The story goes that Stallone sold his dog outside a liquor store for $50 in the early 1970s because he was broke and nearly homeless. Then, once the actor managed to write and sell the script for “Rocky,” he bought the dog back for $15,000 so it could star in the upcoming movie.
The basic facts of the story are true. Stallone and his wife moved from New York to Hollywood with his bullmastiff, Butkus, in the mid 1970s, Stallone said in an interview:
“On our way from New York to Hollywood to seek our fortune, the heat became so intense that we had to pack old Butkus in cracked ice for two days. I promised him that if we survived, he’d someday get treated like a king. But I almost changed my mind when he practically got us killed in a wildlife preserve. An exceptionally large ostrich decided to peck him to death and attacked the car. Rather than being diplomatic, Butkus jumped out in a counter attack and I practically got slaughtered trying to separate them. By the time I got him back in the old car for a quick escape, the thing stalled and a herd of unhappy buffalo descended and attempted to upset the car with us in it. In the middle of all that confusion, Butkus jumped in the back seat and went to sleep.”
Then, six months before Stallone hit it big with “Rocky,” he sold his dog to a family to help make ends meet. Stallone eventually talked the family into giving Butkus back so that he could star in the movie, the actor explains:
“The other family had owned him for six months,” Stallone says. “They weren’t exactly thrilled, but I said, ‘Please.’ I said, ‘This dog belongs in the movie.’ He had suffered along with me for two years. I said, ‘Please let him have a shot in the movie.’”
Mercifully, the family relented and Stallone’s dog starred in two “Rocky” films. He even appears in the credits as Butkus Stallone.
So, it’s true that Stallone sold his dog before his big break. But Stallone didn’t sell his dog to an unknown man outside a liquor store, and there’s no proof that he paid 15,000 to get Butkus back, as the eRumor claims.
Pop question: your dog and a stranger are drowning, who do you save?
For most people, dogs are treated as family members, beloved friends, lifelong companions. But if someone approached you on the street and offered you $10,000 cash for your dog, would you take it? What about $100,000??

Two teenage boys were safe and sound Wednesday after spending three cold, dark, and no doubt harrowing days lost in the catacombs beneath the streets of Paris. According to the BBC, the two boys, ages 16 and 17, were rescued early Wednesday following a four-hour effort by search teams with rescue dogs. They were taken to a nearby hospital and treated for hypothermia, though authorities say they were otherwise unharmed. The temperature in the pitch-black passageways is about 59 degrees Fahrenheit, notes AFP.
The catacombs, which house the bones of approximately 6 million dead, form a 150-mile maze beneath the city. Only a small portion of the catacombs are open to the public, but partygoers and enthusiasts known as “cataphiles” have been known to access the other tunnels through secret entrances. Authorities have not reported who sounded the alarm about the missing boys or how they got into the catacombs, but the operator of the official museum says he knows of nobody ever getting lost in the public portion of the tunnels.

Customs agents and a drug sniffin' dog busted a woman attempting to smuggle 6 bricks of cocaine -- worth nearly $500k -- in the cushion of her wheelchair.
Yoncela Stanley arrived at the JFK Airport Sunday from St. Lucia, and allegedly had the load of blow tucked under and behind her in the motorized chair. The K9 wasn't fooled though, and alerted Customs and Border Protection Officers who noticed the back seat cushion looked "unusual." 6 bricks and 2 clear bags of coke -- tipping the scales at 27 lbs. and worth $468,000 -- would definitely be unusual. Stanley was booked for importation of a controlled substance.

After months of trash talk, Mayweather vs. McGregor is officially on. The fight is set for August 26 in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena.
Ireland's McGregor (21-3), a 28-year-old southpaw, is the first UFC fighter to simultaneously hold titles in two different divisions and one of the best MMA fighters in the world, but he will be making his professional boxing debut against Mayweather, one of the greatest boxers in history.
Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) also has the chance to finish off his career at a perfect 50-0 in a bout that few expect to be competitive but has nonetheless piqued the public's interest because of the boxing-versus-MMA angle, not to mention the big personalities and trash-talk ability of both fighters.
Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight finalized for Aug. 26
Guess what day it is. It's National 'Send A Nude Day', no seriously it is. 'Send A Nude Day', not to be confused with 'Send Your Man A Nude Day' which is April 22, was made an official day in 2016 by the people put in charge of these things, random people on twitter.
While it is cool to celebrate this sorta holiday, it is important that you remember some simple dos and don'ts when it comes to share a pic of your tacos, melons and eggplants.
Send a pic to that special someone in your life. Nothing spices up a relationship more than some naughty pics to preview what may happen later that night.
Don't send a pic to someone you are about to date, or only had a few dates with. Most likely this will make the person runaway screaming. Your relationship is probably not there yet.
Send your nude via Snapchat. Using this form of social media is great for a day like this. You can send those pics and be confident that in 24 hours they will disappear. Yes the person can always screenshot it but that's kinda rude and at least you will know if they did.
Post that pic to your Snapchat story. If your gonna send it via Snap, just send it to the friends you want seeing your goods. If you don't want any and every person seeing it, your snap story is a poor place to put it.
Make it fun, pics are so 2016. Try a short video, do a little dance, have fun with it. This is supposed to be something that makes the recipient smile not fall asleep.
Go to far with the video. Fun is fun but we don't always need a full length show. If it's a planned thing then go for it, put a surprise 10 minute wank session isn't always gonna be well received. Plus why get to the end alone, it's much more fun with a partner.
And Finally DON'T:
Send pics to strangers. It's not cool, especially if you're a guy. If she doesn't know you, your exposed member is not the way to introduce yourself. Try words first, break the ice, you never know she may ask for it once she gets to know you. For the ladies, sending to strangers isn't wise for you either, but guys do then to be more forgiving.
Hope these rules help you in celebrating a fun, safe and revealing 'Send A Nude Day.'
