Dad lets 100lb Pit Bull sleep in crib with baby, only for captured footage to make headlines

Fear. It’s something we all have to deal with in different degrees. It can be a debilitating thing if you let it, and the fact that it’s a natural instinct makes it all the harder to ward off.

Of course, often our fears and concerns aren’t just limited to ourselves. When we have people we care greatly about – say, children, for example – we fear for them too.

Little Adalynn Leary, or Ady, to her family, knows a thing or two about being frightened. After a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit her hometown in Alaska, she developed issues when it came to falling asleep. She simply couldn’t go to sleep alone, and her family knew the situation wasn’t going to be solved simply by repeatedly sending her to bed on her own each night.

Fortunately, Ady found a way to adapt to and overcome her problem … with the help of the family’s reliable pit bull, Fury.

After a devastating earthquake hit Alaska, Kyle Leary and his family considered themselves fortunate to have escaped unscathed.

However, the repercussions of the event manifested themselves in their daughter, Ady, who developed anxiety and worry that meant she couldn’t sleep alone.

Scared to close her eyes without anyone lying beside her at night, Ady’s salvation would come in the form of the family’s pet pit bull, her “best friend and bodyguard”, Fury.

Kyle set up a camera to monitor Ady’s room while she slept, and the footage it captured was truly something special. In the film – which Kyle later uploaded to his Facebook account – Ady can even be seen ‘tucking in’ Fury, covering him with a blanket to make sure he’s warm.

The reaction to Kyle’s video was plentiful, though not everyone agreed with the idea of letting a 100lb dog sleep beside a toddler.

 

Even so, Kyle maintains that Fury is a part of the family, and would never cause pain or hurt to his daughter. He believes instead that as Ady grows up Fury will continue to protect and serve her.

As he says: “If you raise them with love, they only show love.”

Watch the beautiful video of Ady and Fury below:


Dogs are only as dangerous as you make them. It’s time we put an end to the idea that all pit bulls are bloodthirsty beasts.

A woman from Port Arthur, Texas, recently posted a Facebook update that has gone viral. It it, she explains that she ran out of gas on the way home from work, and was stranded on a busy road as trucks and cars passed her by.

She says many vehicles honked at her as she attempted to push her car down the road. Then everything turned around for her a group of soldiers and a kindhearted stranger saw her struggle. Read her post below.

Mary Mingo Williams

I just ran out of gas coming from my job at Savannah and 25th Street the light changed and the car stopped. I got out and started pushing my car nobody stopped to help me trucks passed by me. People had the nerve to blow their horn at me and they see me pushing this car. I don’t know where they came from but all of a sudden I had almost a platoon of army men they pushed my car literally from motiva Terminal Gate to the Citco station on Gulfway Drive.

Do you understand what I’m saying they pushed my car on their feet. When we got there I asked him can I please take your picture to let people know there are still young men in the world that will stop and offer their assistance to a woman in need. They said yes. At the gas station this man jumped out of his truck pulled $100 bill out of his wallet and offered it to them for them to go get themselves a meal.

They all said at the same time no sir we cannot accept that we were doing what we were raised to do. This same gentleman turned around and put gasoline in my car and told me keep the money that I had in my pocket. Man, when you are or child of God no matter what obstacles are placed in your way the Lord always has a ram in the bush. I thank each and everyone of you from the bottom of my heart……..

BLOOD MOON: This Sunday you can see a rare ‘Super Wolf Blood Moon’ and total eclipse – here’s how

This weekend half of the world will be able to witness a spectacular ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon‘ total lunar eclipse (a mouthful, we know), according to reports.

Forbes claim that Sunday night is the night to turn your eyes to the sky if you live in North and Central America, whereas for South America and large parts of Europe, the spectacle will occur in the early hours of Monday morning.

Fred Espenak, a retired NASA astrophysicist and eclipse expert, said: “It’s perfectly placed for the Americas and Western Europe, and we will see the entire event from start to finish.”

What does the blood moon mean?
For anyone else wondering what a ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon’ is (yes, you’re not alone in your confusion), the event will see the moon pass into the Earth’s outer penumbral shadow, losing its brightness.

After this, the moon will enter the inner, darker ‘umbral’ shadow of Earth and thereby begin to be eclipsed. This results in some of the moon turning red in colour.

Espenak advises using a pair of binoculars or a small telescope to watch the spectacle, though the partial phases can be seen by the naked eye.

Now, if haven’t got time to watch the whole thing, it’s the totality of the ‘blood moon’ that Espenak says is worth seeing. “The best part of the eclipse is during the 62 minutes of the total eclipse. The Moon is then bathed in a beautiful red hue produced by sunlight filtered through Earth’s atmosphere.”

