INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (June 16, 2014) — A Southport boy is alive thanks to his pit bull that woke him up from a nap when his house caught fire.

Nick Lamb, 13, was born without the ability to hear, so the smoke alarms couldn’t wake him up, but his two-and-a-half year old pit bull Ace did. This isn’t just a story about the bond between a boy and his dog.

“Comes in my room a lot, and likes to play with me, and then, we also play out in the backyard sometimes, too,” said Nick.

In Nick’s eyes, Ace is a hero.

“Yeah, he saved my life,” Nick said. “I love him a lot more.”

Nick had gone down for an afternoon nap Wednesday and took out his cochlear as he normally does before he goes to sleep, and he didn’t hear the smoke alarms…

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — You may have forgotten, but an entire generation exists in between the Baby Boomers and Millennials.

They are called Gen X, but they are often overlooked by pollsters, the media and just about everyone else.

Born between 1964 and 1980, Gen X got its name from a 1991 book Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture, by Canadian author Douglas Coupland.

When they were coming of age in the 1990s, they were considered slackers and aimless. But then, they were just forgotten.

The Pew Research Center recently shed some light on what it termed “America’s neglected middle child.” Turns out they are less likely to be married than the Baby Boomers, but more religious than Millennials.

When it comes to social and political views, the liberal Millennials didn’t spring from nowhere. Gen Xers were already leaning that way, breaking from the more button-down Baby Boomers.

ARLINGTON, Texas – What do you think of when you see a pit bull? Friendly? Playful, even? Well, not everyone would agree.

Arlington’s finest were flagged down by some folks while responding to another call, claiming a pit bull was vicious.

But, after a closer look, Sergeant Gary Carter noticed the pit wasn’t bad to the bone.

“He was friendly, he was more trying to make friends than hurt anybody,” Carter said.

So, he and a fellow officer, lured the dog into their squad car.

“Using one of her protein bars. He didn’t want to get in at first so we had to use a little food to coax him in,” he explained.

Now that he was in custody, they wanted to find the dog’s owner. They took to Facebook and oh man, did they get some attention!

The response after they posted this photo was, well, dog-gone incredible. Over…

Rahat told him he would take him to the store and together they would turn in the lottery ticket.

“How does that sound?” Rahat asked. “That’s cool my friend,” the man…
