Thursday Good News – Dogs and Rubiks Cubes
Here’s your Thursday fix of good news!
FIREFIGHTERS RESCUE DOG STRANDED ON ROOF
Firefighters in British Columbia were called to action to rescue an animal. But instead of climbing up a ladder to save a cat stuck in a tree this time, a crew from the Victoria Fire Department arrived to find a dog stranded on a roof.
The unlucky dog — ironically named Lucky — had squeezed out an upstairs window and couldn’t climb back through.
Firefighters used a ladder with a basket attached to bring Lucky back down to safety.
Firefighter Jeffrey Cullen — who was one of the first responders on the scene — said Lucky was very cooperative.
“He made his way right to the edge and without hesitation jumped straight into the basket,” said Jeffrey.
Lucky turned out be a “kind, non-aggressive dog” and seemed very relieved to be back on solid ground.
TEENAGER MAKING FLAGS OF THE WORLD OUT OF RUBIK’S CUBES
During the pandemic, a 14-year-old from London named Mimi learned how to solve Rubik’s Cubes really fast. She can finish a cube in 26 seconds.
Mimi is now using this superpower to make 198 flags of the world out of her collection of Rubik’s Cubes, as she says, “from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe.”
She makes a replica of a flag with her cubes, takes a picture — and then it’s on to the next country.
She’s using this project to raise money for brain tumor research because she lost her uncle to the disease — and wants to help find a cure.
She’s almost halfway through all the flags of the world and has a goal of raising about $3000 before she’s done.
“I think I’d feel really accomplished if I did that,” Mimi said.
