Here are a few more good news stories making the rounds.
1. A group of spelunkers were exploring a cave in Indiana this month and rescued a lost dog trapped 30 feet down. They hooked him up to a harness and pulled him out.
They took him to a shelter, and the people there think he was stuck in the cave for two weeks. They eventually tracked down the owners, and he’s back home now. He might have survived on rainwater that collected in an empty turtle shell.
2. Here’s a guy who turned tragedy into triumph: 52-year-old Bill Bowden lives near L.A. And sadly, his wife of 26 years passed away in 2019. So at that point, he didn’t know how to keep going, until a coworker encouraged him to start exercising.
He was the heaviest he’d ever been at that point, about 280 pounds, but he started biking every day. And since then, he’s lost almost 120 pounds. He’s down to 162 now, and just did his first triathlon on Saturday. (Here’s a before-and-after shot.)
3. A guy in Maryland started a business last year called Toa Waters that sells bubble baths for men. And to celebrate the first anniversary, his mom made him a scrapbook of photos. But then he picked it up, drove off, and left it on top of his CAR.
But the good news is, he got it back: A random woman found a bunch of pages scattered across the road, realized they were important, and gathered them up. Then she found his website, and got them back to him. Her mom also went looking later on and found another page. So in the end, only one page was lost.
