This video shows just how Big and brave even the tiniest dogs can be. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I feel sorry for the mountain lion, and glad that the dogs and the family are safe.

I am glad the little dogs were so brave, but I agree, Keep them and your daughter out of harms way. By the way, I am sure that the mountain lion was there before you moved to that area. Do we just kill anything that gets in the way of our desire to "live in the mountains?." Wild animals deserve to live as well. We have encroached on their territory.

My understanding of the video is the dogs wanted out. The owner was unaware that the Mountain lion was there.

If you love your dog, you would never let it near such a ferocious predator. That encounter could have had a very tragic result for all three little dogs and the massively ignorant owner. We are supposed to love and protect our animals. She was lucky they are all still alive. I have mini dachsies and I would NEVER let them anywhere near such a lethal predator. They can alert by barking but then it is up to me as their human to take action and protect my dogs.

I too felt sorry for the poor mountain lion who obviously proved it had no intention of hurting those little puppies. Being on unfamiliar turf is no fun! My little guys instinctively know when they should back off, but having said that, they know no strangers - everyone is their friend - big or small. Love happy endings.

A dog by its nature is protective. They will give their life to protect those they love. I asked a vet once why a little dog would attack my big dog. The vet's response was that dogs can't see size. They see another dog but can't determine its size. I assume the mountain lion wasn't wasn't aware they were small dogs. The bark was loud enough. It could have been 3 wolves.

My cocker spaniels are affraid of their own shadows. Any sudden sounds or movements, they yelp and run.
I would NEVER let them go in harms way. Only last week one of my cocker spaniels
Emmie spotted a praymanthis
walking along a doggie path and began to freak out. I sure know how to pick out MY bravehearts, but I love them.

I understand what you mean. However, the coyote incident could not have been anticipated by anyone. We live in a nice suburb and have a securely fenced yard, which is always gated and locked. I still can't imagine how the coyote got into the yard. My boys never go out alone after dark: I am leary of possums, raccoons, and hawks (in the daytime). We do have a couple of natural ponds and I assume the coyote knew we had water so figured out how to get in for his last drink.

Kudos to those little dogs with the obvious lion hearts!! Raspberries to the dumb owner! I have 4 Shepherds who have alerted me to bears and lions both. I NEVER allow them to go in harms way no matter the size, even when the bear tried to come into the house.

And, then, there is my little Shih Tzu who held a coyote at bay until we could get to him. Our bigger dog was standing alongside little Max, clearly amazed at what he saw. Of course, I scooped both of them up and took them inside while calling for help. The coyote was afraid to move out of the corner Max had backed him into. I think a dog's bravery is often inversely proportional to its size.

That is so wrong to let your pet no matter what size it is to stay in harms way..I agree with LadyParis on this one.
What was she going to do.. video the cat killing her poor dogs ?? Shame Shame on her..
