Joplin 20 days later

biped......"Two weeks ago a woman thought she heard a dog wimpering in a pile of rubble 15 miles from where the Joplin tornado had passed. After searching a while she gave up but the sounds kept nagging at her so last Saturday she went back and checked again. This time she started pulling the boards and stuff apart and once more she heard wimpering. This time nothing could stop her and she kept digging until she dug out ......

Bently."




Biped....."Bently was dropped off at the shelter with just scrapes on his nose. Vets can't tell if his blindness is caused by old age or the tornado. If his owners don't claim him he'll be put up for adoption next week. Speaking of which, all unclaimed pets will go up for adoption next weekend with the provision that if their owner shows up at a later date that the owner will get their pet back."

biped...."As far as Bently's concerned, he has nothing to worry about. He's grouped with the handicapped pets and already has two women fighting over the right to adopt him."
