It was a road less traveled by Jeff Kopp and his dog, Bobby.
But something inspired the pooch to take a different route down Marion Road on Monday in Diamond Lake, Michigan, and it's a good thing that Kopp obliged.
The dog pulled his owner to a satellite dish just three feet away from the dirt road where a newborn baby had been left.
"I saw what [looked like] a rabbit at first," Kopp told WOOD TV8. "Then it moved. That's when I started yelling."
The hours-old baby girl, whose umbilical cord was still attached, was laying in the fetal position with leaves on her face, according to Kopp's daughter Cathleen Neal, who ran to her father's aid along with his wife.
It's International Tiger Day, and some very special Internet stars are here to meow all about it.
Lil Bub, Princess Monster Truck, Pudge and more famous web moggies recently joined up with Greenpeace to create the video "Cats Save Tigers." Think of it as a "We Are the World" with more yowling.
In the clip, the kitties explain (with a little help from captions) that while tigers are the largest felines in the world, their numbers are rapidly declining. There are only 3,000 tigers left on Earth today, a depressing figure these cats hope to change.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to extraordinary adoptable pets every week. Today, meet Sebastian, a 1-year-old cat that was rescued from a feral cat colony earlier this year.
No one knows exactly how this sweet, social boy ended up in a cat colony, where felines tend to be far less socialized. It's believed he was somehow lost or dumped there, but in April he found his way to the Pound Animal Welfare Society of Montclair, New Jersey, and he hasn't looked back since.
This playful guy has found ways to keep busy while waiting for his forever home. "He will hang upside down on his cat condo for attention and to play," says Kristina Olszewski from PAWS. "He loves his feather toys and lives for his treats."
