Hero dog recovering after saving girl, grandmother

TAMPA — A heroic dog that likely saved a little girl's life is now getting a little help himself.
Haus, a 2-year-old German Shepherd, jumped in between Molly DeLuca, 7, and a diamondback rattlesnake earlier this week, suffering multiple bites.
Now, more than a thousand people from all over the world have come to his rescue through a GoFundMe page that has raised more than $47,000 to pay for his vet bills.
Donya DeLuca said her daughter and her grandmother were in their backyard when their German Shepherd sprung into action. He didn't back down even though the snake kept biting him. Doctors discovered three bites.
"There's no doubt he was protecting our family," DeLuca said.
Haus has been hospitalized since Wednesday. Veterinarians at BluePearl Veterinary hospital in Tampa said there's so much venom in his system that he needs a steady drip of antivenin. Without it, the dog would have died within hours.
So far, Haus has received seven vials of antivenin. Each vial costs up to $650. On top of that he's in the ICU, meaning expensive 24-hour care with three veterinarians looking after him. He also received a blood transfusion Friday.
The GoFundMe page was started to help the family with medical costs to keep Haus alive. Now, more than 1,600 people have donated three times the original goal of $15,000 as of Friday night.
"I feel like the people of Tampa are so good to me," DeLuca said.


Doctors said Haus is slowly getting better. He was able to walk Friday. His wounds are improving and he's drinking lots of water. They believe he will survive but will have a long road of recovery.
Molly is just thankful her best friend is getting better. "They are sweet, and kind, and nice because they're caring about Haus," she said.

This is probably the most adorable thing ever....
Lincoln Ball, 4, was given a puppy after his doctor discovered he was severely allergic to outdoor allergens, his father Daniel Ball told ABC News. He told his son that it was "his responsibility to learn how to train the dog," so he suggested looking up YouTube tutorials.

"He got the video all lined up," Ball recalled, "and then he called the dog over and started playing it directly to the dog."

Lincoln's mother Tasha thought it was genius, so she snapped a picture. What the couple didn't expect was that when Lincoln's uncle posted it to Facebook that it would go viral, with more than 17,000 comments and more than 177,000 shares.

As you have heard...a Garth Brooks fan tragically passed away after suffering cardiac arrest at the Fargodome. BOB 95 has been in touch with the family and we are encouraging our listeners to help this family by donating on their Go Fund Me page. We also encourage thoughts and prayers for the family. The funeral for Harvey Aho is today (5/14/16). He was 68. "The Dance" by Garth Brooks will be played at his funeral.
The following statement is from the family:

Due to numerous requests, we have set up this Go Fund Me account. We struggled with these requests as our purpose was to let the world know about Dad, however once the funeral is done and we begin to heal, we will have to face the medical expenses.

We are hoping to raise enough money to cover the medical expenses incurred. We don't have the exact amount yet, but we are anticipating a hefty sum. Once we get the exact number I will update the goal.

Any money raised above our expenses will be donated to families in similar need at the Sanford Medical Center.


Connie and Harvey Aho, my mother and father in law, are a couple of the hugest Garth Brooks fans I have ever met, especially Harvey. As a 43rd anniversary gift to the both of them, their children bought them tickets to see him in Fargo, ND. It was always their dream to see him perform live as his shows are the best around. This was Harvey's wish at some point in his life.

Feeling like two high school sweethearts once again they made the 8 hour drive to Fargo, ND from Dryden, ON, Canada. They arrived at the Fargodome just fine, but after the long walk up to their seats, Harvey sat down and fell unconscious; suffering cardiac arrest. The medical team and the fans at the show were extremely helpful and quick to respond with CPR and the use of an AED. Paramedics arrived swiftly and took Harvey to Sanford Medical Center and Mom was brought to the hospital by the local police; great men and women.

Now, being from Canada, these tickets were gifts to fulfill a dream of Harvey and Connie's, so we were not there. We got the news and it brought the family to its knees... we quickly made the drive to Fargo to be with them.

Terrified of the unknown my mother then told us that since these tickets were gifts, they had no time to acquire medical insurance while in the USA. Scary thought when they were retired living on a very modest pension.

Harvey James Aho, 68, from Dryden, ON passed away peacefully with his family by his side in Fargo, ND. May, 7, 2016.
His one dream was to watch Garth Brooks perform before he passed. How ironic that he never did get to see his dream come true.

