An amazing list of stories about courageous canines that took on situations by the scruff of the neck and emerged victorious.

    30+ Times Dogs Surprised Humans With Their Incredibly Heroic Acts
    Many of us, especially those of us who grew up with TV classics like Lassie, have a soft spot for heroic dogs. Dogs are everyday heroes in so many ways, from guide dogs to rescue dogs and those that keep us safe by sniffing out explosives and drugs, there are countless tales of man's best friend standing up and doing amazing things.

That is one big 100 lb puppy.

    Shelter Takes In The Biggest Puppy They've Ever Seen
    Weighing in at just under 100 pounds, 10-month-old Fluffy is a Caucasian shepherd, a massive working breed native to Russia and Armenia once used to protect livestock from wolves and bears. Their size and strength gives them the nickname "Russian Bear Dogs" - and Fluffy is quite the teddy bear herself.

BroadwayWorld - Houston raves, "the entire cast of The Color Purple Musical did not merely put on a show for Houston, but rather they did what every great work of theatre should do: they displayed their humanity, their soul, and their spirit for us all to share in." https://www.broadwayworld.com/houston/article/BWW-Review-THE-COLOR-PURPLE-Places-Soul-and-Spirit-On-Display-at-The-Hobby-Center-20180110

    BWW Review: THE COLOR PURPLE Places Soul and Spirit On Display at The Hobby Center
    The Broadway Across America engagement of the 2016 Tony Award Winning Revival of THE COLOR PURPLE presented a performance brimming with soul and spirit to The Hobby Center. Based on Alice Walker's 1982 novel, the show follows the difficult journey of Celie (Adrianna Hicks), a young black mother in early-20th century Georgia.
