Klay Thompson brings the excitement back to the Warriors, unleashing a barrage in the savage win over the Lakers in the fourth quarter

With the return of Stephen Curry, it feels like old times in the Golden State (Author: Gardener)

ThompsonIf you were one of the people worried whether Klay Thompson would ever return to his pre-injury form after more than two calendar years without NBA basketball with a cruciate ligament tear and a torn Achilles tendon, rest your mind. He's not quite back, but he's clearly the same old sniper who just finished shaking off the rust. Thompson scored 33 points in Golden State's 105-103 win over the Lakers on Saturday, his first 30-point game since Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals when he tore his cruciate ligament. Thompson made 5 of 9 from 3 and 10 of 22 shots overall, and 16 of his points came in an electric fourth quarter. Thompson has the quick trigger going again, pulling from a variety of angles, on the move, catching passes at eye level and not even getting the ball down, just letting it fly in one motion. Old Clay is coming. Thompson missed a potentially game-changing 15-footer on the buzzer in Golden State's loss to the Knicks on Thursday. The point was getting the shot in the first place. Since his return, we've seen a healthy diet of dribbling generation from Thompson and pull-up midrange jumpers. Curry's relative 3-point struggles have been well-recorded this season, but while he used to push from beyond the arc, trying to pick his way through a career-worst stretch of hard, contested 3's, he's recently got back to to establish an overall rhythm in the intermediate distances. When he does that, he suddenly comes to the edge and ends up feeling more confident. He gets into his pocket more with his grip. He just looks like he's lively again with the ball in his hands, with great pace, and that makes it so that his 3-point line doesn't completely dictate his night. On Saturday, Curry only made one of his eight 3-pointers, but he shot 6 of 9 from the arc and played great. If he plays like this, the 3-point throws fall. The bugs are already looking better, more a matter of time than the completely out of rhythm clunks we saw in December and most of January. With Thompson bombing away and Curry clearly getting by, there's a real buzz surrounding this team again. They played pretty well and great at times for most of the season, but even the great record didn't feel like how this team has felt since Klay returned, and it certainly hasn't felt like it did at felt like Saturday night. They won with defense and depth and a few blitzes of old curry. From game to game, Thompson, whose minute limit has been raised from 25 to 30 minutes, looks more and more like his old self. And the Warriors, more broadly, feel like an avalanche-in-waiting offense again. They feel like a show again. It's just different when they start to get hot. They don't play every night like they did in the days before Durant, but you can feel it around the corner. With the way Jonathan Kuminga plays (that guy's an emerging monster), with Andrew Wiggins playing a great two-way ball with great depth when Draymond Green eventually comes back, the Warriors will be in playoff time be a tough customer.

Shaun White finishes fourth at the last Olympics, ending his extraordinary career

Three-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White finished fourth in the last competition of his career. (Author: Gardener)

