Another story about them evil pitties !!!!
Dog's lick saved my life - The kiss of life has new meaning for a
Southland woman who credits her dog as her savior. Shirley Mulvihill
was alone and asleep in her house when her eight-month-old Staffordshire
dog Fiji licked her face to alert her to danger. Her eyes opened to a
smoke filled bedroom and her house in the firm grip of a fiery inferno,
she said. She made a frantic phone call to the fire service for help but
halfway through the phone cut out, she said. Not knowing if the message
had got through, she dashed out the front door and ran down the road to
one neighbor, but no-one was home. So it was on to the next to make
sure the alarm was raised. But from the window she saw the lights of
fire engines coming, the call had been answered, Mrs Mulvihill said.
"I'm certainly no runner but it didn't take very long for them to get
here." But it was too late, the house was engulfed and her neighbor
told her the kitchen was gone. "My house is gone, but we are both alive,
thanks to Fiji." The experience was frightening and unreal, she said.
Fiji was a special friend and now even more so, Mrs Mulvihill said.
"She'll get a few treats out of this."

This is a rather bizarre ad for a car .... but proof everybody wants a
cat representing them!!!

I love YOU,

PS If you don't want your Daily Good News, just let me know! A couple
of you have said you only want Hairballs with out the Good News!!
That's ok! Just tell me. I'm here to make you happy, just tell me how!
If Good New don't make you happy - I could always start Bad News, but,
as you hoomans say, why reinvent the wheel - that's what you've got tv
and newspapers for !!!!!
