(WWBT) - It was such a nice, warm week! It’s makes us ready for summer. One thing to look forward to though this week is Valentine’s Day. Even if you aren’t celebrating with a significant other, perhaps doing something kind to put a smile on someone else’s face can still make you’re entire day, and their’s as well.

PAWtrol

If you’re looking for a new friend, look for the pups in yellow scarves tagging along with Chesterfield police! Chesterfield’s new Community PAWtrol program will allow dogs who are available for adoption to join community policing officers on patrol once a week.

GOOD GIRL!

An 11-year-old pit bull is being hailed as a hero by police and her owner after she forced her way out of her home and alerted officers to a natural gas leak inside. This pup is definitely a hero! Good job, Sadie!

Happy Little Art Class

It was happy trees, sky blue shirts and big auburn wigs everywhere when 50 art students at a Texas middle school dressed up like Bob Ross. The teacher said it was a way to reward them and practice their skills.

Final Thought

“You simply have to put one foot in front of the other and keep going. Put blinders on and plow right ahead.” - George Lucas

That’s exactly how we’re thinking about getting through Monday! Have a good week, everyone!
