Good News: Dads, Husbands, and National Puppy Day

Here are a few more good news stories making the rounds . . .

1.  A cow escaped from a slaughterhouse in New York on Tuesday and won its freedom.  Footage of it blew up online, and an animal sanctuary in New Jersey stepped in.  So now it’ll live out the rest of its life on a farm.  (Here’s a video.)

2.  A 41-year-old mom in Ohio recently enrolled in college to keep a promise to her husband, who died in Iraq 18 years ago.  He told her she was the smartest person he knew, and made her promise she’d go back to school someday.

She enrolled at Bowling Green State in the fall of 2020 . . . finished her four-year degree in less than three years . . . and she’s set to graduate next month.  She even joined a SORORITY, because it was something she always wanted to do.

3.  How cool is this?  A 66-year-old dad in England took a photo of his son every day for 30 YEARS, and just posted a video montage.  It starts when he’s a baby, and ends on his 30th birthday.  (Here’s the video.  It looks like his son took over the picture-taking at some point.)

4.  And finally, happy National Puppy Day, everyone!  Here are a few stories for it that have been making headlines . . .

Firefighters in Georgia recently saved a small dog that climbed into the engine compartment of someone’s car.  (Here are some photos.)

A dog that people thought was “too ugly” to get adopted from a shelter in Florida finally found her forever home.

And one more:  Early in the pandemic, a woman in West Virginia got an eight-week-old poodle as a sort of therapy dog to help her de-stress.  Now he’s becoming an ACTUAL therapy dog, and visiting schools and hospitals.
