Tuesday Memo: Dog on a roof … Seizure-kidnap mystery … Retirement poll

 

Hot dog to dog rescue: When a chihuahua-mix dog somehow got stuck on the roof of a Vancouver, Wash., area home yesterday, bits of a hot dog were used to entice the pup safely down from his high perch. The homeowner only noticed that the dog was on his roof after his own dog started to growl that something was amiss.

Passed out and kidnapped: This is a strange case. A man from Blaine says he was driving home from Seattle when he had a seizure. He pulled over and when he woke up, discovered he’d been kidnapped. Police found him after someone called for help. The victim’s car had been stolen. A suspect was later arrested.

Putting off retirement, delaying dementia? A study out of France says for each year you put off retirement, you might reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia by 3 percent. Would you delay retirement if it meant it would reduce this risk? Vote in our poll.

Pullman fire: You might remember the fire that destroyed several apartment buildings in Pullman over the weekend. The damage estimate has been set at $13 million.
