Maggie - A Good News Story

Washington, Illinois was hit by a devastating tornado on 18 November.  A man named Jon Byler Dann was able to get his family to the safe room, but their sheltie, Maggie, refused to come out of her kennel.  The tornado leveled their house but the family was safe, but Maggie was no where to be found.

About thirty hours later while sifting through the rubble with friends a faint bark was heard.  Maggie was found.   The 11-year old sheltie suffered a dislocated hip but is safe.  Funds were raised to help her and other animals.  Below are links to two articles:.

Here a couple links to the story:

I love posting a good news story.

wasn't it the best ever story - Mom (being the sook he is) when she watched and read it blubbered like a big baby but with happiness.

I had seen this story on Facebook, and it was so heartwarming to see them reunited. I can't imagine such devastation and then to lose one's beloved animal pal too. So glad this had a happy ending.
