Dog must be part cat with 9 lives.

Miracle puppy hit by car at 70mph so hard he was embedded in the grill... and survived
Few things on Earth can survive being hit by speeding cars at 70mph and left for dead.
But this puppy is clearly a special case.
The one-year-old pooch was knocked down by driver Marco Menozzi on a side road in Cozze, southern Italy.
The Great Escape: The puppy was hit so hard he was actually embedded in the grill of the car - and survived
But in an astonishing twist of fate, Menozzi hit the pup so hard - at 70mph - that he was embedded in the grill under the bonnet of the Peugeot 207.
There he managed to cling on until the car eventually stopped - 15 miles later.
He survived the ordeal with just a broken leg and some bruising.
'He's a very lucky boy,' said one policeman.
'He was saved because he was hit so hard. Any softer and he would have bounced off the car and been crushed under the wheels.'

That is fake. The dog is laying in there very comfortably. He's using it as a bed.
There is no lic plate, the car hasn't been moved in a while.
Trust me, I am the dog whisperer ... I know these things.

Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

No ban on nudity in Seattle parks
The Seattle Parks and Recreation board has decided the city is large enough and diverse enough to include those who like to bare it all in public.
Parks commissioners have dropped an effort to have those who go nude in the parks charged with criminal trespass, The Seattle Times reported. They even said they will ask officials to consider making one of the public beaches clothing optional.
A large crowd attended Thursday night's meeting, a spokeswoman told the newspaper. Most of them, apparently, opposed criminalizing nudity.
The plan was introduced after police received complaints about the World Naked Bike Ride July 12. The event, publicizing dependency on oil, began in Gas Works Park, where the riders stripped to the buff and painted their bodies before taking off on a ride through the city.
Dewey Potter, the parks spokeswoman, said Seattle has no laws governing public undress. Washington state bans public nudity only if it offends someone or is considered a hazard.
Father Uses Two Young Sons in Attempted Burglary
Police say a 28-year-old man used his two young sons — 7 and 4 — to help him attempt to steal nearly $8,000 worth of goods from the Burlington Kmart.
Jesus Barragan of Sedro-Woolley has been charged in Skagit County Superior Court with second-degree burglary, first-degree theft and two counts of illegal possession of the drugs Clonazepam and Flexeril in the attempted burglary.
Police say when they arrived at the store, which was closed, at about 10 p.m. Tuesday, they found a van with its doors open and motor running parked in front of the front entrance. They say an automatic door to the store was open and they saw Barragan's two sons with their arms loaded with merchandise. Later, Barragan gave himself up to police.
The father told officers he had recently lost his job and needed food to feed his children.
Court documents say the merchandise added up to nearly $8,000 and damage to the store totaled more than $2,000.

Never get tired of harmless pranks

Prank NY Times: 'All the news we hope to print'
Commuters nationwide found out during Wednesday's morning rush hour that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan had ended. Global warming, health care spending and the economy's problems were on their way to solutions too.
Some 1.2 million copies of a spoof of The New York Times, dated July 4, 2009, were handed out by the liberal pranksters the "Yes Men."
The 14-page parody announces the abolition of corporate lobbying, a maximum wage for CEOs and a recall notice for all cars that run on gasoline.

Deaf Sex

Two deaf people get married and during the first week of marriage they find that they are unable to communicate in the bedroom with the lights out since they can't see each other signing, or read lips.
After several nights of fumbling around and many misunderstandings, the wife figures out a solution.
She writes: 'Honey, why don't we agree on some simple signals? For instance, at night, if you want to have sex with me, reach over and squeeze my left breast one time. If you don't want to have sex, reach over and squeeze my right breast two times.'
The husband thinks this is a great idea. He writes back to his wife, if she wants to have sex with him, reach over and pull on his penis one time. If she doesn't want to have sex, pull on his penis two hundred and fifty times.
