CHAFFEE COUNTY, Colo. — More than two weeks into his search for a dog that he'd never met, Joe Stratmann thought about giving up. "After 16 days, the dog is probably dead," Stratmann told Dillon Thomas, a reporter for CBS4 News, a Denver TV station. On Aug. 7, Bentley, a cream-colored, one-year-old goldendoodle, was in a vehicle that was involved in a fatal crash near the Gunnison National Forest in Chaffee County, approximately 105 miles west of Colorado Springs. Bentley survived the crash, but his owner, 43-year-old Jennifer Orr, of Wichita, Kan., did not.

NEW YORK — Reigning Miss America Cara Mund, who was the first North Dakotan crowned Miss America, said it’s “possible” the organization could dethrone her just weeks before a new winner is crowned after breaching her contract, she said in a “Good Morning America” interview Thursday, Aug. 23. Per the 2018 Miss America contestant contract, because Mund’s appearance Thursday on “GMA” was not a scheduled appearance made by the Miss America organization, she is in violation of her contract and could be fired.
MINNEAPOLIS—A Minneapolis company announced Monday, Aug. 20, a new employee benefits program that allows new pet owners to take what they are calling "fur-ternity leave," a policy similar to that of maternity or paternity leave, that allows parents of new pets to work from home, the company said in a news release. Nina Hale, a digital marketing agency, implemented the program after an employee, who had recently adopted a Goldendoodle puppy, asked his supervisor if there was a way the company could accomodate his schedule to allow him to be with the puppy while still working.
