A faithful dog has refused to leave the side of his dead master’s grave for six years, it was reported today. German shepherd, Capitan, ran away from home after the death of Argentinian, Miguel Guzman, in 2006. A week later, Mr Guzman’s family went to pay their respects and found the heartbroken pet sitting by his owner’s grave, wailing.
Since then the grieving dog has rarely left the spot at the cemetery in the town of Villa Carlos Paz, central Argentina. Mr. Guzman bought Capitan as a present for his 13-year-old son, Damian, in 2005. Damian’s father died suddenly in March the next year, but by the time his family had returned home from the funeral, Capitan was gone.
‘We searched for him but he had vanished. We thought he must have got run over and died.
‘The following Sunday we went to the cemetery and Damian recognised his pet. Capitan came up to us, barking and wailing, as if he were crying.’
‘We had never taken him to the cemetery so it is a mystery how he managed to find the place.
‘We went back the next Sunday, and he was there again. This time, he followed us home and spent a bit of time with us, but then went back to the cemetery before it started getting dark.
‘I don’t think he wanted to leave Miguel on his own at night.’
The cemetery’s director Hector Baccega remembers the day he first saw the dog.
‘He turned up here one day, all on his own, and started wandering all around the cemetery until he eventually found the tomb of his master.
‘During the day he sometimes has a walk around the cemetery, but always rushes back to the grave. And every day, at six o’clock sharp, he lies down on top of the grave stays there all night.’
Sam, the golden retriever, jumped into the Merrimack River for a swim, when he was suddenly swept away. With the help of his owners voice, as well as the firefighters, Sam was able to be rescued quickly and reunited with his best friend.
Karruim Demaio was an employee at a McDonald’s in Philadelphia, when he came across a bag of buns that a mouse had crawled in. He decided that he would record the footage with his camera and wait to see what would be done with the buns before exposing this story.
‘That wasn’t the first time. That was about the sixth or seventh time. That’s what made me like, I got to get video of this.
‘I was going back there to get something else and I heard some rustling, so I turned around, and I look, I seen a mouse inside the bread. Not on top of the package, but inside of the package.’
Unfortunately for the owner of this branch, Demaio wasn’t the only employee to come forward and speak out against the health code violations that had taken place.
Ken Youngblood, the owner/operator of the McDonalds franchise said: ‘After viewing the video, we are going to continue to investigate this claim to make certain we have all the facts. I want my customers to know that I am taking this matter seriously and will immediately address any issues that may exist. Therefore, if necessary, we will work with the appropriate authorities to get the facts.
Mr. Youngblood must be forgetting the various other health code violations that they have had at this particular McDonald’s.
According the Philadelphia Health Department, live flies were found in the food preparation area; perishable food was not kept cool enough; and refrigeration units were not working correctly. However there was no evidence of any rodents being found.
The report stated: ‘The establishment is not in satisfactory compliance… And current management practices have allowed unacceptable public health or food safety conditions.’

Jack Dukes was apparently at his home in Fort Smith, Arkansas, when two gentlemen came to his door on Monday morning and had asked to be let inside. Both men knew Dukes by name and he believed one was a neighbor who could have been in some trouble, and so he allowed them to enter his home. Big mistake.
After entering the home, one of the suspects hit Dukes over the head and knocked him down. His beloved macaw, Charlie, decided to make quite a scene when one of the suspects demanding Hydrocodone (Vicodin) picked him up. Charlie even went so far as to bite a chunk of skin from the suspects arms.
Charlie is being hailed as a hero, as he should be, but the parrot isn’t the first to be rewarded for his heroism.
In 2009, Willie the parrot saved a little girl from choking. The bird began flapping its wings and yelling “Mama, baby” to its owner until she returned to the room to find the girl she was babysitting turning blue, according to the Associated Press.
In 2007, a parrot named Peanut imitated the sound of the fire alarm after it went off at 3 a.m. one morning, according to WTHR. The bird’s squawking woke the mother from her sleep. She found the house filled with smoke, grabbed her children and Peanut, and darted out of the house.

ALHAMBRA, Calif. — The owner of a Southern California yogurt shop has been charged with attacking an employee, removing her clothes, binding her with tape and locking her in a box.
Los Angeles County prosecutors say Robert Yachen Lee allegedly attacked the woman Wednesday morning after luring her into an upstairs storage room at the Monterey Park shop. The woman blacked out. When she woke up she was naked, except for an adult diaper, bound with tape with a collar around her neck and lying face down in a box that had been placed in a soundproofed storage room.
The woman managed to free herself and call police.
Lee was charged Friday with kidnapping to commit rape and attempted murder. He’s being held on $10 million bail.

I really wish there was more to this story because I am left insanely confused. First of all, why the hell did he put a diaper on her? Was he planning on leaving her in there for awhile and didn’t want her to pee in the box? Because that just seems odd. I mean, kidnapping an employee, stripping them and keeping them as a pet in a box is pretty fucking odd too, but what purpose does the diaper serve?
Also, how was she bound? Because she was obviously able to get out pretty easily. Where were you while she was making this escape Mr. Lee? You kidnap someone and then just leave? I need to know more. I am unsatisfied, disturbed, and very confused.
Regardless, you’re a sick piece of shit and I hope to God that while you’re in jail on that $10 million (holy *%$*@&^$ shit!) bond, that you decide to come clean and answer some of the questions I have asked. And, I hope that you’re ass gets raped so hard that you’re forced to wear an adult diaper. Why? You tell me.
