    Yeah, today's shit-show was horrendous. Oksana didn't let a thing drop, Howard went full-retard on the interview, the guy from Scrubs was a snoozer, Richard taking beer up the ass. . . . why do I do this shit to myself?

    But then this story emerged. It's a story about the OK tornado. An old fat woman, Barbara Garcia, is being interviewed amongst the incredible rubble of her home. She describes going into the bathroom with her dog, Brownsey, to ride out the storm. Her house got obliterated. After the twister ripped her house apart, she found herself on the ground, uninjured, but her dog no where to be found.

    And then the news crew saw the pooch under some debris. The woman weakly pulled the debris off the uninjured dog. Old woman reunited with her pooch. "I thought God granted one prayer by letting me survive and now he answered both."

    No tears from me, but damn close.

    One tear rolled down my face. When I hear about animals and kids dying or injured, I get a little angry and choked up. Great post.

    What gets to me with this story is the old woman is probably a widow. The one bit of consistent company she has is that dog. Her friends are dying, her kids are moved out, doing their own thing, but the one thing she can count on every day is her dog, Brownsy.

    It's heart-warming to see her reunited with her friend amongst the disaster surrounding her. It also reminds me of how many other people, in similar circumstances, had no such miracles happen to them. Sad, heartwarming, so much all at once.

    Sidebar: If I were the cameraman, I'd have to drop the camera and help that woman with the dog. Bad move as a cameraman, I'd be fired or something, but damn. I don't know how these news people turn their emotions off in shit like that.

    the story on the net is "God heard her prayers" so God heard her prayer to look for her dog but ignored the prayers from the people that died...

    Am I the only one that was waiting for a firetruck to hit the dog at the end of the video?

    A much happier story than this...

    you know, we don't like talkin' about it much
    but it was that following winter
    that little Bobby took ill.
    and they don't allow dogs at the hospital
    so back home you'd find Stains on Bobby's bed.
    I'll never forget the day Doc called
    and gave us the bad news about Bobby
    out of the corner of my eye
    I saw Stains lift his sad little dogface from Bobby's pillow.
    Somehow he knew that Bobby was gone
    and I swear to the good lord
    that Stains was hearing Bobby calling out to him one more time from heaven
    he just sorta smiled, crossed his paws like he was prayin'
    put his head on the pillow..........and passed away.


    Come Stains! Come Stains!
    I still can hear him calling, Come Stains!
    Come Stains! Come Stains!
    I still can hear him calling, Come Stains!
