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.)
