Dog Guards Family's Burnt Down Home and Patiently Waits a Month for His Owners to Return

A Northern California woman had the reunion of a lifetime when she returned to the ruins of her home, one month after Camp Fire blazed through the community, and found her dog awaiting her arrival.

Andrea Gaylord told ABC10 that when she finally made it back to see what was left of her Paradise home, she found Madison, an Anatolian shepherd mix, patiently sitting on the barren property.

“You could never ask for a better animal,” Gaylord told the news outlet. “You really couldn’t.”

Last month, when the fires began to pick up speed and strength, Gaylord was unable to get home to rescue Madison and his doggy brother Miguel, according to K9 Paw Print Rescue. With strict evacuation orders in place for weeks, Gaylord was not permitted to return to her community or go searching for her pets.

Despite the odds being stacked against them — the deadly wildfires destroyed 13,972 residences and killed 85 people, according to Cal Fire — Gaylord believed that her dogs had survived and enlisted the help of local animal rescue volunteer, Shayla Sullivan, ABC10 reported.

Sullivan eventually found Miguel in Citrus Heights, a city 86 miles south of Paradise, but continued to search for his brother, who Sullivan said on Facebook she spotted “a few times deep in the Canyon.”

“[I] knew [Madison] took his job seriously and wasn’t going to be an easy catch,” Sullivan added, noting that she would leave fresh food and water on Gaylord’s property in hopes that Madison would eventually return.

She even had the idea of placing a piece of clothing that smelled of Gaylord on the property as a way to attract Madison.

One month after evacuating, Gaylord finally returned to her home to find Madison patiently waiting for her and protecting what was left of their property.

“Imagine the loyalty of hanging in in the worst of circumstances and being here waiting,” Gaylord told ABC10. “It was so emotional.”

Madison and Gaylord are not the only hopeful pet reunion story to come out of the devastation from Camp Fire.

Leahna Copsey’s house in Paradise, California, was also destroyed in the devastating wildfire. When authorities arrived to survey the damage, they found the family’s dog, Ella, standing watch over the surviving residence.

“She was protecting it,” Copsey told Visalia Times-Delta. “She was protecting the only house left on the block.”

Like Gaylord, Copsey and her family were unable to get home to their dog before mandatory evacuation orders were put in place. However, the family luckily got the word out to animal control and the local police, who were able to keep tabs on Ella, and leave her food and water.

“We were overjoyed to know that she made it through the fire,” Copsey’s daughter Kayla Westman told PEOPLE. “She’s doing great for what she went through… There are a lot of other dogs that are in much worse condition, so we’re just really grateful that she came out like she did.”

‘Friends & Family Hustle’: Tiny Skips Part 1 Of A Girls’ Trip To Support T.I. At Album Release Party

T.I. released his new album on the Dec. 10 episode of ‘Friends & Family Hustle,’ and Tiny was so invested in making sure she supported him that she cut a girls’ trip short to be by his side!

Tameka “Tiny” Harris took it upon herself to plan a girls’ trip on the Dec. 10 episode of T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, but it just so happened to fall on the SAME weekend as T.I.’s album release. The rapper hosted an album launch party at The Trap Museum in Atlanta on release day, and Tiny wasn’t thrilled when her man didn’t go out of his way to invite her. “Sometimes I just want to hear him say…baby, come here, come with me,” she admitted. “Even though I know if [he goes], that means if I want to go, I can go. It’s important for him to be on his A-game in this relationship, because I don’t have time to keep playing these games.”

T.I. explained to his wife that she has an “invitation for a lifetime” to be in attendance at any event he’s in attendance at, and, in the end, she promised him that she would be there…even if it meant arriving to the girls’ weekend late. “I’m looking forward to making time for both of these events,” Tiny explained. “I love Tip and I can’t wait to be there for the release party, but I also love my girls and can’t wait for a getaway trip with them. Especially since I instigated it!”

Tip made a point to explain that his album was very autobiographical, which included one particular song about Tiny and all the mistakes he’s made in their relationship called “The Amazing Mr. F*** Up.” “‘The Amazing Mr. F*** Up’ is about my relationship,” T.I. dished. “This album, it’s an evolution.” He added that he played the track for Tiny a day or two after it was complete. “I played it, she listened to it, and she said…that’s a good song,” he revealed. “That’s pretty much it.”

Of course, when T.I released “The Amazing Mr. F*** Up” in October, fans dove deep into the lyrics, which included him apologizing for getting handsy with another woman and more. “It’s my way of supplying nosy people with more nosiness,” he joked on the show. “People could care less about the true status. They just want to sensationalize it. I’m just stirring the pot! That’s where the money comes from!”

