Something told Debi Konrad she needed to go to her mom's house March 25. She couldn't put her finger on it, but somehow, some way, she knew - something was very wrong.
"It's hard to describe," she said. "Something was pulling me that way."
Around 5 p.m. that cold Tuesday night, Konrad pulled her truck into her mom's driveway in Weston. Her mom had some eggs for her and suggested Konrad swing by to pick them up on the way home.
Konrad wasn't looking forward to picking up the eggs. She was tired and had a long day at work - but something stopped her from driving past.
"I went over there and noticed something in the pond. At first, I thought it was geese," she said. "And then I realized, no it's not - it's Charlie."
Charlie, Konrad's brown and black 75-pound rescued boxer, had been staying at her mother's house until she found him a permanent home.
Now, Konrad saw, the dog had fallen through the ice into 16-feet deep pond.
She slammed the truck in park and got out.

Bowling Green State University students danced their hearts out for a good cause this weekend.
The 19th annual Dance Marathon - known as ZiggyThon - was held at the Perry Field House, and raised more than $275,484.
The money goes to benefit Mercy Children's Hospital in Toledo and the Children's Miracle Network.
The funds help in sending children to therapy camps, buying medical supplies and equipment, and other uses.
Dance Marathon is one of the largest student-run philanthropies in the state of Ohio, and holds events year-round, including a Mini Marathon, an Extra Life video game fundraiser, and a benefit dinner. The ZiggyThon finale, held this year on Saturday and Sunday, includes 32 hours of dancing and attracts hundreds of participants annually. The event also incorporates a more-than 180-mile bicycle ride called Bike for Tikes. The bike ride is the only one of its kind in the state, and lasts three days.

It's 9:29 p.m. and Arielle Beachy knows in one minute, she'll be hunted down.
The BGSU junior glances around the deck of campus' Jerome Library. She can't see any zombies - yet.
The whistle blows and Beachy sprints toward fraternity row. She has two goals - find her mission's objectives and stay alive.
"It was an adrenaline rush because we wanted it done quickly," she said. "Around any corner, around any bush, there could be a zombie waiting for you."
Beachy is one of the rapidly declining "humans" in the biannual game, "BG Undead."
The game is the largest student-run organization at BGSU and lasts about a week each spring and fall semester.
Chemical regs hit snag in House PDF Print E-mail

A funny thing happened when activists pushed for stronger regulations of chemicals in consumer products.
A House subcommittee leader introduced a bill environmental and health advocates say would weaken the outdated, ineffective laws already in place.
The Senate had been working on a bill that incorporated the input it sought from public health and environmental officials, but the House's version instead includes only suggestions made by chemical companies, said Andy Igrejas, director of the Safer Chemicals Healthy Families Initiative based in Washington, D.C.
"(The Senate) actually had a good process leading up to this - they had a lot of hearings, they heard from a lot of voices - and then the result was something that really just ignored everything that didn't come from a chemical company," Igrejas said.
"The problem with the House bill is it came after all of that debate in the Senate, and yet there seemed to be a deliberate decision to ignore all of the issues that had been raised."
Igrejas said the Chemicals in Commerce Act, a House discussion draft introduced Feb. 27, focuses on not impacting commerce at the expense of public health and environmental concerns, the driving cause behind a push to reform the dated law currently regulating chemicals on the market.
Rather than put more power behind the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976, the House bill as introduced would keep intact the same ineffective federal standard of restricting chemicals and weaken states' abilities to be more vigilant, Igrejas said.
