A suburban New York canine named Figo helped redefine the term "service dog" this week, when he reportedly jumped in front of a bus to save his owner from more serious injuries. His blind owner, 62-year-old Audrey Stone, had gone for a walk Monday morning with Figo when a bus came barreling down the street. Figo’s protective instincts kicked in and jumped in front of Stone to take the blow, witnesses said.
Stone suffered a fractured elbow and ankle, three broken ribs, and a cut to her head in the accident, while Figo suffered a deep cut to his right leg. Paul Schwartz, who witnessed the accident, said Figo tried desperately to be near his owner while paramedics attended to her.
"He sat with me the whole time. He was limping as we put him on a big blanket on the sidewalk and it started to rain. He let us wrap up his leg without any problem," "He wasn’t barking or crying or yelping. But he kept pulling toward her. After she was put on a gurney and taken away, he stopped doing that. He seemed a little lost after she left."
Stone is being treated in the hospital while Figo was taken to a local vet for surgery. Middlebranch Veterinary Hospital says the hero retriever is now "resting comfortably and doing extremely well."
I remember once when my dad gave me money to pay the electricity bill but instead I bought a raffle ticket for a brand new car. When I got home, I explained to my dad what I did and he beat the crap out of me. But the next day,when my dad woke up and opened the door, outside my house was a brand new car. We all cried especially me, because the car was from the electricity company, they were there to cut off the electricity, my dad beat the crap out of me again

Why do we always reminisce about “The good ol’ days” as if the present is never up to par?
Nostalgia , everything seems better when you look back at it (Well, most things)
We tend to ignore or minimize our negative memories and look at the past through rose-tinted glasses. Sometimes it can be healthy, since it keeps us from getting too bitter or pessimistic.
It’s not too uncommon in our daily lives. You think about a toy, show, or place you loved when you were a kid, but when you find it, it’s underwhelming. Or you think to yourself, ‘Oh man, I haven’t thought about [person] in forever. Why did we ever break up?/ Why did we ever stop hanging out?’
The other side of it is that our grandparents grandparents complained about how the world was going to pot, ’90s kids’ complain about how the world is going to pot, and nearly everyone everyone in between also thinks that things are obviously worse than in the carefree days of their youth.
