You've heard the expression: "Look what the cat dragged in?"

In Iowa, a dog named Reagan came home with what appeared to be an empty bag of cat food in his mouth and whined until his owner opened it.

Inside the owner found two tiny living kittens - three others inside the bag had been killed, run over by cars on a highway.

Someone had sealed the litter of kittens into the bag of Meow Mix and dumped them on a road.

An animal rescue group took in the little survivors, naming them Tipper and Skipper. They were so tiny they had to be bottle fed every few hours but their prognosis is very good.

Reagan, the canine Good Samaritan, is getting well-deserved kudos - and we hope, an extra bisquit or two - as an animal hero.
