On February 16th, Heather Glass found a stray dog near the Birmingham area in Alabama. This dog had a swollen paw and was malnourished. Heather, who has fostered many dogs in the past, took the dog under care. Named Bruno, the pup made a quick recovery, overcoming its paw problem and becoming happy and healthy. On Facebook, Jessica Marie related to the story by telling of her own rescues, saying, “Aww. Yep I can't even count the number of cats I've rescued and gotten healthy. I foster for save a pet and they are usually sick when they come from the shelter.” And, Dmacc502 had a message for Heather, saying, “Bless you for what you do, we have so many strays.”

Throughout the week, News 4 This Morning is taking a look back at discontinued brands and/or models of cars. On Monday, we featured both the Mercury brand and the Ford Pinto car. Some of our viewers shared their experiences with one or both of those vehicles. Patricia Shaw commented, “79 Pinto, one of the best cars I ever owned, went for miles on a gal of gas and had some major pick up on it LOL...” Karen Searcy said, “My daddy owned a '72 Brown Ford Pinto Wagon. He used almost like a truck. Hauled everything in it and also as his work vehicle.” And, Lisa Mock replied, “ I had a Mercury Grand Marquis and I so loved that car. It was like riding on air. I was sad to hear that the Mercury line was being discontinued.”

March 10th was unofficially Mario Day, because Mar10 looks like the name of the iconic Nintendo video game hero. On that day, News 4 This Morning asked some of its followers to share their favorite Mario games. And, you can see even more of those picks and comments in the video above!

Roku, a company behind streaming video home entertainment devices, recently revealed the “streaming stick,” a $50 device that is the size of a pack of bubble gum. Despite its small size, it can stream hundreds of video apps, including popular services like Amazon Instant Video and Netfix. Abbey Pollan commented about the device, saying, “We just got ours this week and love it. We can link it to our smartphones.” Becky Weeks-Garry added, “I love my Roku!” And, Bethany and Eric Culver said, “I have this. Is pretty cool but it glitches.”

The March 7th edition of Food Friday combined with that day's unofficial holiday: Cereal Day! On that day, News 4 This Morning asked its friends and followers what their favorite cereals were. With over eight dozen responses, we couldn't possibly share all of them on Friday, but we can share a few more of them in the video above!
