Dog Found After 9 Days Under Rubble

WASHINGTON, Ill. (AP) - A dog and his owner have been reunited after the animal was found under a pile of rubble more than a week after a tornado ripped through a central Illinois city.
    
Jacob Montgomery of Washington and his dog Dexter were separated when the Nov. 17 tornado damaged Montgomery's third floor apartment.
    
Montgomery is a member of the Illinois National Guard.
    
A guard spokesman says a neighbor sent Montgomery a Facebook message nine days later to tell him Dexter had been found under debris where the apartment used to be.
    
An animal rescuing organization had coaxed the 6-month-old puppy out of the rubble with hot dogs.
    
A veterinarian found Dexter to be malnourished, but without any major injuries.
    
Montgomery says as soon as the dog saw him "his tail started going."

    What's the first thing you would do if you had a pet translator and you could understand your dog or cat?

Recent advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning suggest the dream of communicating with your pets could become a reality.

    ST. LOUIS, M.O. - Photogenic or not, this certainly isn't what the Zaring family was expecting when they saw the results of their 'professional' photo shoot.  The St. Louis family says they paid $250 to the photographer, who claimed to be a professional. What they got in return was...unique.  "Ok. This is NOT a joke," Pam and Dave Zaring wrote on Facebook. According to the couple's post, their photographer said 'the shadows were really bad '
