    A heartwarming story about dogs. Lily is a Great Dane blinded by a bizarre medical condition that required she have both eyes removed. Madison, another Great Dane, has been her sight. The two are inseparable. They were at a shelter, but since their story went viral, they were adopted.

    They actually ended up being adopted separately. When they were originally adopted together, they ended up not getting along and were separated. They are still doing well now, albeit apart.

    Saints wideout raising money to help injured Tulane player Devon Walker

    Posted by Josh Alper on September 18, 2012, 9:38 AM EDT

    Saints wide receiver Joe Morgan doesn’t have a household name.

    He’s not letting that stop him from trying to do what he can to help an injured member of the football fraternity. Tulane player Devon Walker fractured his spine during a game against Tulsa on Sept. 8 and he remains in an Oklahoma hospital while he recovers from the injury. Dealing with such injuries requires a lot of money and Morgan is doing what he can to make sure Walker has enough of it.

    Morgan is donating tickets to this week’s game against the Chiefs, a football autographed by members of the Saints and a dinner for two to a raffle that’s being conducted on the Tulane campus. Nakia Hogan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune has more details on how to buy a raffle ticket and there are other ways to help out the Devon Walker Fund that the school has helped set up to benefit Walker and his family.

    E:60 - Jack's Heat

    Jack Burleson has a rare disorder that only affects 1 in 250,000 newborns. At Del Oro high school, that didn't stop Jack from feeling normal. He joined the track team and ran his own race.

    Hospital Graduation Fulfills Mom's Dying Wish

    This is a touching story. Kudos to everyone, but especially to school and county staff who made this possible and make it as "official" and "traditional" as it can get under the circumstances.
