A group of stranded mountain climbers were recently rescued from Mt. Hood. They credited their dog Velvet with helping them survive a bitterly cold night at 7,400 feet. The 4-year-old mixed Labrador transformed herself into a canine comforter, draping her body across the climbers and providing them needed warmth. Velvet is the poster dog for those traits everyone associates with Labradors: loyalty, courage and intelligence. These characteristics have made Labrador retrievers the most popular dog in America for the past 15 years.

HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. -- One of the "opening lines" Evan Frank used to get people to donate to the charity for which he has been fundraising since April 2008 is pretty simple, but not easily ignored. "If I could just have a moment of your time, I can tell you how you can save lives," the 8-year-old Harpers Ferry boy recited in an interview. Along with some other creative fundraising techniques, Evan has raised more than $9,000 for a Christian organization's mission to drill thousands of wells for people in impoverished areas of the world that lack clean drinking water.

Two girls from Brownie Troop 40169 represented their troop as they made a  donation to Toys for Tots at a Dec. 18 event sponsored by the Leitersburg Cinemas in Hagerstown. The girls used the proceeds from selling cookies last year to purchase the toys. They decided last January that they would use some of the money earned for a fun activity and a donation of toys. They had their fun activity at Pump It Up but were waiting for the right opportunity for the toy donation. After reading about boxes of stolen Toys for Tots boxes in the Chambersburg, Pa., area, the decision was made to help the organization run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, which helps needy children in the area.
