In the aftermath of the California fire that ravaged the town of Paradise, one dog stayed behind to protect its home and miraculously survived.

Madison, the Anatolian shepherd mix, waited several weeks until his owner, Andrea Gaylord, was allowed to return.

On November 8, Gaylord was forced to evacuate when the Camp Fire began its destructive path in the small town with a population of 27,000, located 85 miles north of Sacramento.

She was not at home when the evacuation order was given and was forced to leave her furry companion behind.

Distraught over the unknown status of Madison, she contacted an animal rescuer, Shayla Sullivan, to keep an eye on the beloved dog.

Sullivan first found Madison's brother Miguel, who was safe at a shelter and then later found Madison keeping a close watch on what little remained of the home. Sullivan nourished the abandoned dog with food and water until Gaylord was allowed back on the property this week.

"If (the evacuees) can't be there I'm going to be and I'm not going to give up on their animal until they can get back in," Sullivan said, according to Telegraph.


Gaylord recalled the moment she arrived and found Madison waiting patiently for her return.

"You are the best dog," she said through tears. "The best."

Animal lovers were moved by the story with a happy ending. Cue tears of joy.






Through it all, Gaylord never lost hope.

"Their instinctual job is to watch the flocks," Gaylord told ABC10.

"We're a part of them. It's a comforting feeling."

Couple in love

No one wants to be alone.

But that doesn't mean we should settle when it comes to choosing a romantic partner.

When people rush into things without letting love flourish, it could lead to problems down the line that can inevitably lead to difficult breakups.

Among the many reasons people watch, and rewatch, sitcoms is to imagine your life was more like the one you were watching.

Being able to afford a two-bedroom apartment in Greenwich Village on a line cook's salary, somehow always having the comfortable sofa available at your favorite coffee shop whenever you pop in, or having your best friends always available at your beck and call whenever you need them.

For the romantics, however, it's wishing you could have a romance like you've seen on television.

True not all sitcom romances are exactly the sort that makes you go all aflutter (Were Ross and Rachel actually on a break? And don't even get me started about Ted and Robin.)

Other sitcom couples are so captivating, though, that we would have given anything to be at their wedding... or at the very least go to their home for dinner every Friday.

And this includes plutonic couples, as there is nothing more heartwarming than a lasting friendship.

As an editor, I am not just in charge of proofreading and correcting style and format. I am also in charge of making sure all the contact information provided, such as phone numbers and emails, work.

After working for 10 hours straight a few months ago, I forgot to check the phone numbers and let a brochure go to publication with a phone number that did not work.

Luckily, a similar mistake had actually happened before with another editor for another client a year prior, so contact info on print materials like this brochure were checked by every department rather than just editorial, and the mistake was caught.

Since I didn't know this, when I heard the phone number was wrong, my heart dropped to my stomach and I thought I was sure fired. Luckily, I was just told to make sure this never happens again. I was relived that there was no fallout, but when I first heard what happened, my only thought was. 'I totally f**ked up!'

Redditors are no strangers to this feeling, as they've made egregious mistakes themselves. They are only too eager to share their experiences.

With the world's finances the way they are, it's a miracle if people can save their spare change.

Inflation has a stronghold on too many people.

Sometimes it feels like just breathing can cost you money.

It's hard to make and absurdly easy to lose.

So be vigilant with your wallet.

And try to spend on certain things in moderation.

Going out for meals three times a day adds up.

Even with Wendy's value menu.