OlympicsCompeting in the final contest of his long and storied career, US snowboarding legend Shaun White finished fourth, just missing out on the podium at his fifth Winter Olympics. The sport's oldest statesman put on a strong second run in Friday's halfpipe final, cleaning up a trick that previously gave him trouble to post an 85.00. But Switzerland's Jan Scherrer's 87.25 ultimately held for bronze, giving White an identical result to his finish in Sochi eight years earlier, just 2.25 shy. "It's been a journey, I'm just so happy and thank you all from the bottom of my heart," White said, crying. The 35-year-old ended his career as a three-time Olympic gold medalist, 13-time Winter X Games winner and six-time World Cup winner. Japan's Ayumu Hirano, a silver medalist at the last two Olympics, eventually clinched his gold medal by stomping historic triple corks on the first hits of his three heats. He scored a 96.00 on his final run to seal the win. Reigning X-Games World Champion Scotty James of Australia took the silver with a score of 92.50, and White's teammates Taylor Gold and Chase Josey finished fifth and seventh. “I'm so happy for Ayumu [Hirano] to watch him do this run. Unbelievable," White said. "It was the run of his life for him and to put it bluntly, I'm so proud of him... I feel it for Scotty, I know he's happy with second place, but I know he's gold." wanted.” After completing his final run, White was greeted by a slew of competitors who congratulated him on his incredible career. "So much respect for Shaun," James said. Ayumu Hirano, who was three years old when White won his first X Games medal, said, "Shaun has been challenging as always, he's the oldest here and he's always showing me things that I haven't gotten to experience yet." All "He's a huge idol for everyone else that rode today," Scherrer said. White started his first run with a big frontside double cork 1440, but struggled a bit with his next hit, landing a cab double 1080- Attempt at the heel edge of his board. He recovered with a sky hook, a signature double McTwist 1260, and nailed a frontside double 12 to finish the run strong for a 72.00. On his second run, he cleaned up the routine and increased the front Double 14 at a ton of speed ahead of a crucial stick of the cab double 10. In cruise control he closed with another sky hook, double mctwist 12 and frontside 12. On run 3 with the pressure and the continued possibility of a triple ve Trying to put a berth on his career, White fell on his second hit - an attempt at a cab double cork 1440 - and r Ode fell down the middle of the pipe, his helmet held high. "I would have liked to give up [the last run] ... I had some trouble in my hind leg for some reason, it gave up on every run, I don't know why," White said. "I would have loved to go out with everyone one last time, but you don't always get what you want, you get what you need." White entered the final as the No. 4 qualifier behind Ayumu, James and Japan's Ruka Hirano and counted not one of the favorites to win gold at the Winter Games for the first time ever. The snowboarding icon told TODAY last month that this would likely be his "last run" and then confirmed the decision at a pre-games press conference. He said he realized it was time in a surreal moment while sitting alone in a chairlift watching the sunset. White took a more than three-year break from competition after his victory in South Korea. He started the 2022 US Olympic qualifiers just behind the Aspen podium in fourth, then finished eighth at Copper and seventh at Dew Tour before taking a third place finish at the Laax Open in January to essentially match his monumental fifth place finish to seal the games. Four years later, White made his Olympic debut at the Torino Games as a 19-year-old with mop hair and was later nicknamed "The Flying Tomato" for his long red hair, a nickname he later dropped out of sheer annoyance. White, wearing an American flag bandana over his face, got off to a slow start in qualifying but bounced back to set the highest score. With none of his competitors able to top him on their second heats, White was able to pull off a victory lap through the pipe. There, at a location accessible only by helicopter, White secretly dialed in his latest tricks, including the double McTwist 1260, or "Tomahawk". All the training paid off for him and he secured the win on the strength of his first run. Able to pull off a lap of honor, White opted for the double McTwist 1260, now his signature trick. He landed it, capped his performance with an exclamation mark, and won his second straight gold medal. But when he competed in a pipe with less than ideal conditions, he couldn't give up the run he wanted. After falling on the first attempt, White couldn't land his new trick - the Cab Double Cork 1440 - cleanly on the second run and ended up fourth on the podium. Swiss rider Iouri Podladtchikov, a good friend of White's, performed a clean version of the same trick during his run to help himself to a gold medal. White did not disappoint in his return to games competition. He led qualifying, opening with a first run of 94.25 after James hit a 92.00. Ayumu Hirano, then 19, fell on his first run but followed up with two consecutive double cork 1440s for a 95.25. With the final drop-in of the competition, White put on one of the best shows of his career, landing back-to-back combos of 1440s himself to set an Olympic men's halfpipe best of 97.75 and secure his third gold, coincidentally Team USA's 100th Winter Olympics title.

NFL analyst makes bold contract statement for Lamar Jackson

How much will Lamar Jackson's next contract be worth? (Author: Gardener)

NFLThe Baltimore Ravens and former NFL MVP Lamar Jackson will eventually sit down to discuss his next contract. Once those negotiations begin, how much will Jackson and his camp consider a fair deal? One NFL writer isn't sure Jackson will be asking for a salary over $40 million a season. In a recent episode of Heavy Presents... I'm just saying Heavy.com writer Ryan Sanudo questioned Jackson's worth -- at least in that area. The entire panel was asked how much Jackson could get for his new contract. "I'll say lower than Dak Prescott and closer to the Russell Wilson range, which is $35 million a year," Sanudo said. That's a bit startling considering Jackson is 24 and has already won an NFL MVP award, but Sanudo offered more explanation for his projection. I think around $35 million for Jackson and people are going to look at that deal when we get into the top 10 quarterback money. People are going to be like Kyler Murray about Patrick Mahomes money. The main question here is, does the $35 million mark underpay Jackson? "Maybe $33-$35 million a year." There's a chance the Ravens could anger Jackson by approaching him with that offer given what the other top quarterbacks in the NFL are getting. According to Sporting News, the following list of quarterbacks is ranked in order of highest average annual salary. If the Ravens do what Sanudo suggested, Jackson would be offered a deal tying him for the fifth-highest wage in his position. Jackson's team could argue that he should be paid as much or more than the Buffalo Bills are paying Josh Allen. Jackson has an MVP to his credit, which Allen doesn't. However, Allen has helped lead the Bills to more postseason appearances and games (3-3) compared to Jackson (1-3). Both clearly look up to the Kansas City Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes for regular-season, post-season, and head-to-head success. Allen has never beaten Mahomes in the playoffs and Jackson is 1-4 against the Chiefs superstar. Apparently, based on a mix of individual and team performances, Jackson's fair pay would be around $40 million per season. That $35 million range is just too small. There are some interesting free-agent wide receivers out there, and the Ravens could really use a burly guy who could be a second big target for Jackson. He helped make tight end Marc Andrews one of the best at his position in the NFL, but another possession receiver with a huge radius would be a win for the Ravens. Guys like Allen Robinson or Mike Williams would be great for the Ravens and Jackson, and those guys are free agents. He might get the franchise tag considering Justin Herbert probably doesn't want to lose one of his top goals. Robinson played under the tag for the Chicago Bears in 2021 and had a disappointing season. Robinson is still considered one of the better receivers in the NFL, but his inability to stand on one side with rookie quarterback Justin Fields and Matt Nagy's clumsy offense resulted in the veteran wideout's worst season on record. If so, the Ravens could sign Robinson on a one-year deal. Follow the Heavy on Patriots Facebook page for the latest Patriots-related breaking news, rumours, content and more!

