美国近日将破天荒为一只狗举行追悼会,会上还有300只猫出席,以表扬其生前救猫有功。
据美联社12日报道,西伯利亚雪橇犬和史纳莎犬混种的狗“金尼”于今年8月去世,终年17岁。作为长岛南岸小猫营救组的成员,“金尼”救援了数百只被遗弃、虐待或受伤的猫。
“金尼”最著名的一次救援行动发生在一个建筑工地,它勇敢地向一个笔直的管子扑了过去,解救了不慎掉进管子里的猫。甚至有一次,它不顾自己爪子有伤,从一个装满碎玻璃的盒子中救出了一只受伤的小猫。
为纪念这只“英雄”犬,纽约威彻斯特县将于11月19日为它举行追悼会。“金尼”的主人冈萨雷斯说:“自从领养‘金尼’开始,我从没有训练过它。但它仿佛有神奇的力量,知道猫何时遇上困难,而且猫也喜欢与它在一起。”现在,冈萨雷斯一直在训练其他狗,希望它们能像“金尼”一般“侠肝义胆”。

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – This will probably be the first time a dog’s memorial service is attended by 300 cats.
A schnauzer-Siberian husky mix named Ginny will be eulogized Nov. 19 at the Westchester Cat Show, where she was named Cat of the Year in 1998 for her uncanny skill and bravery in finding and rescuing endangered felines. She died in August at age 17.
Ginny once threw herself against a vertical pipe at a construction site to topple it and reveal the kittens trapped inside. Another time she ignored the cuts on her paws as she dug through a box of broken glass to find an injured cat inside.
Her owner, Philip Gonzalez of Long Beach, said Thursday that he has tried to train other dogs to rescue cats like Ginny, but "They just didn’t have it.
“I didn’t train her,” he said.”Ginny was just magical in a way. I adopted her from a shelter, and they said she’s never been with cats before. But she just had this knack of knowing when a cat was in trouble.”
As he used to do with Ginny, Gonzalez still goes out every night to feed stray cats in the area. The cats seem to miss Ginny too, he said.
“They want nothing to do with my other dogs,” he said. “They used to come up to Ginny and rub against her, even if I was putting food out.”
