MAN DISCOVERS DOG ALIVE 30 HOURS AFTER TORNADO - “Byler Dann burst into tears. Maggie was shivering, filthy and in obvious pain. But she was alive.”
This past weekend, a tornado destroyed the home of a man named Jon Byler Dann in Washington, Illinois. Byler Dann’s family was safe but their 11-year-old dog, Maggie, was missing. 30 hours later, Maggie was discovered alive buried underneath some rubble. It appears she may have survived thanks to being wrapped in a piece of carpeting. Read more from weather.com:
Before the storm, as debris started to hit his house, Byler Dann had tried to coax the family dog, Maggie, into the safe room. The skittish animal refused to leave her kennel. After the storm passed, Byler Dann emerged from the basement to find that his home of five years had been destroyed above him. Maggie was missing and Byler Dann assumed his beloved pet was dead.
Nearly 30 hours later, while searching through all that was left of 1322 Coventry Drive, family friends heard a faint bark coming from beneath where they were standing.
They immediately started digging and discovered Maggie buried beneath the rubble, wrapped in a piece of carpeting… “I felt intense relief and elation but also just panic,” Byler Dann says of finding Maggie injured. “I’m very thankful and blessed to have my wife and my children. And finding my dog today was just unreal.”
Maggie is a survivor. Hopefully she makes a smooth recovery from her injuries. Click here for the full story. (Photos and story by Charles Ledford)

Eleanor & Park isn’t some dystopian fantasy about a world where teenagers swear and are cruel to each other, and some kids have terrible parents.
Teenagers swear and are cruel to each other. Some kids have terrible parents.
Some girls have terrible stepdads who shout profanity at them and call them sluts – and some of those girls still manage to rise above it.
When these people call Eleanor & Park an obscene story, I feel like they’re saying that rising above your situation isn’t possible.
That if you grow up in an ugly situation, your story isn’t even fit for good people’s ears. That ugly things cancel out everything beautiful." — Rainbow Rowell on the censorship of Eleanor and Park. (via bellesbookshelf)
