In today's cutest news, a toy fox terrier that disappeared from her family's Florida home in 2007 has been found over a thousand miles away in Pittsburgh and reunited with her owner.


The 14-year-old named Dutchess was found hungry and shivering under a shed on Monday, according to an animal rescue charity. The property owner took the dog to a Humane Animal Rescue center, where staff were able to locate a microchip and trace the animal to its owners in Boca Raton, Florida.

Katheryn Strang drove 1,130 miles to Pittsburgh for an emotional reunion with Dutchess. Strang said she could not believe it when she got the call that her dog had been found after all these years.

Her son opened the door after school one day and Dutchess got out and they never saw her again. They were living in Orlando at the time near a very busy street and she assumed the dog was either hit or picked up by someone.

She checked shelters daily in the weeks after Dutchess went missing, and continued to pay the annual fee on the microchip, as well as update her contact information whenever she moved.

“They are like your babies. You don't give up hope," she said at a news conference after reuniting with Dutchess.

“Where have you been?" She asked, after hugging and kisser her long-lost pet.

Historians have a frustrating job, presumably because there are so many people out there who seem pretty intent on repeating our history... which sort of goes against the very point in the first place.

If the walls are thin... all information is fair game. The secrets that are exposed, the lies uncovered, the heartache, the joy..... heck, things we can listen from our neighbor's lives can be better than any telenovela. So many buildings are built so paper thin (thank you slumlords of NYC) that listening is unavoidable. And Lord do the neighbors have issues.

Food, like art, is objective. What we all feel in our mouths is a private thought. Our bodies are chemically defined in so many ways. How we indulge in taste is our our journey. However... somethings don't belong together. Like, it's total revolt against humanity. And pizza is the basic food life force. Don't get crazy with pizza... pizza is beautiful already.

Weddings are an emotional day for everyone involved. With so many different emotions in the air, ranging from happiness to queasiness to, you can bet something is sure to go wrong. By "wrong," of course, we talk about the moment when a priest or pastor asks if anyone has any objections to the union of the two people and someone feels inclined to say, "I object!"
