Happy Friday! Here are some stories to help you through your work day before the weekend officially starts.

Here is a sweet story about loyalty and love. Zander, a husky rescued from a shelter, loves to run. But no one ever expected him to run to the hospital. That is exactly what the 70-pound dog did last week when his master was taken to the hospital. Zander made his way through town before a concerned pedestrian saw him outside the building and called the number on his tag. His owner says he couldn’t believe his loyal friend went to so much trouble to find him.

Imagine playing in the dirt and uncovering a prehistoric creature. That is exactly what an 11-year-old Russian boy did. He stumbled across the 30,000 year-old remains of a woolly mammoth. According to the Moscow News the boy found the beast on a peninsula in northern Russia. Scientists say this is one of the best preserved mammoths they have found in the area since the 1920’s. Its tusks, mouth and rib cage are clearly visible.

♥ Spicy or mild, beans or without, the debate is on for National Chili Month.
Chili peppers were one of the first cultivated crops. Its origins can be traced back to South America. Capcacin from the peppers pack the heat punch that’s even rated on a scientific scale.To cool off after eating the fall favorite drink some milk. Fat in the milk is key to breaking down the capcacin and take away the burn.

Have a great weekend everyone.
