After losing their home to California’s deadliest wildfire, one couple had an unexpected reunion with their loyal pet.
K9 Paw Print Rescue, a non-profit, Bay Area-based animal rescue group, said on Facebook this week that the couple returned to the site of their lost home in Paradise, Calif., and their beloved dog Madison was there as well.

A President bullying people and a state in a time of utter disaster and devastation, blaming them for events that are beyond their control. Such cruelty and callous disregard for loss of life, property and dignity is totally un-presidential behaviour, yet sadly, such has seemingly become the norm for this administration.