As per AccuWeather, the first phase of the eclipse will begin at 9:36pm EST, though the totality phase (the exciting part) is expected to begin just before midnight and last for around an hour.

Sounds cool right?

11-year-old on period forced to bleed through clothes twice after teachers don’t let her use toilet

An 11-year-old girl from Bristol, U.K. was forced to bleed through her clothes at school whilst on her period, after being denied permission to go to the bathroom.

According to reports, the girl, a student at Cotham School, asked multiple times to leave the classroom and go to the toilet, but was told no.As a result, she was left feeling humiliated after bleeding through her clothes, not once but twice, and is now terrified to go to school whilst on her period.

The girl’s mother is naturally upset with how the school handled the situation, and doubts whether young girls at school are having their basic health needs taken care of adequately.

Speaking to Bristol Live, the mom, who remained anonymous to protect her daughter’s identity, said: “They should not be making young girls feel guilty because she needs to go to the bathroom and sort out her basic care. Now, she’s scared to go to school in case they won’t let her out of the classroom, that’s not what we should be teaching girls.

Backlash
“We should be allowing them to go as part of giving them the tools to achieve their goals whether they are on or off their period.”

Following the first incident – which took place in September of last year (2018) – the girl refused to go to school the next time she was on her period. Having been new at the school, the difficulty of the experience was further heightened, leaving the youngster with a problem she should never have been forced to face.

Fortunately, on that occasion she was wearing a jumper long enough to help conceal the stain, but her discomfort in having to sit in the same clothes for the rest of the day should not be underplayed.

“I couldn’t believe it. I rang the school and complained and they just said it would be okay and wouldn’t happen again. They seemed sorry it had happened but didn’t tell me how they would make sure it didn’t happen again,” her mom said.

“Then, in October she came on again and she was petrified of going to school. I rang to say I was keeping her off and the attendance lady said I couldn’t keep her off school for that reason. I understood that, but she was so worried in case it happened again. I was assured the teachers would be told and that if there any problems to get back in touch with her.”

However, it was to happen again. This time it was a male teacher who refused her request to go to the bathroom. He even threatened to remove her from his classroom if she didn’t stop asking.

“It shouldn’t have gotten as far as her having to bleed through her clothes not once but twice in the space of a few short months. Schools should be finding ways to help kids not traumatize them,” her mom said.

The school’s spokesperson offered only : “The school does have a policy not to allow students out of lessons for the toilet as part of our Safeguarding procedures. Students should not be out of lessons unsupervised. |

“However, as staff, we are all keenly aware that we have young girls in our care and that, on occasion, they will need to use the toilet outside of the usual break times.”

I don’t know what sort of teacher could say no to a child who is on her period, let alone twice!

Help us spread this message so that it hopefully never happens again! Share this article if you think it’s wrong.

Trash collectors are about to crush garbage when they hear screams coming from a bag

I’ve always been an animal person and worry about the many furry friends out on the street with no one to take care of them.

I find it hard to pass a dog without stopping the owner and asking if I can pet their lovable fur ball.But not everyone has the same love for animals and don’t want pets, which I can understand as you have to be an animal lover to commit to a pet.

But to feel so much hatred for animals that they have a need to hurt them is incomprehensible to me.In April 2017, two garbage men made a terrible discovery while on their rounds in Pennsylvania.

They had just thrown a pile of trash into the garbage truck and pressed the button for it to be crushed when they heard a scream.Fortunately, they managed to get the bag out out before it was crushed.They quickly opened it and discovered a gray cat tied up and completely covered in gasoline.

The cat was rushed to the nearest animal hospital. The vet realized how bad the cat’s condition was and immediately started working to save her.She was dehydrated, malnourished and was one of the worst cases of neglect the vet had seen.

Miracle Maisy
It was a while before the smell of gasoline left her but with nourishment, love and attention she began to regain her strength.She was named Miracle Maisy because it was a true miracle that she survived.

Take a look at the news clip below to learn more about this incredible rescue.

Airline Won’t Let Dad Board Plane With Baby, So Elderly Stranger Steps In: ‘You’re Coming With Me’

I love stories like this one. A woman opened her heart and home to a complete stranger when he had nowhere to turn.

Ruben Swift lives in Cleveland. He flew to Phoenix to pick up his newborn daughter, Ru-Andrea who was just four days old. Ruben had been granted custody of his baby girl, but a policy stipulated by Frontier Airlines says that an infant must be at least seven days old before they will be approved to fly.

Ru-Andrea was released from the hospital; he had a note to verify this, but the airline wouldn’t budge. They would need to wait three days before returning to Cleveland. This left the new father with a problem: they had no accommodations arranged.


Joy Ringhofer is a volunteer at Banner University Medical center where Ru-Andrea was born. Joy and Ruben met when Ruben arrived to pick up his little one.

