In Mexico, a Nativity scene was put on display featuring holiday figurines. Then, a stray dog decided to claim the manger as her own. Locals soon discovered that the dog had given birth to a litter of puppies and had chosen the manger as a safe place for them.
The community rallied around the new canine family, and animal advocates stepped in to ensure their long-term care. The mother dog and her puppies were eventually given up for adoption, and the mother was named Mili, meaning "miracle." The story has inspired citizens to become more aware of adopting strays and to love all dogs regardless of their background.
