man's best friend

Jon Tumilson, a Navy SEAL, was one of 30 Americans killed in Afghanistan on Aug. 6 when a rocket-propelled grenade took out a U.S. Chinook helicopter. He was mourned at a service in Rockford, Iowa, attended by 1,500 family members,  friends--and Hawkeye, Tumilson's dog.
The Labrador retriever was such an important part of Tumilson's life that the friends and family of the San Diego resident called the dog his "son."

When Tumilson's friend Scott Nichols walked to the front of the room to speak, Hawkeye followed, reports. "As Nichols prepared to memorialize his friend, Hawkeye dutifully laid down near the casket," Scott Stump writes.

Harry Potter the "Empire"

empire magazine dedicated a pretty substantial portion of their recent issue to a celebration of mr. potter and friends. i only wish i had purchased it... at least now i can look at these pictures on my blog.

"no story lives unless someone wants to listen.  the stories we love best do live in us forever.
  so whether you come back by page or by the big screen, hogwarts 
will always be there to welcome you home."
