The Unbelievable Survival Story of One Loyal Guard Dog in the California Wildfires




After the Camp Fire raged through Northern California, destroying thousands of acres of homes and property, animal rescuers were among the first boots on the ground in the reconstruction effort, seeking out pets who had survived the state’s deadliest wildfire to date.

One incredibly brave dog named Madison, who proved himself to be quite a challenge to recover, quickly became a favorite of K9 Paw Print Rescue.

“I had sighted Madison a few times deep in the Canyon BUT knew he took his job seriously and wasn’t going to be an easy catch,” wrote rescuer Shayla Sullivan in a comment on the viral Facebook post that shares Madison’s amazing story. Unable to capture Madison, Shayla frequently visited the area to leave food and water for the evasive dog.

Madison’s owner, Andrea Gaylord, was forced to evacuate her Paradise, California home after the Camp Fire broke out early in November, according to The Hill. Gaylord must have been utterly heartbroken as she was left unable to access her home and rescue Madison herself.

Madison, however, is an Anatolian Shepherd, a steady, reserved dog bred to guard livestock against any threat. “Their instinctual job is to watch the flocks and we’re part of them,” Gaylord said of this powerful breed. “It’s a comforting feeling.”

In spite of his home being burned to the ground and his family nowhere to be seen (or sniffed out!) amazing Madison sat and waited for them to return for an entire month!

Sullivan, who had found Gaylord’s other dog, Miguel, a whopping 87 miles away in Citrus Heights, had the idea of placing an article of clothing that would smell like Gaylord at the site “to keep Madison’s hope alive until his people could return.”

“I’m so HAPPY to report that Andrea was allowed to return to her property today and THERE MADISON WAS!!!! He had stayed to protect what was left of his home, and NEVER gave up on his people,” Sullivan announced in her comment. “I’m so happy I’m crying as I write this! He didn’t give up through the storms or the fire! A LOOOOONG month it must have been for him!

“Imagine the loyalty of hanging in through the worst of circumstances and being here waiting,” Gaylord said, praising Madison. “You could never ask for better animals.”

“I am sure as more people return the Furr Babies that survived the fire WILL know their people are back,” Sullivan excitedly concluded in her comment. “Here’s to many more reunions ahead! Keep the HOPE alive!”

Single Mom Who Lost Job During Lockdown Gives Lottery Winnings To Cop Shot In The Line Of Duty



With nearly endless coverage of all the chaos and violence bombarding us on network news, not to mention the whole fight over mask mandates, coronavirus safety measures, and everything else happening in the world, it can be easy to think there’s no goodness left in the world. Of course, as long as Jesus Christ is on the throne we know that’s not true, but sometimes, you just need to be reminded that He’s still at work in the world around us. And He is, folks. He truly is. That’s why we need to hear stories like the following. Apparently, a single mom who lost her job during the lockdown over coronavirus, has donated lottery winnings to a police officer that was shot in the line of duty. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Shetara Sims lost her job amid the coronavirus pandemic and had $7 to her name, local outlet WITN reported Tuesday. She found a $1 bill in a grocery store parking lot, bought a scratch-off ticket, and won $100. Her daughter, Rakiya Edmonson, suggested they donate the money to an officer who was shot on the job on July 2 and remains in the intensive care unit. “She won $100, and I said we should donate it to the police officer that got shot for his family to go eat and see him,” Edmonson said. Sims agreed with her daughter and said she was motivated to donate because of the empathy officers had shown her following her sister’s 2012 murder. Sims went on to discuss how detectives were really there for her and her family during that difficult season of life. “The detectives were really there for us. They were there for us more than anyone I can imagine. They did things they didn’t have to…

Craft Beer Customers Leave Unopened Can of Pale Ale on Bar for Fallen Soldiers

The gesture did not go unnoticed.

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.
