Dog Saves Child

Zoey is a Chihuahua, but when a rattlesnake lunged at her owners' 1-year-old grandson, she was a real bulldog. Booker West was splashing his hands in a birdbath in his grandparents' northern Colorado back yard when the snake slithered up to the toddler, rattled and struck. Five-pound Zoey jumped in the way and took the bites.

How long has it been since we heard a good news story concerning a dog? It seems that all the news is bad news, because that is what sells. Such bad news reporting turns pit bulls into devil dogs, gives the impression that we need to over regulate everyone's lives concerning every thing, and whittles away at our freedoms.
