It was a terrible day when Dennis' mom was killed by a fox. How could the baby survive without his mother? Dennis was less than a week old and would have died if it wasn't for Fred, the Labrador retriever. Fred ran right over to Dennis and began to lick his muddy face. Since then, Dennis follows Fred everywhere. They snuggle together at night. Dennis loves to climb up on Fred. They love to go swimming together too and they are always playing together. Dennis and Fred live on the grounds of Mountfitchet in England.