“I was rocking her when her father came in, and we sort of made a connection right away,” Joy told CBS Phoenix affiliate KPHO.

Not knowing what else to do or where to turn, Ruben reached out to Joy. Her response surprised him. “I didn’t expect her to say, ‘I’m coming to get you and take you home.’ So, I’m thinking, ‘She is going to drive me back to Cleveland?’ But she actually brought me to her house and [is] feeding me and making sure my baby is alright,” Ruben said.

Father and daughter stayed with Joy for the next three days until they could fly home. “I had such a strong feeling that I needed to do this for him,” Joy said. “I know he was a kind and safe man to have in my home and he has been a perfect gentleman.”

“We’re two different colors, and she opened up her door, and it never was an issue. My color was never an issue,” Ruben said. “She loves my baby… My baby was with her all night. She stayed up with her. Who does that?”

Ru-Andrea and Ruben flew home, but Ruben promised to come and visit the woman he now considers family. “She’s fed me; she took care of me. She’s the grandmother to my child now. She looked after me,” the new dad said about his baby’s new “grandmother.” “I’m grateful.”

Stop Pouring Leftover Pickle Juice Down The Drain. Here Are 13 Unexpected Ways To Use It At Home

Pickle juice is usually an afterthought that ends up poured down the drain, but it has a multitude of secret uses – some of which you have probably never even thought of but will wonder how you ever lived without.

“Roughly one-third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year — approximately 1.3 billion tons — gets lost or wasted.”

Pickle juice is just going to add to that waste otherwise, so why not try one of the following ideas instead?

1. Make more pickles!
To make easy refrigerator pickles, put sliced cucumbers or other vegetables into your pickle juice and place the jar back in the fridge for a few days.

2. Relieve an upset stomach
Vinegar, a fermented food, is a well-known home remedy for an upset stomach, and it’s also one of the primary ingredients in pickle juice. The Washington Post notes that probiotics produced in fermented foods may improve digestion. Try a little bit the next time you have an upset stomach.

3. Treat a hangover
Pickle juice may help to replace electrolytes and fluids lost from a night of drinking. Don’t forget to drink water as well!

4. Add it to a drink recipe
Try TastingTable’s Pickleback or FoodieCrush’s pickle-infused vodka if you are looking for new drink combinations to liven up the taste buds.

5. Replenish electrolytes
According to Business Insider, pickle juice may be the new Gatorade. It contains electrolytes and is a fast way to replenish potassium and sodium levels. Consider bringing some along the next time you work out.

6. Reduce heartburn
It’s also really good at reducing heartburn according to a lot of people. Take a spoonful of pickle juice the next time you experience heartburn and see if it helps.

7. Treat a sunburn
They swear by this one over at The Kitchn. The writer who tried it claimed that there was instant relief and a cooling sensation once it was applied to sunburnt skin.

8. Perk up recipes
You can improve so many recipes with pickle juice! Add it to a bread recipe to give it some zing. Use it to marinate tofu or meat. Bring fries to life with extra flavor. You can even add it to butter to make it anything but plain.

9. Keep your sidewalk free of ice!
It can be used outside of the house as well! The salt content is high enough to melt ice and may help to keep your walkways clear. According to CNN, there are municipalities that have been trying it as an alternative to traditional road salting.

10. Eliminate bad breath
The healthy bacteria in pickle juice may help to eliminate bad odor-causing bacteria in your mouth.

11. Kill weeds in your garden
The vinegar in pickle juice can also help in gardening. The acidity is high enough to kill most weeds, and it may actually help with certain types of flowers, such as azaleas and rhododendrons, that require highly acidic soil.

12. Reduce muscle cramps
The salt from pickle juice is easily and quickly absorbed by our bodies, resulting in a faster reduction in muscle cramps than if you just had a glass of water.

13. Sooth a sore throat
Either gargle or drink a spoonful or two of pickle juice several times a day and you may notice an improvement in your sore throat thanks to the potent salt and vinegar combination.

14. Make copper pipes and pans shine
On the HGTV show Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna Gaines used pickle juice to clean up the copper around a house that they were renovating. It seemed to work really well!

Horse gives birth to incredibly rare filly – just wait until you see her face

Scott and Jackie Nelson are horse breeders in Melbourne, Florida. The couple has developed a reputation for the incredible paint horses they breed.The riding ranch owned by the couple is named Down Under Colour. Many of the horses raised by Jackie and Scott have won prizes at horse shows.

Despite the knowledge and experience, the couple has with horses they were more surprised recently by the birth of a filly. They named the filly Coconut.

