Good News: Cute Cats, Wet Dogs, and a Much-Needed Hug

Here are a few more Good News stories making the rounds . . .

1.  A police department in Kansas posted a 20-second video after a guy got pulled over for speeding last month . . . was already having a rough day . . . and asked the cop for a hug.

They didn’t get into what he’s going through, but you can tell the cop really felt for him.  He hugged him and promised, “It’s gonna get better.”  (Here’s the video.)

2.  Springfield, Missouri held its annual “Dog Swim” charity event on Tuesday, where only dogs get to swim in a big public pool.  It’s always the last day before they drain the pool at the end of summer.  Dozens of people brought their dogs this year.  All the money raised will go to a nearby dog park.

3.  Two different cat stories are in the news:  Cops in Indiana saved a kitten that climbed up into a squad car’s engine compartment.  They named it “Dodge.”

And a couple in Alaska thought they lost their cat Leo when their entire house collapsed into a flooded river last month.  But Leo just showed back up 26 days later, totally fine.
