Abandoned dachshunds find a new mom in goofy looking mega-rodent3/16/2013
The mothering instinct transcends all barriers between the species. Dogs nursing tigers, cats nursing hedgehogs — we've pretty much seen it all.

So who stepped up? A giant rodent, that's who. Cheesecake is a capybara, an outsized guinea pig, that's taken in the pups as her own. And while Cheesecake is one weird looking critter, that doesn't matter in the slightest to the puppies. To them, she's just Mom. [Source]
