Man Shares Incredible Story About How His Very Good Dog Hank Saved His Family From A Very Close Call

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!

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