Sens ends the week with a win in D.C. as Brown scores the 200th point

The Ottawa Senators returned to victory on Super Bowl Sunday thanks to a 4-1 away win in Washington.

... (Author: Gardener)

the weekThe Ottawa Senators returned to victory on Super Bowl Sunday thanks to a 4-1 away win in Washington. The Ottawa Senators returned to victory on Super Bowl Sunday thanks to a 4-1 away win in Washington. The win ended a busy week for the Senators, while Connor Brown's win marked a career milestone, as detailed by Three Thoughts. A brutal five-game-in-seven-day stretch has come to an end for the Senators. With Sunday's 4-1 win, the Sens ended the week with a 3-2-0 record, with Connor Brown using the word "resilient" to describe the team's performance. "It's not easy to play 5-in-7 in this league, especially against teams like Pittsburgh, Boston and Washington," Brown said. "The lads have been fighting hard this week and [the win] feels good." Ottawa won Monday and Tuesday after wins over New Jersey and Carolina. They had a slip up the middle because although the Sens conceded just four goals overall, first against Pittsburgh on Thursday and Boston on Saturday, the Sens were twice knocked out 2-0. However, the Sens ended the week with an away win in D.C. on Super Bowl Sunday, when they won in Washington for the first time since Jan. 21, 2014. "Everyone stepped up and everyone upped their game," said Brady Tkachuk. The Sens have Monday off but host St. Louis on Tuesday as they will play six games over the next 12 days through the end of February. Five of the Senators' remaining games this month will be played at the Canadian Tire Center as their lone road contest is a trip to Buffalo on Feb. 17. Connor Brown achieved a significant personal milestone on Sunday afternoon when he recorded the 200th point of his career. "It means a lot," Brown said of the milestone. When you hit milestones like this, you need to reflect and see the help people [gave] to get you there that year at 10:29 to cement Ottawa's 4-1 win. Earlier in the week, Brown had scored his 100th point with the Senators, becoming the 43rd player to do so. Brown needed 253 games to get to 99 points with the Maple Leafs, but since taking over in an expanded role at Ottawa in 2019, he's only needed 158 games to reach 101 points with the Senators and 200 career points. "Four years ago I scored eight goals and I didn't know where my career was going," Brown said of his 2018-19 season. “I've had a fresh start here and I'm grateful for that and for the city of Ottawa and this team. "I'm going to try to keep getting better but of course it feels good to reach 200 but it's over and [now] I have to keep pushing." Sunday once again showed Nick Paul's incredible versatility. After 21:37, his second most ice time of the season, Paul had one assist, picked up 24 faceoffs (he won 50 percent) and dished out three hits. He saw 3:19 ice time on the power play and 2:51 on penalties. "Paulie is 26, but he's only played about 200 games in this league," Brown said. “I know I definitely got better and better in my first 200 games and I see that in Paulie. He's getting better every week and every game." When you get a guy with that level of skill, a big guy who plays it right and can also drop them with one of the toughest guys in the league, we're lucky to have him in Having our team competed against the Caps All-Star: "Nick was great," said Sens head coach D. We didn't need that, Wilson is one of the toughest guys in the league, and he obviously felt like he could made freedom on chabby. Paul has been outstanding for the Senators this season, making countless moves from wing to center. His nine goals this season are a career-high while he's five points away from his career-best 20. In 44 games, the 483 faceoffs he has completed this year is already a career high, as is his 234 wins.

