Students Surprise Teacher With Puppy After Loss of Beloved Dog

An Alabama teacher’s heart was broken when his beloved dog Chip disappeared from his home. 

The 11 1/2-year-old golden retriever had gone blind. 

But every day, Troy Rogers’ students would ask if there had been an update on Chip. Had he been found?

Every day Rogers would answer no, figuring Chip ran off to die, so the seniors at Clements High School knew what to do.

They raised almost $700 to get Rogers a new puppy to fill the void left by Chip, WHNT reported.

The students donated to the cause and asked Rogers’ co-workers to contribute.

A few weeks ago, a co-worker of Rogers asked him to come to her room to check something out. 

Little did Rogers know it was a setup.

His wife was there, with tears in her eyes, along with a classroom of students and his new puppy.

At first he was surprised by the students crowding the room, then he noticed something, a golden retriever puppy.

“Then he saw her, and you could tell he teared up and his face turned red. You could see the excitement in his eyes,” Miranda Ezell, a student at Clements, told the ABC news-talk show “Good Morning America.”

Rogers and his wife allowed the students to give their new puppy her name. They picked Clementine in honor of the school mascot, WHNT reported.

Rogers said he’s going to reciprocate the good deed and donate the same amount they spent on Clementine to their senior class fundraiser. 

Students at Clements High School surprised their teacher Troy Rogers with a puppy after his dog had run away.

“I think a lot of people don’t give teenagers the credit they deserve for the good hearts and kindness they have,” Rogers told “Good Morning America”. “I’m never surprised by how good they are.”

President Trump Calls In To 'Fox And Friends'

President Donald Trump called in to Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” morning show on Thursday, criticizing Democrats and the Justice Department and calling former FBI Director James Comey “a leaker and a liar” in a wide-ranging interview.

Trump called in to the news show after his pick to head the Department of Veterans Affairs, White House physician Ronny Jackson, announced he would no longer pursue the post. Jackson and the president faced criticism after reports surfaced that the doctor was accused of overprescribing pills and crashing a government vehicle while drunk.

Trump blamed Democrats for the decision, insisting that lawmakers were dragging out the process and keeping “the best people in our country” from quickly taking positions.

“I even told him a day or two ago, I saw this, where this was going," he said, telling the “Fox & Friends” hosts that Democrats were disappointed after failing to stop the nomination of former CIA Director Mike Pompeo as chief of staff.

"They thought they had him stopped. The Democrats are obstructionists, it’s horrible what they’re doing,” Trump said. “They’re not approving people. ... It’s a disgrace.”

Trump singled out Sen. Jon Tester, the top Democrat on the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, telling “Fox & Friends” that the senator from Montana will “have a big price to pay” with voters for the statements he’s made about Jackson.

"For Jon Tester to bring up stuff like 'candy man' and the kinds of things he was saying and then to say, 'Well, you know, these are statements that were made.' There is no proof of this," Trump said. "For him to be doing this to this man and his family, I think Jon Tester has to have a big price to pay in Montana. I don't think people in Montana — the admiral is the kind of person that they respect and admire — and they don't like seeing what's happened to him.”

 

The president added that Jackson has an unblemished record. Jackson, a U.S. Navy rear admiral, was appointed in 2013 by then-President Barack Obama to serve as physician to the president.

Trump hinted that he has a new nominee in mind for the post, but he declined to name the person, saying only that it was “somebody with political capabilities.”

He repeated his claim that the Justice Department investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election amounted to little more than a “witch hunt,” telling “Fox & Friends” that he had resolved to stay out of the probe but that he might change his mind.

“Because of the fact that they have this witch hunt going on with people in the Justice Department that shouldn't be there -- they have a witch hunt against the president of the United States going on -- I’ve taken the position, and I don't have to take this position, and maybe I'll change, that I will not be involved with the Justice Department,” Trump said. “It is all lies and it is a horrible thing that is going on, a horrible thing.”

The president also said memos written by Comey and leaked to the media last week included “a lot of phony stuff.”

"He didn't write those memos accurately," Trump said. He pointed specifically to Comey’s claims that the president told him on two occasions that he didn’t stay in Moscow overnight in 2013, around the time of the Miss Universe pageant.

“I went to Russia for a day or so -- a day or two -- because I own the Miss Universe pageant, so I went there to watch it,” Trump said. “He said I didn’t stay there a night. Of course I stayed there. I stayed there a very short period of time, but of course I stayed.”

The unusual call started with the president mentioning that Thursday is the birthday of his wife, first lady Melania Trump. 

 
He praised her for hosting the first couple’s first state dinner and the visit by French President Emmanuel Macron. Trump said the meetings accomplished a lot and that Macron views Iran differently than he did before he walked into the Oval Office.

Police have released new surveillance video that shows how a 12-year-old boy became stuck underwater for more than nine minutes at a resort in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, last month.

In the video, two boys can be seen playing near a 6-inch-wide suction pipe on the floor of the Avista Resort Hotel’s lazy river.

The boys were able to remove the safety grate from the pipe, and the 12-year-old repeatedly dove down to explore the pipe.

On one dive, the boy got his leg stuck and grasped the top of the grate to pull himself out. His friend tried to help him but couldn't, so he called for help.

That’s when several adults jumped into the water and tried to pull the boy out, but he remained stuck. Police said one of the men knew how to perform underwater mouth-to-mouth aid, and that helped keep the boy alive until emergency personnel arrived.

Officers quickly lifted the boy out of the river and began to perform CPR before rushing him to the hospital.

Police said the boy is alive but would not provide an update on his condition.
