HUCK THE ROOF DOG GOES VIRAL
The Internet is falling in love with an adorable dog named Huckleberry who likes to spend his time perched on the roof his owner's house.
Huckleberry lives in Austin, Texas, and went viral after Sarafina Nance spotted him sitting on the roof of the house and tweeted a photo of him with the caption, "I just saw the bravest, most glorious pupper of all time perched majestically on a roof!"
Naturally, anyone seeing #HuckTheRoofDog might be concerned about the pooch's safety, but his owner posted a note on the front of the house explaining that he is perfectly safe.
The note reads, "Don't be alarmed! Huckleberry is living up to his name and learned how to jump on our roof from the back yard. We never leave him in the back yard without someone being at home. He will not jump unless you entice him with some food or a ball! We appreciate your concern but please do not knock on our door... we know he's up there! But please feel free to take pictures of him and share with the world!" (UPI)
WOMAN SURPRISES HER MOM BY GRADUATING THREE YEARS EARLY
48-year-old Serena Majeski of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has been working toward her bachelor’s degree in business administration on and off for years, all while working full time. Serena told her mother, Judy, that she was on pace to finish in three years – but ended up surprising her by graduating three years early.
Serena secretly took full-time course loads and accelerated classes to speed up the process.
Then, she invited Judy to a mother-daughter luncheon. Except … it wasn’t just a luncheon. It was a graduation ceremony, which not only featured Serena walking across the stage to receive her diploma, but also featured Serena giving the commencement address to her class.
Serena admitted that she – at age 48 – is “not your typical college graduate.” But, she was happy to finish school and was inspired by her mother’s work ethic and commitment to family.
And, on that special graduation day, the two were able to celebrate the victory together. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
OFFICER DONATES KIDNEY TO 8-YEAR-OLD BOY
Thanks to the power of social media, a police officer in Milton, Wisconsin, is donating a kidney to an 8-year-old boy.
Jackson Arneson was in need of a kidney, so his mom Kristi wrote a request on Facebook, explaining the situation. The message was forwarded and sent around and ended up in front of Officer Lindsey Bittorf.
Lindsey said she knew immediately upon seeing the post that she would get tested – and also knew she’d be a match. Being a police officer and mom were both big factors in her decision.
The transplant is scheduled for this summer, and Lindsey is excited to give the gift of relief to Jackson’s mom so she no longer has to worry about his health. (Police One)
