Good News: Dog Beds, Retirement Homes, and Sewers

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

1.  This is like the opposite of a cat in a tree:  Firefighters in Wisconsin recently rescued a pigeon from a sewer.  It’s not clear how it got in there.  They lifted a grate, and it flew off.

2.  A news station in San Antonio did a big profile on a 93-year-old woman who makes dog beds out of leftover fabric, and hands them out to animal shelters.  Her name is Joan Potters.  She says it makes her happy to know a random dog somewhere will be a little more comfortable.

3.  And speaking of dogs:  “The Detroit Free Press” just did a story on a dog in northern Michigan that kept escaping from a shelter . . . and breaking into a retirement home.  So the retirement home adopted him.

His name is Scout and it happened in 2017, but he’s still there.  Residents love him, because having a dog around makes it feel like they’re back home again.

Earlier this year, staff held a fundraiser for the shelter to thank them for accidentally giving their residents a comfort dog. (Here’s a photo.)
