Vermont Family’s Home Goes Up in Flames. That’s When an Unlikely Hero Jumped Into Action.

Wonderful story!

A Vermont family’s home went up in flames over the weekend, and if not for the intervention of an unlikely hero, this story might have been a deadly tragedy.

According to the family, they owe their lives to their faithful, lovable pet boxer, “Cain,” who managed to wake them up after a fire broke out in the house.

This, ladies and gentlemen is why we call dogs “man’s best friend.”

“A couple minutes later we would have been almost covered with flames,” said 10-year-old Mason Sheltra.

Just hours after finishing his trick-or-treating, Mason’s home caught fire.
“My dog woke my dad up, and then my dad woke me up, and I jumped off my bed and ran downstairs,” Mason said.

The family made it out of the house safely, thanks to their four-legged friend.
The fire department chief said the fire started on the front of the house and spread up into Mason’s room and to the attic.

The smoke detectors in the home didn’t go off right away because the fire started outside. That made Cain’s barking all the more important.

But the Sheltras also had some help from a neighbor.

“I was driving down the street to take my son to day care, and saw the flames,” Ana Anderson said.

As Cain was alerting the family inside, Anderson pulled into the Sheltras’ driveway, leaned on her car horn and called 911.

As if we all needed another reason to love our four-legged friends, right? This is a prime example of how God can work through literally anything or anyone in order to watch over His creation.

God created dogs as special companions for mankind and this is a fine example of the love and dedication they often to the table.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
