An interesting collection of articles

A stray puppy who adopted a Marine Unit in Afghanistan has made her way to the States, thanks to the help of "her" Unit and the fundraising efforts of hundreds of kids.

A lost puppy was found more than a week after its mother and siblings had been rescued from a storm drain.

In Seattle, a man's quick thinking probably saved his dog's life.

In Kirkland, a very determined Teacup Poodle decided to protect his family by chasing a bear up a tree.

This one isn't as much of a "feel-good" story as the others, but it is pretty astounding. A man was caught trying to smuggle 15 puppies into Singapore underneath the seats of his car.

Well, that's all for today! Have a great weekend, and I'll see you all again next week.


P.S.- If you're interested in supporting a local humane society, and enjoy funny "mockumentaries," the film "Worst in Show" is going to be screened tomorrow at 4pm in Seattle (check the details here). Ticket proceeds go to benefit the Seattle Humane Society. The movie is about the yearly contest to take home the coveted title of "World's Ugliest Dog."
