A 7-month-old dog rescued from a South Carolina animal shelter is credited with saving his new owners from a house fire. “Tank” a 68-pound boxer-mastiff mix, woke his new owners early Sunday morning at their home in Union County.
There was a fire in the laundry room. Russell and Krystal Ewing made it out of their home without injury. The couple adopted Tank from the York County Animal
Shelter just days before the dog would have been euthanized. The couple is ‘thankful’ that insurance will repair the damage done to the laundry room…but they are most thankful for Tank – the dog that saved their lives. http://myfox8.com/2012/11/21/dog-from-sc-shelter-rescues-nc-couple-from-fire/

The busiest travel season of the year runs through this Sunday.  According to
AAA, over 40 million Americans plan to travel during the Thanksgiving holiday.
Flying for the holidays?  Travel expert Randy Petersen suggests having a friend or family member to drop you off at the airport, but NOT at the departure area.  Try the ‘arrival’ area.  It’s less congested during the holidays.  Also, a simple solution for what to do with your ‘carry on’ bag?  Try a gate check for that carry-on bag before
boarding the plane.   Over 23 million people will be travelling by plane over Thanksgiving.   More travel tips at www.milepoint.com
