boat were abandoned kittens. They couldn’t believe the dog had smelled them from so far away and lead them all the way over to them.
She wanted the men to find the kittens.
But what had happened? How long the poor kittens had been stuck under the boat for remained a mystery. And whether the tiny kittens had been abandoned by their mother or if their mother had passed away, it was impossible to tell.
But the group of men knew that they had to do something!
The men dropped to their knees and inspected the kittens. No matter what the answers to the mysteries were, the good news was that the kittens were not only in good health but, thankfully, they seemed to be in good shape still.
In fact, the little balls of fluff seemed to be as healthy as kittens who lived in loving homes.
Normally, when you think of cats and dogs together, you picture fights, chases, and general chaos. And, even more surprisingly, this particular dog had never met a cat before.
So the men were amazed to see that, instead of chasing them, the dog seemed to be absolutely crazy about their adorable and furry little rescues.
The dog instantly began to fuss over the kittens. It was clear that her maternal instincts had kicked in and she was focused on caring for the kittens as if they had been her own pups.
On top of that, the kittens didn’t hesitate to walk up to the dog as if they were old friends.
Then, the dog started to lick and bathe the kittens, cleaning the dirt from their fur. When the men lifted up the boat, the kittens’ eyes widened in amazement as they saw the big forest around them.
The men knew that the dog that they had brought along for their trip had certainly saved them from a more unpleasant fate!
Now, the only question was what to do with the kittens. The men decided that since they had enough provisions, they would take them back to the cabin and give them a proper meal.
The dog walked proudly beside the men as if she knew the enormity of what she had done for the helpless kittens.
The group of friends had intended to make burgers and hotdogs for dinner, but they quickly realized that that was exactly what the kittens needed — meat. They prepared a huge bowl of hamburger meat for their little rescues and watched them happily tuck in.
The dog who had found them also received some meat scraps as a reward– after all, she had earned it!
After waiting around the spot where the kittens were found, the men quickly realized that the mother wasn’t coming back for her kittens. They had no choice but to take matters into their own hands.
It was decided that the first thing the men needed to do was take the kittens to a vet to make sure that there were no health issues.
The vet checked the kittens over and was astounded. He gave them a clean bill of health after numerous tests – just to be sure. The vet and the men were amazed that the kittens were in such good condition, especially given the circumstances and where they were found.
But there was more good news for these two lucky kittens…
Shortly after the trip to the vet, both kittens were adopted by two of the group! It was the perfect ending to an eventful weekend. Although the men had to change their plans, they were grateful that they were able to save two lives that day.
The men enjoyed each other’s company, celebrated a bachelor party, and went home with two brand-new family members!
