DOG RESCUED AFTER ESCAPING FROM ANIMAL HOSPITAL
A very smart dog who was not at all interested in being stuck in an animal hospital opened several doors to escape – only to be recaptured and returned to safety.
A 10-year-old Great Pyrenees named General left from a back door of the facility at around 4 in the morning. Surveillance video actually shows the dog opening several doors inside the clinic in order to make his great escape.
General's owner, Travis Campbell, said he was eventually located after he was found curled up under a tree outside of a home in the neighborhood.
Travis explained that General is very special and a smart dog. He says he actually told the animal hospital that General loved the outdoors and would make an escape attempt, but the staff probably didn’t take the warning seriously enough.
General’s breakout was also probably motivated by his love for his family. At home, General is surrounded by six kids who love him and treat him like a brother – which was enough of a reason for him to make run for it. (WRC-TV)
SOCCER CLUB DONATES HUNDREDS OF POUNDS OF FRESH VEGGIES TO FAMILIES IN NEED
Last month, the Kickers Soccer Club in the Santa Ynez Valley of California convinced friends, family, and other members of the community to donate 450 pounds of fresh produce to those in need.
Well, those people delivered on their promise and showed up with their fruits and vegetables, which the Kickers Soccer Club presented to a local charity – the People Helping People Food Program.
From there, the People Helping People Food Program was able to offer those hundreds of pounds of healthy food to nearby families in need.
Amazingly, the People Helping People Food Program provides over 270,000 pounds of food to those in need each year -- and has a goal of providing 60% of that food as fresh fruits and vegetables. (Santa Ynez Valley News)
DOG HELPS PRO GOLFER WIN BIG TOURNAMENT
Over the weekend, pro golfer Sergio Garcia won The Masters golf tournament for the first time, which was – by far – the biggest win of his long career.
During interviews after the victory, Sergio gave credit for his success to a more positive attitude on the course, a more mature outlook on his life, and his supportive fiancée.
But in the last day or two, golf fans have suggested that everyone has been missing an obvious good luck charm – Sergio’s black Pomeranian named Bear.
It seems the only other tournament that Bear traveled to before The Masters was a contest last year that Sergio also won.
That means Sergio is undefeated when Bear is around … which really means, Bear is undefeated.
We will see if Sergio is paying attention. If he is, we might see Bear at Sergio’s next tournament in June. (Golf Digest)
