People will tell you that animals don’t have emotions or thoughts. But science is beginning to prove otherwise. Through brain scans and lab testing, researchers are able to identify ways animals react to certain stimuli, proving that dogs and other animals have a lot more going on up in their brains than people of previous generations thought. And if you have any lingering doubt about their ability yourself, then this story will prove to you that animals have feelings.
During a recent trip to the animal shelter, Bronwyne Mirkovich had a good feeling that today was going to be the day. He wanted to take a best friend home with him, but he refused to settle for just any dog. Bronwyne wanted the “perfect” companion to spend his days with. While he did not know what that meant, he decided to trust his gut and figured he’d know it when he saw it.
Although Bronwyne had a good feeling that this day would change his life, he didn’t know it would be so easy. The best friend he had been waiting for was right there looking at him. The dog, Edie, was behind the metal grate staring out at Bronwyne with a set of eyes that begged him to take him home. Although Edie was a bit standoffish at first, as soon as Edie realized that Bronwyne was there as his friend and not something much more sinister, he warmed up and walked over to him.
Edie had a right to be terrified of humans. He was slated to be killed in one hour. If Bronwyne had not arrived on a mission to take a best friend home with him, Edie would have died. That’s why Edie’s transformation from terrified and depressed to elated was so monumental.
Every year, animal shelters put down about 1.5 million animals. Bronwyne knew that thousands of animals get killed every day because people choose to shop at pet stores and breeders instead of going to their local shelters to adopt. He knew that if he took a dog home from the shelter, he’d be saving a life. But he did not know that Edie’s life was as close to over as it was.
While the thought of adopting a dog is grand, the Huffington Post recommends a simple test to make sure the canine will mesh with your personality and your needs.
“After letting the dog or puppy sniff around a new enclosure for a few minutes, try to get his attention by calling out to him. Next, extend a toy or treat and walk six feet across the floor. Does he follow you?”
If the dog passes that part of the test, you should progress with:
“Take a set of keys or a can filled with five pennies. Discreetly shake it behind your back. Then drop it on the floor five feet from your candidate and note his reaction.”
If the dog is skittish, it might be a risky best friend to adopt, especially if you have children who make a lot of noise.
The Huffington Post recommends the third test to make sure the potential adoptee is right for you and your family.
“Either hop or skip across the floor. Drop down as if you’ve tripped and shout, ‘Ouch!’ What does the puppy (or dog) do?”
While these tests might make you feel foolish, they’ll help you choose the right rescue dog to adopt.

32-year-old Texas mom arrested for forcing herself on her 12-year-old son
A Texas mother, Brittany Rouleau was arrested as she ordered her little boy of mere 12-year-old to strip naked inside their Wichita Falls home in 2018 before raping him. She is now being held at the Wichita County Jail on a $100,000 bond and has been charged with aggravated sexual assault on Saturday.
According to the reports, the 34-year-old mother attacked her son after questioning him about masturbation while she was undressing and the boy had just gotten out of the shower. The boy told the investigators that he was sitting on the bed that they both shared when his mom entered the room. Rouleau then began taking her clothes off and also ordered the little boy to do the same.
The son said that he raped him in their shared bed and then told him to clean himself up. The boy then reportedly went to sleep on the couch and also informed his mother that whatever happened between them genuinely felt wrong. However, the mom replied that it is likely for him to get into trouble as he accepted what just happened.
According to reports, Rouleau then warned the victim to not share the news with anyone else. After two years of this incident, the son confessed to another adult who cares for him and then he was brought to the police by his guardian. The boy again repeated the allegations when he was taken to Patsy’s House Child Advocacy and shortly afterwards Rouleau was then arrested.
She later denied any sexual intercourse with the victim but eventually admitted the fact that she had sex with him.
WHILE TAKING A NAP, MORGUE WORKER CREMATED ACCIDENTALY
Beaumont, Texas | A morgue worker in the Jefferson County morgue has been pronounced dead this morning after being accidentally cremated by one of his coworkers.
While he was sleeping, another employee mistook him for the corpse of a 52-year-old car accident victim and carried him to the crematory.
Before anyone could notice the mistake, he had already been exposed to temperatures ranging between 1400 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit and reduced to ashes.
Jenna Davis, one of Henri Johnson’s coworkers, says she heard him scream for about 15 seconds after the crematory was activated.
Ms. Davis claims that the young coworker who caused the accident was a new employee and had forgotten to check for the toe tag to make sure he had the right body.
Jenna Davis says she heard the victim scream in agony as the crematory was reducing him to ashes.
The police have opened an investigation to determine the exact circumstances surrounding Mr. Johnson’s death.
Investigators have not ruled out the possibility of filing criminal charges against the employee who caused his death.
The young man could possibly be accused of criminal negligence causing death.
Arkansas Woman Arrested After Raping a 14-Year-Old Boy
A woman from Arkansas has been arrested for allegedly having sexual relations with a 14-year-old boy. The suspect was busted after the boy’s parents caught her forcing herself to have sex on their son.
According to Jonesboro Police Department, the suspect, Mallory Brooke Manley, is facing multiple counts of rape and internet stalking of a child, as reported by Kait 8 News.
Suspect allegedly stalked teen online
The parents of the 14-year-old boy had caught 25-year-old Mallory Brooke Manley from Jonesboro and their son having sex.
After the discovery, the two were immediately subject to investigation. Investigators questioned the underage boy and Manley to figure out how long the abuse has been going on.
The victim told the investigators that both he and Manley had were involved in sexual acts for five to six times.
However, the statement of the boy and from the 25-year-old suspect did not match. According to Manley, the two of them had sex at least 10 times. Investigators also discovered that she had been stalking the teen online.
On October 25, Manley was arrested by the police along with JPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children Division. The ground for her arrest was a rape case. The suspect is currently in the custody of the Craighead County Jail according to News4 San Antonio.
A bond amounting to $250,000 is set on Friday for Mallory Brooke Manley. She will be facing court on November 24.
A Similar Case
In a similar case that occurred this year, a 20-year-old woman was also arrested for raping an underage boy. She was sentenced to spend eight months in prison for the case of second-degree rape of a minor.
However, she will be sentenced to 78 months of jail time if she does not obey the orders of law enforcement authorities.
Similar to the case of Manley, the 20-year-old woman also conducted sexual acts with a minor age 13 years old on multiple occasions. The suspect admitted to the crime she committed.
