Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine & a Miracle

Cool story of the friendship between a Marine and a stray dog he befriended in Iraq.

 

()

The end of the story from :

As time passed Nubs would run after Brian’s humvee as they were leaving, forcing the major’s driver to lose the dog by speeding up. The reason for this was that Brian could not violate the Marine rule: pets are not allowed in combat zones because of the possibility that the animal would have a disease which would be passed on to the soldier.

During a winter visit to the fort, Brian saw that Nubs did not come up to greet him. He was gaunt and weak from a stab wound to his side that punctured his lung. Says Brian:

Some of the locals who didn’t like us saw that we had grown to like Nubs and they were just trying to get back at us. We never found out who did it. But I told the local Iraqi fort commander that if I found out who did it, I would do the same thing to them that they did to Nubs.

It probably is just a matter of days before an Idaho family will learn whether it will have to decide between giving the government hundreds of thousands of dollars or giving up completely on its plans for a dream home in Priest Lake.

It may have to pay the government evenifit gives up its dreams.

At issue is a pending request before the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene in a decision by the that the couple's land in a residential subdivision falls under its authority to protect the nation's wetlands.

The problem for the Sackett family is that once a bureaucrat makes that decision, there is no appeal available for a landowner until and unless he or she spends what could be hundreds of thousands of dollars to request special building permission.

Sun could be headed for another Maunder Minimum... ready for some cooling?

The Sun is up to it's old tricks again. Just when scientists thought they had it figured out, it .

Some unusual solar readings, including fading sunspots and weakening magnetic activity near the poles, could be indications that our sun is preparing to be less active in the coming years.

The results of three separate studies seem to show that even as the current sunspot cycle , the sun could be heading into a more-dormant period, with activity during the next 11-year sunspot cycle greatly reduced or even eliminated.

The results of the new studies were announced today (June 14) at the annual meeting of the solar physics division of the American Astronomical Society, which is being held this week at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces.

The studies looked at a missing jet stream in the solar interior, fading sunspots on the sun's visible surface, and changes in the corona and near the poles. []

Puppy with two broken legs crawls home after surviving tornado

Terriers are tenacious. has an unshakable will to survive.

Mason, a terrier mix, was feared dead after the storm but was found two weeks later by his owners in the wreckage of their home.

"This is probably the most dramatic we've seen as far as an injury in an animal that's survived this long," said Phil Doster at  Jefferson County Animal Control shelter, who is caring for Mason following surgery. The shelter has dealt with hundreds of pets hurt by the storms.

Gone fishing

Well, didn't get completely zeroed. We did not get any Chinook in the three days we were there, but did catch a messload of small trout.

My kids and I had a great time with my dad, who flew in for the trip, so it was worth it even without the salmon. Maybe next time...


Salmon season! We're headed out to get

 

Spring Chinook

and hoping to avoid getting

Light posting for a bit, but hope to have some good pics to share upon our return.

Video of one of the 160+ twisters to hit yesterday

This video was captured in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The weather guy says this this is an F4-F5 strength tornado. This was one of hundreds that hit the southern part of the country yesterday. There is an incredible amount of damage and was possibly the deadliest tornado day in the U.S. since 1974.
