After a long week of health care drama, here are three things to put a smile on your face.

1. A kid after Sybil Wilkes‘ heart. 

11-year-old Sidney Keys III of St. Louis, launched his own reading club for boys, called Books N Bros, St. Louis Public Radio reported earlier this week.


2. The best viral fight video of all-time 

In case you missed this awesome story about a man who was recorded breaking up a fight between two boys in his neighborhood. Learn more here.


3. The perfect match 

8-year-old Carter Blanchard and 13-year-old black Lab retriever Rowdy are new friends bonded over their shared skin condition, vitiligo.

UPDATE ON ROWDY . Rowdy saw a neurologist in the ER today. They are not sure if it was a seizure or a stroke or something else. They did a lot of tests and without a "much needed" (expensive) MRI and CT Scan, we may never know. He could have a tumor or a mass causing a lot of his issues. . We left with them prescribing a new medication for seizures as well as some codeine for his pain. This could be age related, an isolated event, or he may have more episodes like today. . I want to thank EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU for the prayers, well wishes, and support! It is truly overwhelming to see the kindness and love this pup has from around the world! We love you all! Please continue to follow along the amazing adventure we are having with Carter and his mom from Arkansas! While Rowdy started his day with a scare and a trip to the ER, he was able to end it meeting up with Carter, another beautiful little girl Emma from Eugene, and some dear family friends for a play date and then squeezed in a photo shoot to boot. . This dog never ceases to amaze me with his resilience!!
