Dog was missing for more than a week. Then his whimpering was heard from a drainpipe
A dog named Jack got stuck in an underground pipe in southwest Missouri and was there for days – as many as eight – before he was rescued by firefighters.
Jack’s owners told the local fire department that the dog had disappeared more than a week ago – until when one of them heard whimpering while checking the mail.
The firefighters said they found Jack in the middle of the 15-foot pipe under the owners’ gravel driveway.
It’s unclear how he ended up there. We’re happy he’s ok, but this rescue was pretty close to a miracle considering this beautiful Lab was 12 years old. Full Story…

Kevin Smith: Doctor Says Weed Saved My Life
The director spoke about his recent health incident on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
After suffering a major heart attack in February, Kevin Smith wondered if it was caused by smoking too much pot, but his doctor assured him the case was quite the opposite: all that weed surely saved his life.
Smith was surprised to find out from his doctor that it’s thanks to his love of marijuana that he’s still alive to make more movies.