T.I. admitted that recording “The Amazing Mr. F*** Up” was “therapeutic” for him, and provided him a way to “tell [his] truth.” The whole album release made Tiny extremely proud. “I feel like it’s good to have a partner that understands the business and the pressure of the music industry,” she gushed. “When you work and are passionate about what you do, you never really make time to celebrate the accomplishments. But he really put his all into this and did a great job.”

By the end of the episode, Tiny joined her girls for the weekend getaway, so she truly got the best of both worlds AND got to appease her man and her friends!

‘The Walking Dead’ Profits Lawsuit Ambles Forward


The “Walking Dead” profits lawsuit is still undead.
Ousted co-creator and showrunner Frank Darabont and the talent agency CAA sued AMC in 2013 over profits from the show and its spinoff, and now a judge has ruled that their case has to go to trial, Variety reports. Darabont and CAA are seeking a larger share of the shows’ profits, while AMC’s lawyers have called it a “money grab.” A trial will give a jury a chance to evaluate the case and reach a decision.Darabont initially developed and executive produced the show, but he was fired in 2011, during Season 2. Court documents in 2017 revealed what an AMC lawyer called “volatile and disturbing” interactions between Darabont and his colleagues that led to his forced exit, as TV Guide reported in 2017. However, he was still entitled to a share of the ongoing profits based on his contract.
At the crux of their dispute are the licensing fees that AMC Networks must pay AMC Studios for the show. That number determines how much Darabont’s receives in profits, and he claims the fees were set at a rate below market value, thus bringing down his compensation. He argues that he was underpaid by $280 million.
It will be up to a jury to decide, as Judge Eileen Bransten did not rule in favor of either side’s interpretation of their agreement. And so the long-lasting lawsuit continues.

Arsenal make more tackles, more fouls and get more bookings under Unai Emery

It is little over six months since the Spaniard took over the reins from Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium, but the numbers show how swift his impact has been.

Under Wenger, Arsenal were the masterpiece on tissue paper. Under Emery, they are the stone statue being sculpted.

Though the team may hold the same position as they did this time last year, they already have five more points.

And the impact could be from the increase in aggression and fight they've show.

That can be seen immediately with only a glance at the numbers, which present how much more fight the Gunners have this season.

Emery's Arsenal average almost two more fouls than Wenger's did last season, with 11.9 per game over 10.1.

The former PSG boss added Uruguayan Pit bull Lucas Torreira to his midfield which has brought more bite.

That has seen the team pick up two cards per game when Wenger's side were averaging 1.6 each game.

And while some may claim aggression doesn't equal success, Arsenal's tackles have increased, too.

Last season, they made an average of 16.4 per game, and that has been upped by 1.1 tackle in each match.

Compared to their top six rivals, Arsenal lead in the tackles charts.

They've made 280 tackles, two more than Tottenham and 30 more than Manchester United.

And 190 times those tackles have been deemed illegal, with Gunners second in the big six chart of fouls committed.

United have made 198, Spurs have done 184 while Manchester City have only made 142.

Emery has immediately injected some grit and brawn to this Arsenal side.

Their league position may not show improvement, but everything else certainly does.

A Champions League place next season is a realistic expectation with Emery around.

Sarah Hyland Comes Clean About Suicidal Thoughts Before Second Kidney Transplant

Sarah Hyland contemplated suicide after discovering she needed a second kidney transplant.

The “Modern Family” star was born with kidney dysplasia and had her first transplant in 2012, when she received a kidney from her dad. However, in 2016, her body began to reject the kidney and doctors determined she would have to undergo a second surgery.

Medics discovered Sarah’s brother Ian Hyland was a match and he jumped at the chance to giver his sister his kidney.

“I was very depressed,” the actress tells Self magazine. “When a family member gives you a second chance at life, and it fails, it almost feels like it’s your fault. It’s not. But it does.

“For a long time, I was contemplating suicide, because I didn’t want to fail my little brother like I failed my dad. I had gone through (my whole life) of always being a burden, of always having to be looked after, having to be cared for.”

Hyland credits her career as an actress for helping her get through the dark times in her life.

“My work is my therapy. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for my work,” she says. “I’m so grateful for my entire family, especially my brother, especially my dad, especially my mom.”

The 28 year old, who also suffers from endometriosis, is also grateful she has her boyfriend, Wells Adams, to lean on during her struggles. The couple began dating right before Sarah’s surgery in 2016 and she is amazed they have been able to make it through all of the ups and downs of the past year and a half.

