A dog from Royal City, Washington is one lucky penny!
A seven month old Vizsla named Penny ran away from her owner’s office on December 19th. A semi-truck driver found her, picked her up and traveled with her across the country to Pittsburgh. He dropped her off at an animal clinic where she was scanned her for a microchip, and it was then her owners were discovered.
The clinic found a nearby animal rescue group willing to pick up the dog and take her to Baltimore.
From Baltimore, Alaska Airlines then flew her home for free! She arrived at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Friday night, much to the delight of her owners!
THIS IS PROOF AS TO WHY YOU SHOULD MICROCHIP YOUR PETS!
Here’s the first stupid social media trend of the year. People are posting videos where they suck down helium . . . then BURP. So if all goes well, the burp is extremely high pitched.
Be warned: if you breathe in TOO much helium, you deprive your body of oxygen and could pass out, which is dangerous. So, if you do decide to try it, BE CAREFUL!

Check out seven tips for sticking to your New Year’s resolutions . . .
1. Only make one resolution. Don’t stretch yourself too thin by trying to change every little thing you think is wrong. You have a better chance of sticking to a resolution when you focus on just ONE thing.
2. Don’t pick a resolution you’ve failed at in the past. If you make a resolution to go to the gym every day, year after year, and it NEVER happens, choose something else. Continually re-doing a past resolution just sets you up for frustration and failure.
3. Create mini goals. Break your resolution into smaller steps, and make mini goals that you can celebrate along the way.
4. Write down your achievements. Keep a handwritten journal or track the progress you’ve made on your phone or computer.
5. Treat yourself. Give yourself a small reward whenever you reach a mini goal to keep yourself motivated.
6. Get support. Tell your friends and family about your goals . . . they can give you support when you’re thinking about giving up.
7. Expect that you’ll slip up. You’ll revert to your old habits from time to time, but treat it as a temporary setback rather than a reason to give up altogether.
