The Owl And The Pussy Cat

Remember that old nonsense rhyme about The Owl and the Pussy Cat? The pair started out by going to sea together and ended with dancing by the light of the moon.

Stray Dog Keeps Missing Boy From Freezing

It was just last year that seven-year-old Raul Kutliakhmetov of Siberia discovered that his favorite stray dog -- the one he would play with on occasion -- had fallen into a service shaft. He ran home, had a bite to eat, changed  clothes, and return to try to rescue the feral mutt. Instead of playing the hero he fell 9 feet down the shaft and became a second victim of the open hole. With the temperature dipping down to just 14° Fahrenheit, he was in serious trouble, but his faithful friend kept him warm for 72 hours until help finally arrived.