Coconut was born with rare markings that once had great significance. In earlier times, he would have been designated a war horse. These horses were prized possessions to indigenous people.The medicine man is often mentioned in indigenous culture. The medicine man combined the elements of a spiritual guide and a priestly healer.

He was responsible for the mental and physical health of the tribe. The only type of horse the medicine man would ride is the warhorse.A warhorse is a pinto that possesses special markings. The pinto must be white in color and possess a small patch that covers the top of its head and ears.

The markings are referred to as either a ‘medicine hat’ or a ‘war bonnet.’ There are other characteristics that can increase the value of the warhorse.The warhorse must also have one blue eye. Indigenous tradition holds that the blue eye of the warhorse would transport the spirit of the medicine man to the Gods if he is killed in a battle.

The warhorse was believed by natives to have special powers. It was thought that a warhorse could keep the medicine man and tribe members safe from danger.Natives also believed that warhorses were capable of tracking game that would otherwise go undetected in the forest.

Natives would seek to steal warhorses from other tribes. They believed the warhorse contained the good magic of the tribe.They believed they could weaken rival tribes by stealing their warhorses. This tendency resulted in warhorses being closely guarded by tribes.

Jackie and Scott were frozen with shock upon first noticing Coconut was a warhorse. The couple shared the moment with the world through video. The footage has been shared 3 million times so far.

Man gets stopped by police and his Facebook post goes viral

Steven Hildreth Jr took to writing what had happened o him on his Facebook profile after he was pulled over by Tucson Police Department as he was driving.

Steven was driving with a broken headlight and thought that was the main reason for stopping him. However, the officer began straight away by asking him if he had any weapons. Steven Hildreth Jr. told him that he had a gun on his right hip and that he was a concealed carry permit holder.

Since Steven’s wallet that had his identity card in his back-right pocket, the officer told him that he had to be disarmed so that he can check it. Hildreth wanted everyone to know what happened on his Facebook profile.

Hildreth’s post has since been shared nearly 400,000 times
So, I’m driving to my office to turn in my weekly paperwork. A headlight is out. I see a Tucson Police Department squad vehicle turn around and follow me. I’m already preparing for the stop.

The lights go on and I pull over. The officer asks me how I’m doing, and then asks if I have any weapons.

“Yes, sir. I’m a concealed carry permit holder and my weapon is located on my right hip. My wallet is in my back-right pocket.”

The officer explains for his safety and mine, he needs to disarm me for the stop. I understand, and I unlock the vehicle. I explain that I’m running a 7TS ALS holster but from the angle, the second officer can’t unholster it. Lead officer asks me to step out, and I do so slowly. Officer relieves me of my Glock and compliments the X300U I’m running on it. He also sees my military ID and I tell him I’m with the National Guard.

Lead officer points out my registration card is out of date but he knows my registration is up to date. He goes back to run my license. I know he’s got me on at least two infractions. I’m thinking of how to pay them.

Officers return with my Glock in an evidence back, locked and cleared.

“Because you were cool with us and didn’t give us grief, I’m just going to leave it at a verbal warning. Get that headlight fixed as soon as possible.”

I smile. “Thank you, sir.”

I’m a black man wearing a hoodie and strapped. According to certain social movements, I shouldn’t be alive right now because the police are allegedly out to kill minorities.

Maybe…just maybe…that notion is bunk.

Maybe if you treat police officers with respect, they will do the same to you.
Police officers are people, too. By far and large, most are good people and they’re not out to get you.

I’d like to thank those two officers and TPD in general for another professional contact.

We talk so much about the bad apples who shouldn’t be wearing a badge. I’d like to spread the word about an example of men who earned their badges and exemplify what that badge stands for.

Video of father and toddler daughter singing after bath time ‘breaks the internet’

The bond between a father and daughter is very strong and perhaps there is no better time for parents to bond than after bath time when kids are clean, relaxed (hopefully) and usually ready for hugs before bedtime.
This latest cute video to go viral combines these two delights as a dad and his daughter decide to put on a post-bath performance.
With all the right ingredients together with a lot of cuteness, the video, in the words of proud mom Trina Wesson, “broke the internet.”


Trina shared an adorable video of her husband singing alongside their two-year-old daughter, Myla. The duo performed Maroon 5’s hit song “Girls Like You.”
At just two years old Myla appears to have already mastered the art of lip syncing.
“A little post bath lip sync battle last night. Myla is one heck of a lip syncer,” writes Trina.

As her dad looks on in awe, Mya gives it her all making the funniest expressions while she sings. They lip-sync the song together and are clearly having so much fun.

For Myla her big excitement of the year came with the arrival of her baby brother Sawyer. Now she has someone she can pass on her performance skills to.
In a post on Instagram mom Trina talked about the amazing year she and her family have had with the new arrival and how the viral video they posted “broke the internet.”