Again we would like to thank the medical team of the Fargodome, the fellow fans who helped and acted so quickly, the EMTs who arrived so quickly, Police officers who brought mom to the hospital that night and came back to check in the next day, the amazing critical care team at Sanford Medical Center, and thank you to everyone for the condolences, well-wishes and prayers.

Any donations we recieve will be most humbly accepted, we just want to be done with the burden of money so we can begin to heal.

Former Bride-To-Be Turns Canceled Wedding Into Luncheon For Kids In Need
·
·
When a former bride-to-be wasn't able to have the wedding of her dreams, she turned her would-be big day into a special event for others.

Yiru Sun canceled her wedding, which was set to take place in New York City, following a disagreement over the prenuptial agreement, ABC7 reported. And though she was unable to get a refund on the reception venue's deposit, she decided to turn lemons into lemonade and host a lunch for about 60 kids in need and their families so that they could enjoy a special day of their own.
"I cannot be the princess of my wedding day, but I can give the kids a fairy tale," she said, according to the New York Post.
According to CBS2, Sun, who's a single mother, received help from the Salvation Army and youth organization Inwood House to put on the pre-Mother's Day luncheon at the Harold Pratt House, where her reception was to be held. While there, kids and their families chowed down on food, got their faces painted and were given balloons, New York Post reported.
Sun canceled her wedding two months ago, however she was unable to get her$8,000 deposit back.
But she had a plan. "Three weeks later, I woke up with this idea," she told the New York Post. Later adding, "At that moment, I started to think it was God's plan."
Judging from the response from her attendees, the event seemed like a success.
"I thought it was an incredibly selfless act. Just to turn around and do something that helps other is an amazing show of character," William Natal, who attended the event, told CBS2 .
And though it was tough to cancel the wedding, Sun told the outlet that it worked out for the best.

Even if you support The Donald...this is pretty funny.

So how unpopular is DONALD TRUMP? He's so unpopular that people prefer both LICE and NICKELBACK. And that's according to an actual, national poll by Public Policy Polling.

He ran neck-and-neck with Nickelback, but lice CRUSHED him, 54% to 28%.

Other things more popular than Trump were traffic jams, used car salesmen, hipsters, the DMV, Jury Duty, and root canals.

He DID beat cockroaches and hemorrhoids . . . but among just women, he lost to both of THOSE, too.

SPOILER ALERT! If you like to be surprised at concerts and don't want to know what songs you will hear or how the show will go - THEN STOP READING. Below is a detailed description of how the show will look, the setlist and encores. Take note about the REQUEST SIGNS as those signs BOB listeners made for a chance to win will come in very handy.



Depending on the specific venue, the show begins with a performance from opening act Karyn Rochelle. The stage consists of a large cube video monitor, featuring four sides showing Brooks' logo prior to the concert beginning. At the start, the cube is raised and Brooks appears as the first song is played. He begins his set, performing nearly all popular songs from his early albums. Yearwood then accompanies Brooks for a duet, followed by performing a select few of her songs. Brooks returns to perform additional songs, then two separate sets of encores.

As shown in the first legs of the tour, the first four songs are always the same. The concert begins with footage of Brooks' silhouette while singing the opening lines to "Man Against Machine". He then appears via elevator through the floor of the stage, pauses, and continues performing the song. The bridge and final chorus are omitted and it transitions to "Rodeo", followed by "Two of a Kind, Workin' on a Full House", and "The Beaches of Cheyenne". Next, depending on the venue, other songs such as "The River", "Two Pina Coladas", "Papa Loved Mama", and "Ain't Goin' Down ('Til the Sun Comes Up)". "Unanswered Prayers" follows, with the audience singing the entire song with little accompaniment from Brooks. Additional songs, including "That Summer", "The Thunder Rolls", and "We Shall Be Free" may follow. Excluding the opening, Brooks only performs one song from Man Against Machine, his new album (either "People Loving People" or "All American Kid"; occasionally "Mom"). When questioned on his lack of new songs in the setlist, he remarked, "I'm just like you... I see the guys I like and I want to hear the old stuff."

Brooks then begins singing "In Another's Eyes", as Trisha Yearwood enters the stage and performs the duet. Yearwood goes on to performs a select few of her songs, including "XXX's and OOO's (An American Girl)", "How Do I Live", "She's in Love with the Boy", and "Georgia Rain". Brooks then returns to sing "PrizeFighter" with Yearwood and transition back into his set. Additional songs performed by Brooks may include "Callin' Baton Rouge" and "Shameless". "Friends in Low Places" is then performed, followed by "The Dance" as the main set ends and the band departs from the stage.

