Fearing for her safety authorities have moved&#0160;her to Bogota&#39;s El Dorado airport where she will have additional guards.</p>
  51. <p><strong>Sombra’s accomplishments</strong> have made her the furry face of Colombia’s anti-drug effort. Her success has turned the dog into a folk hero in a country consumed by &#0160;bloodshed and drug violence.</p>
  52. <p><br /><strong>Unlike many law enforcement dogs</strong>, Sombra is a very friendly and playful. She has no problem with adults and children approaching her and she loves to pose for selfies. She has been the subject of several TV stories and has won two awards for bravery.</p>
  53. <p><strong>Her heroics have gotten the attention</strong> of &#0160;&quot;Otoniel,” one of the country&#39;s most wanted men and the head of one of Colombia&#39;s most powerful criminal groups.</p>
  54. <p style="padding-left: 210px;">&#0160;“The fact they want to hurt Sombra and offer such a high reward for her capture or death shows the impact she’s had on their profits,” a police spokesperson said.</p></div>

  99. <p>So it is easy for me to identify with the little stray dog who saw the players having so much fun in a recent soccer match between Georgia (the country not the state) teams&#0160;Dila Gori and Torpedo Kutaisi.</p>
  100. <p>It was the second half and since neither team had scored a point, the crowd needed some excitement.</p>
  101. <p>The little dog decided to join in the fun. She had the time of her life running around the field and even scoring some tummy scratches during her time in the spotlight before she lost interest -- to the disappointment of the crowd.</p>

  157. <p>Penny’s prize includes a one-year supply of Pedigree dog food, a $1,000 donation to Kyra&#39;s Rescue&#0160; — the organization that saved Penny&#0160;— and an appearance on the&#0160;<em>Today</em>&#0160;show.</p>
  158. <p>Penny and her family are most excited about getting the opportunity to talk about the joys of animal rescue and the great work done by Kyra’s Rescue.</p>
  159. <p>Before arriving in Sliver Spring, Penny was living as a stray on the streets of Turkey where she had her eye cruelly poked out with a rod. She had this terrible thing happen to her, but she is still joyful, according to her owners.</p>
  160. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">“I have found it enormously rewarding to have a rescue dog” says Anne Noel Occhialino, who contacted Kyra’s Rescue because her family wanted a rescue Golden Retriever, a breed which the nonprofit is known to save. Kyra’s, started in 2015, pulls dogs from the streets and shelters of Turkey and flies them to forever homes in the United States.</p>

  164. <p><strong>The American Humane Society</strong> <strong>has named Chi Chi</strong>, a 4-year-old quadruple amputee Golden Retriever from Arizona, as its 2018 American Hero Dog award recipient.</p>
  165. <p>The American Humane Hero Dog Awards is an annual campaign that recognizes both human and canine heroes. The seven lucky finalists and their human companions will be flown to Hollywood for an awards gala which will be broadcast nationwide on Hallmark Channel this fall.</p>
  166. <p>Chi Chi lives her life as a therapy dog, helping amputees. She was chosen over nearly 300 other brave dogs. More than a million people voted in the competition.</p>
  167. <p>In her past life, she was terribly abused. She was thrown into a trash bag with her legs bound and left for dead in South Korea. After she was rescued she made a miraculous recovery, even beating cancer.</p>
  168. <p>Chi Chi, who lives with her family in Phoenix, walks on four prosthetic legs.&#0160; She constantly &#0160;inspires people with her determination.</p>
  169. <p>&#0160;</p>
  170. <p><strong>Congratulations</strong> to Penny, Chi Chi, their families and the wonderful people who rescued these amazing dogs.</p></div>

  193. <p>Dr. Michelle Oblak, a veterinary surgical oncologist with the University of Guelph’s Ontario Veterinary College, worked with Galina Hayes, a small-animal surgeon at Cornell University.</p>
  194. <p>Working together, they replaced the missing piece of the skull with a 3D-printed plate, created by Adeiss, a medical technological company.&#0160;</p>
  195. <p>The surgery took about five hours during which the dog was asleep. Within half an hour of waking up, she was alert and looking around at everyone.</p>
  196. <p>She has been cancer-free for six months according to her owner, Danielle Dymeck. “She was just ready to be a dog again,&quot; she said.</p>

