Tribune reader Hope Scott has introduced us to an unusual dog named King. King, who lives in California, belongs to friends of the Oak Hill woman and he’s becoming quite the media star. A few years ago, King made the newspapers in California after he swallowed a ring belonging to his human that cost upward of $10,000. This time, however, King’s star is shining brightly simply because he’s a great helper. Caring for a motherless kitten who is too young to be weaned is a busy proposition and one day King’s owner found herself short of hands. Needing to run into another room momentarily, she solicited King’s help to keep an eye on the little one. Shortly returning to the kitten, the woman found King bottle feeding little Meow. It will be interesting to see what King does next.
