This year on National Puppy Day, dog owners everywhere shared pictures and stories in celebration of our furry friends and every thing they do for us.

Twitter user @USCocksman was especially grateful for his golden retriever Hank though, without whom he might not be around today.


Loyalty, companionship, and unconditional love — what else could we ask for from our four-legged friends? So it's only right that every March 23rd, on National Puppy Day, we take the time to honor good boys and girls everywhere for being apart of our lives.

Some dogs take the loyalty to an entirely new level however, like this dog who saved his human family from a shooting. Dogs like that seem to be the most deserving of appreciation

Another dog that deserves just as much appreciation is Twitter user @USCocksman's Golden Retriever Hank.



As a puppy, Hank was a bit of a trouble maker with a taste for Vans sneakers.



But a bit of puppy mischief was nothing compared to the night Hank saved his family from a very close call.



When Hank began barking nonstop late one night, his owner eventually realized that something wasn't right. After getting up to see what was wrong, @USCocksman discovered what Hank had been barking about.

The entire yard had caught fire!



The family immediately called 911 and got Hank and themselves outside.




Thanks to Hank and the fire fighters, the house survived mostly undamaged and Hank's family was saved from a dangerous situation that could have had a much more tragic ending.



Twitter was blown away by Hank's story and collectively sent all of their extra pats and belly rubs for the very good boy.






And for his heroic efforts, Twitter users offered to send Hank all the shoes he could ever eat.






Incredibly though, Hank's wasn't the only tale of unbelievable doggy heroism as several shared their stories of how their dogs had managed to save their lives too.






We truly don't deserve dogs, but thankfully, they stick by us anyway. To honor your own very good boy, might we suggest this adorable t-shirt? Or just join me in squealing over the cuteness of these puppies!

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
