Puppy saves boy from speeding truck
"Geo the Hero” rescues 10-year-old.
At just 7 months old, a puppy is being hailed as a hero for pushing a 10-year-old boy out of the path of an oncoming truck in Essex, England, in the United Kingdom.
The boy, Charlie, was waiting with his brothers and mother to cross a street earlier this month when an out-of-control truck driver came up over the curb. Geo, a German shepherd-collie mix, jumped in front of Charlie and pushed him out of the way.
The pup was hit by the truck and then struck by another car. Although Geo sustained broken bones and internal injuries, veterinarians who are caring for him expect him to make a full recovery — and according to his Facebook page, Geo the Hero, he has just returned home.

Stroll down any aisle of a Toys"R"Us these days and you'll be confronted with a billion options that are light-years beyond anything you had to entertain yourself with as a kid. Lego cruise ships (complete with flatscreen TVs in the lounge and sideboard jet-skis), battery-operated Mercedes-Benz sedans, and hi-tech tablets with Android operating systems abound. We wondered, as we let ourselves get nostalgic for a moment, if any of the beloved toys we played with as children were still even on the market. Thanks to a quick hunt on the Internet we were able to find that Fisher Price still makes their classic Two Tune TV, and you can still get your hands on a good ol' Slinky. Here's a roundup of the best old-school toys for kids-- we encourage you to click through the slideshow and consider wrapping up a well-loved classic for your little one this year.