  200. <p>Oblak said she hopes her work could lay the groundwork for performing similar surgeries on humans. &#0160;</p>
  201. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">&#0160;&quot;What&#39;s really great about this is that we&#39;re able to use this cutting-edge technology in our animal patients, but we&#39;re also going to be able to contribute valuable information so that this can be used in humans, as well,&quot; she said.</p>

  335. <p><span style="font-family: verdana, geneva;"><strong>An Oregon man, Josh Horner, who was sentenced to 50 years in priso</strong>n for sex abuse, is a free man, thanks to the Oregon Innocence Project and a black Lab named Lucy.</span></p>
  336. <p><span style="font-family: verdana, geneva;">A judge dismisse<span style="font-size: 10pt;">d Joshua Horner’s case more than a month after he walked out of Jail when an Oregon Court of Appeals reversed his conviction. He will not have to stand trial for a second time.</span></span></p>
  337. <p><span style="font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: 10pt;">Horner, a 41-year-old plumber from Redmond, was indicted on charges of sex abuse in 2014. The case went to trial in March 2017.<span style="color: #111111;">The testimony&#0160;</span><span style="color: #111111;">from the witness was grim, a daughter accusing her father of sexual abuse.</span></span></p>
  338. <p><span style="color: #111111; font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: 10pt;">She testified that the abuse started in 2006 when she was 5-years-old and her parents divorced. She said nothing about it until 2014 because she claimed her father had threatened her family and pets.</span></p>
  339. <p style="vertical-align: baseline; margin: 2.4pt 0in 9.6pt; padding-left: 30px;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: verdana, geneva; color: #111111;">“He shot my dog Lucy right in front of me,” [she testified]. “He was just trying to touch me again and I really had enough of it and Lucy had to pay for it.”</span></p>
  340. <p>Horner insisted none of this happened. He had never been in trouble and his daughter&#39;s words were the only evidence in this she-said-he-said tragedy.</p>
  341. <p>The jury sentenced him to 50 years, even though the verdict was not unanimous.</p>
  342. <p>&#0160;</p>
  343. <p><strong>There were several red flags about the conviction</strong>. For example, the accusations were made the same week the daughter learned that her father was going to marry a woman she admitted she did not like. In fact she had made an assault charge against the new wife but local police investigated and found the claim to be baseless.</p>
  344. <p>Also there were contradictions and memory lapses in her testimony.</p>
  345. <p>&#0160;</p>
  346. <p><strong>The Oregon Innocence Project took on Horner’s case</strong> raising concerns with county District Attorney John Hummel, who agreed to work with the group. An official from his office and a volunteer began searching for Lucy, the black Lab which Horner had supposedly killed.</p>
  347. <p>They eventually found the dog in a town northwest of Portland.</p>
  348. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">&quot;She was drinking a bowl of water and sitting in shade underneath a porch. We played with her. Petted her. It was wonderful,&quot; Oregon Innocence Project volunteer Lisa Christon said, adding that Lucy had distinctive features that indicated she was the dog mentioned in the case.</p>
  349. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">&quot;She&#39;s a very distinctive-looking black Lab; not purebred. She&#39;s got this adorable shaped head and really long ears,&quot; Christon said.</p>
  350. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">&#0160;</p>
  351. <p><strong>The Lab&#39;s existence showed that the accuser was lying</strong> <strong>in her testimony.</strong> This was enough evidence for Hummel to request the case be dismissed for lack of solid evidence. The woman, Horner&#39;s daughter, also failed to show up to a meeting concerning her testimony.</p>
  352. <p>&#0160;</p>
  353. <p><strong>I’ve been on several juries</strong> but one blunt-speaking judge in giving his instructions to the jury stands out and I have never forgotten what he said:</p>
  354. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">“If a person lies about one thing, they are probably lying about other things.”</p>
  355. <p>&#0160;</p>
  356. <p><strong>Horner and his wife Kelli</strong> are eager to pick up the pieces of their lives.</p>
