Harry Potter is Back?

Harry Potter, although, aging, is back in a new short story by JK Rowling.

 

The 1,500-word story, published on the writer’s Pottermore website, describes the now 33-year-old Harry as having “threads of silver” in his black hair.

A fictional gossip column written by Harry Potter journalist Rita Skeeter in the Daily Prophet says he continues to wear his glasses that she says are ‘better suited to a style-deficient 12-year-old’.

 

Skeeter writes: “One always hesitates to invade the privacy of young people, but the fact is that anyone closely connected with Harry Potter reaps the benefits and must pay the penalty of public interest.”

 

The fictional gossip column says Ron Weasley, has aged less well with his ginger hair “thinning slightly”. His wife Hermione, Harry’s wife Ginny, and their children all feature in the story. Ron entered into employment within the Ministry of Magic alongside Harry but left two years later and suggests he could even have a mental illness. [!!!!!]

Rowling also gives fans a hint of Harry’s new life by describing a mysterious cut over his cheekbone which signifies his work as an Auror.

Was it a hoax?

Remember when we talked about the three year old that was asked to leave a KFC? Turns out, that may have been a hoax!

I apologize for sensationalizing this story and being part of the problem. The thing is, no matter if this story is true or not, a little girl is being hurt. Mostly, by her grandmother who is exploiting her. Shame on you, grandmother. Shame on you.

 

This is the face of a girl that needs more than a grandmother who takes advantage of her condition.

Meet “Pig,” the Unusual Dog

Meet Pig the Unusual Dog. Her mother was feral and Pig and her siblings might have died if Pig’s barking didn’t attract the attention of Alabama native Kim Dillenbeck. [click the link up there for her Facebook page!]

Meet Pig the Unusual Dog . Her mother was feral and Pig and her siblings might have died if Pig's barking didn't attract the attention of Alabama native Kim Dillenbeck.

 

Everyone wanted to take a photo with her as she made her way around the fairground.

Pig seems to be in good health. She can run and doesn’t appear to be in any obvious pain. According to Dillenbeck, Pig thinks she’s just a normal dog.

Pig’s bizarre frame is due to the fact that she’s missing several ribs, along with part of her spine. Dillenbeck has to keep an eye on her when she eats just make sure she doesn’t choke on anything.

Pig is super vocal and playful though, and she’s definitely not afraid to bark when she wants your attention.
