If that headline sounds weird, it's because it is. But who isn’t a sucker for adorable animal stories? Last week, a story surfaced about eight dachshund puppies who were found in a plastic container in Arkansas. Abandoned.

But then they were rescued by the Rocky Ridge Refuge and got a foster mom — in the form of a giant capybara named Cheesecake.

If you haven’t heard of a capybara, they’re the biggest rodent in the world (bigger than a beaver or a porcupine!) and they’re oddly endearing. So capybara + dachshund puppies = OMG so cute. This week, we got to see Cheesecake and the puppies in action with a video! Enjoy.
