Dog has kitten

A dog has become a local celebrity in a Chinese village after she reportedly gave birth to a kitten.


Hua Chengpeng, of Huayang village, Jiangyan city, told People's Daily that the unlikely animal was the third 'puppy' in his pet's litter.
"The first two puppies the dog produced were both normal, but when the third baby came, the whole family was very surprised to see a cat-like creature. It is a cat, not a dog at all," he said.
Local residents have been flocking to his house to see the 'kitten' which local vets say is really a puppy which looks like a cat because of a gene mutation. It apparently yaps like a puppy.
Hua says his son brought the dog home from Liaoning city, where he had been working, a year ago.

I might just be a tad suspicious, but don't you think that the puppies look a bit big and dry to be as newborn as the kitten looks. I wouldn't like to be negative, but could it be a hoax. The kitten looks wet and new, the pups look a fair size and the mother doesn't look like she owns them??? I mean they look too big for her, but I don't know anything about what kind of dog she is (looks like a Pekenese), they just look like bigger puppies than a dog that size would have. I could be wrong though, wouldn't be the first time. LOL:confused