Here is what you may already know: Sarah Hyland (@sarahhyland) was born with kidney dysplasia. She went into kidney failure, and needed a kidney transplant. In 2012, when she was 21, her dad gave her one of his. This much is public knowledge. What Hyland hasn’t been ready to share until now is that in 2016, her body began to reject the donated kidney. So began a very intense and emotional two years, which involved dialysis, multiple surgeries, and a second transplant—this time with a kidney from her brother. “I was very depressed,” Hyland says. “When a family member gives you a second chance at life, and it fails, it almost feels like it's your fault. It's not—but it does.” Head to the link in our bio to read more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photographed by @catherineservel Wardrobe styling by @marpeidro Makeup by @allanface at Starworks Hair by @marktownsend1 at Starworks Manicure by @whitneygnails at Tomlinson Prop styling by @bigtimebowen On Sarah: Top by @marineserre_official, dress by @redvalentino, leggings by @nike, necklace by @fadetoblack

“It was a really intimate start to a relationship, to have to go through those hurdles at the very, very, very beginning when you’re just even getting to know a person (sic),” she adds. “Also, falling in love with someone before you can really be intimate. I did not believe that that was a thing, but it is.”

Lisa Armstrong axed after infuriating BGT bosses by attention seeking on social media after split with Ant McPartlin

The 42-year-old regularly shares her views on social media and in October, was issued with a legal warning after making jibes about her ex-husband Ant McPartlin and his girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett.

Insiders told The Sun it was these “repeated attempts to get media attention” that led to TV bosses deciding it was best for Lisa to leave the hit ITV talent show.

A source said: “Lisa was taken off Britain’s Got Talent because bosses have seen the way she constantly courts attention on social media.

“They don’t want someone working on the show who behaves in this manner. Hair and make-up artists on the show need to be behind the scenes, but Lisa constantly tries to keep herself in the spotlight by using social media to get publicity.”

Lisa’s slew of negative tweets aimed at Ant – who is the star of the show alongside Declan Donnelly –were key in bosses’ decision to terminate Lisa’s contract.

The insider added: “Lisa knows that if she likes negative tweets about Ant or tweets herself, then it will result in media coverage for herself. It has been happening for a year now.

“Producers on high profiles shows take a very dim on this sort of behaviour.

“It makes everyone on the show feel very uncomfortable that someone who is supposed to be a trusted behind the scenes person keeps on trying to get media coverage to promote themselves.”

After the news of her sacking was revealed, Lisa – who also works as on Strictly Come Dancing – made it clear she wasn’t happy with the decision and turned to social media to make her feelings clear.

When one of her followers asked whether she had decided herself to move onto “bigger and better things” she simply replied: “Nope”.

Filming for the next series of Britain’s Got Talent begins again in six weeks and today The Sun exclusively revealed Ant would be making his return to the spotlight on the show.

The 43-year-old took an extended break from the limelight earlier this year.

Lisa's representative did not respond to our request for comment.

The Sun has contacted Britain's Got Talent for comment.

Rihanna Posts Racy Picture Lounging In Lingerie To Promote Her Savage X Fenty Line

Rihanna apparently believes that if you want someone to model your lingerie line, it’s best to do it yourself.

The singer took to Instagram on Monday to post a racy picture of herself wearing a matching lingerie set while reclining on a velvet chair. The picture was a huge hit with her 66.3 million followers, garnering more than half a million likes in a little more than 10 minutes and attracting plenty of supportive comments.

“Go girl!” one person wrote.

“You are SO fine!” another added.

While fans are waiting eagerly for more music from the singer, she has been busy on Instagram using the social media platform to promote her fashion line. As Billboard noted, Rihanna has already shared some other shots from the same photo shoot to promote a pop-up shop. The pictures showed the singer against a colorful background and in some very skimpy attire.

“Rihanna looks to be channeling the Chiquita banana lady in her latest photo shoot for her Savage x Fenty lingerie line,” the report noted.

“RiRi shared a racy neon tropical-themed photo on Instagram to announce exclusive pop-up shops for the size-inclusive fashion brand.”

While she may be attracting attention for her amazing figure, Rihanna said she hopes her fashion line can promote body inclusivity and give a way for women of all sizes to feel great about the way they look. As the New York Times noted, Rihanna has walked the walk, making sure that her fashion shows reflect those ideals. While Rihanna has tapped supermodels like Gigi and Bella Hadid for the Savage X Fenty shows, she also employed models of all sizes and shapes — including two who were visibly pregnant.

It has left a big impression on the fashion world and she models she’s worked with.

“She’s putting it on the map for people to be inclusive,” said Raisa Thomas, a plus-size model who was tapped to appear in one of the Savage X Fenty fashion shows. “Plus size, white, black. It’s good for young women to see different types of people in a fashion show.”

Rihanna said she hopes that she can ultimately inspire more women to feel good about themselves, adding, “It’s a shame that women have to feel insecure or self-conscious about how their bodies look.”

More pictures of Rihanna rocking her skimpy lingerie for the Savage X Fenty line can be found on her Instagram page and the line’s Instagram page.
