Springfield, Missouri held its annual “Dog Swim” charity event recently, where only dogs get to swim in a big public pool. It’s always the last day before they drain the pool at the end of summer. Dozens of people brought their dogs this year. All the money raised will go to a nearby dog park……. ..There was a story in the news along these lines not long ago. A police department in Kansas posted a 20-second video after a guy got pulled over for speeding last month . . . was already having a rough day . . . and asked the cop for a hug. They didn’t get into what he’s going through, but you can tell the cop really felt for him. He hugged him and promised, “It’s gonna get better.” (Here’s the video.)……………..And finally………..
A cop in Colorado named Nicholas Pacheco recently saved a choking baby, and his chest-cam got it on video. (Here’s the footage.) The parents called 911 when their month-old son stopped breathing. Nick sprinted from his car . . . ran upstairs . . . smacked the kid on the back a few times . . . and he started crying again. Pachaco’s been a cop eight years and says it’s one of the highlights of his career so far.