At each concert, Brooks and crew return to the stage and perform "The Fever". Brooks dances on a conveyor belt as the drummer's sphere rises above the stage. Following the performance, the band leaves the stage once again. Brooks then returns, often unaccompanied, for what he dubs the "housekeeping segment", in which he scans the crowd for fans with signs requesting songs, performing them acoustically. In some instances, he may also perform acoustic covers of songs like "Amarillo By Morning", "Night Moves", and "Piano Man". Regardless, the encore set commonly concludes with the band returning to perform "Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)".

Baby left at Chicago dumpster reunites with rescuer 20 years later

Morgan Hill has spent the past two years searching for her "guardian angel" and on April 20, they
finally reunited.
A construction worker named Gerald Rocky Hyatt found Hill, now 20, as a newborn after she was
left at a dumpster in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, by her birth mother.

"He was dropping off the last load of trash from the construction area he was working on," Hill told NBC affiliate WMAQ.
"Before he dropped it in, he heard a whimper. He found a white kitchen bag that was double knotted."
While she has always known she was adopted, she was surprised to learn the full story of the October
1995 incident a couple years ago. With NBC affiliate KSHB's help, she tracked down the man who rescued her.
"I broke into tears and the first thing I said was, 'Thank you,'" Hill said. "He said to me, 'Baby girl, you are so loved.'"
After Hyatt found her, Hill was taken to a nearby hospital, where she was named Mary Grace. She was then adopted by
Sandi Hill, and given her current name.

Hyatt came to the reunion with two special items in hand — a pin he received for his heroic actions
and a photo of him holding baby Mary Grace with her adoptive parents and the nurse who first named her.

The photo is going in a binder filled with clippings that her adoptive parents have held onto all these years and
Hyatt also gave Hill the pin, which she hasn't taken off since. "I could not thank him enough," Hill said.
"He gave me a chance to live a second life. Because if he didn't find me, I would not be here to help others
and show soon-to-be mothers that there are so many options out there and you don't have to throw your baby away."

GOING TO GARTH – HERE'S 20 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW!


  1. Garth returns to Fargo for the first time in over 17 years this weekend!
  1. The first attempt to sell tickets for the Fargodome shows resulted in a computer meltdown and Garth was forced to suspend ticket sales for nearly a week.
  1. The 2nd on-sale attempt resulted in over 70,000 tickets being sold in just a few hours.
  1. Nearly 80,000 people are expected to attend the 4 shows this Thursday thru Sunday.
  1. Garth played the Red River Valley Fair in 1991. His opening act that night was Trisha Yearwood.
  1. Check your tickets carefully. Ticketholders showing up for the wrong night is a common mistake at multiple Garth shows.
  1. The tour kicked off in September 2014 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.
  1. The set list for the shows vary, but Brooks has been playing his own hits, such as "Callin' Baton Rouge" and "The Dance" as well as covers. He's performed his take on songs from Billy Joel and Aerosmith at past dates.
  1. Doors open 90 minutes before each show.

  1. Showtimes: Thursday – 7:30, Friday 7:00, Saturday 7:00, Sunday 7:30
  1. Friday, Saturday and Sunday shows are SOLD OUT. Limited tickets remain available for the Thursday show.
  1. Garth is doing 4 shows in Fargo which is below average for the number of shows Garth does in each tour stop. 3 shows is the least amount of shows on a stop…while 11 shows in Chicago and Minneapolis were the most.
  1. Get there early. There will be a VERY short opening act each night, immediately followed by Garth taking the stage. Trisha Yearwood performs in the middle of Garth's set.
  1. Regular concert security measures will in place at the Fargodome. Expect all bags to be searched when entering the concert.
  1. Fargo's 4 shows are more shows than Milwaukee, Little Rock, San Jose and Birmingham.
  1. BOB 95 is giving away tickets to the sold out all week long.
  1. Garth is considered one of the best selling artists ever, moving an estimated 150 million units since his debut record dropped in 1989.
  1. Parking is $5 per vehicle. With so many tickets sold, expect lots to fill to capacity quickly. Nearby lots off alternate parking and taking a shuttle bus or carpooling is suggested.
  1. BOB 95 has pre-parties at O'Kellys on Thursday and Borrowed Bucks on Friday and Saturday – both locations are offering shuttle busses for every night of the concerts.
  1. BOB 95 is giving away a chance to meet Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood in person. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS.
