Saved by the Bell: A 3-year-old Chihuahua named Bell is being hailed as a hero for tracking down two lost girls, 5 and 8, near Atlanta. Alerted to the missing girls, a neighbor grabbed his dog, who quickly picked up their scent and led police and firefighters to the kids.
The police chief was so impressed with the Chihuahua, the diminutive dogs will now be standard issue and will be kept on each officer’s belt next to the Taser.
Dude looks like he’s 80: Steven Tyler, Aerosmith frontman and former “American Idol” judge will be at the Tacoma Dome on Wednesday with his band. Tweeted the AARP-eligible rocker: “Aerosmith is back with a vengeance and we will kick your ass and make out with yur (sic) mothers.”
Uh, Steven? Mom says thanks, but she’s got other plans. Although, Grandma says hi, and needs a ride to Tacoma.
No cookies for you: A federal lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a 12-year-old deaf Girl Scout, whose Chicago-area troop was disbanded, the suit alleges, because the troop’s council didn’t want to pay for an interpreter.
The council officials said they were sorry but they just needed one more underhanded act for their Sidestepping Moral Issues demerit badge.