The Arizona Cardinals need to mend their relationship with Kyler Murray ASAP

The Arizona Cardinals need Kyler Murray far more than the quarterback needs his current franchise. So, with the 2019 draft pick, the Cardinals front office had better get acquainted with their current situation in a hurry... (Author: Gardener)

The Arizona CardinalsThe Arizona Cardinals need Kyler Murray far more than the quarterback needs his current franchise. As such, the Cardinals front office had better get used to the #1 draft pick of 2019 with their current hiring in a hurry. Murray has all influence in this situation despite concerns about him within the organization. Sources described the 24-year-old quarterback as "selfish, immature and someone who's pointing the finger at ESPN's Chris Mortensen." Mortensen added, "Arizona coach Kliff Kingsbury is to look for himself where he can provide better alternatives to help Murray... Meanwhile, select veterans of the team are hoping to reach out to Murray on how the 24-year-old can become better at dealing with adversity." ." Conversely, Murray believes he was made a scapegoat for the team's disappointing performance during the Cardinals' 34-11 loss in the wild card round to eventual Super Bowl champions, the Los Angeles Rams. In the contest, Murray graduated 55.9 percent of his passes for just 137 yards and two interceptions.Those within the organization weren't happy when Murray pulled out of playoff contention, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.Two weeks ago, the quarterback took his Instagram account from everyone Cardinals references searched After a disappointing ending, some sort of post-season hangover should be expected But the Cardinals can feel n not let it last much longer. Murray has not faced much adversity throughout his sports career. Up until the last three seasons in the desert, he's been a winner and an elite talent at almost every turn. Since Murray and Kingsbury became the faces of the franchise, the Cardinals have had a mediocre 24-24-1 regular season record. A little self-reflection would go a long way, as would understanding that the Cardinals are no better in the lineup without him. The manager's realization that he needs to find alternatives to help Murray is an excellent step in the right direction. As The Action Network's Matt Mitchell noted, late-season collapses are nothing new for Kingsbury-led teams: Following the 2021 campaign, the Cardinals had three or four wide receivers on field Warren Sharp 72 percent of the time, according to Sharp. But the Cardinals did their best as they adjusted the scheme and found a way to spread defense to keep the ball running. Surprisingly, the Cardinals finished seventh this season with 496 carries. Granted, Murray made 88 of those as the quarterback finished third on the team with 423 yards. Murray should continue to be part of Arizona's ground attack, with the coaching staff helping him choose his spots. Despite the heavy emphasis on sets with multiple receivers, the Cardinals offense went haywire when DeAndre Hopkins suffered a season-ending cruciate ligament tear in Week 14. “And that opens up other aspects of your offense and so he has great value when it comes down to being on the field and unfortunately we didn't have him. The scheme is far too dependent on Hopkins as the star playmaker and Murray creating outside of the structure. To help the quarterback, improvements along the offensive line coupled with investments in the running game could take pressure off both. Arizona is old on the starting front 5. Left guard Justin Pugh, middle Rodney Hudson, right guard Max Garcia and right Tackle Kelvin Beachum Jr. will all be 31 years or older by the end of the 2022 campaign. The Cardinals can maintain their approach while making significant improvements at multiple positions. Currently, the organization has little wiggle room under the projected salary cap, according to Spotrac. However, the Cardinals can Win $9.8 million simply by releasing Pugh. The entire organization is in a tight spot with Conner, Garcia, Chandler Jones, Christian Kirk, Zach Ertz, Chase Edmonds, AJ Green and Maxx Williams all free agents. However, the draft could be the salvation for the offensive line and backfield. The 23rd overall pick belongs to the Cardinals. There, the organization can focus on adding Zion Johnson of Boston College (as in Bleacher Report's latest mock draft), Trevor Penning of Northern Iowa, or Bernhard Raimann of Central Michigan. Conner became a key component on offense that year with a career-high 15 rushing touchdowns. Meanwhile, Edmonds has 903 offensive yards in just 12 games. These types of additions help bring about the changes needed for the offense to succeed against better competition. The Cardinals need to get more physical and talented in the trenches and stop Murray from playing too much hero ball. Good faith moves in the near future aren't exactly helping the current Imbroglio. A long-term gesture could go a long way in restoring Murray's confidence and thereby spurring the quarterback's re-signing for the job. The pick-up window for Murray's Year Five options opens this off-season. Additionally, early negotiations should help in terms of the overall value the Cardinals can achieve by signing Murray to a long-term deal sooner rather than later, especially after both sides had disappointing season endings. These overtures have the potential to show that the organization is not scapegoating and committed to Murray, as it should be. Still, Murray is the Cardinals' best shot at fighting for a title in a league where elite quarterback play is mandatory. The Cardinals already play in the same division as the reigning Super Bowl champion. The two teams split their competitions in the regular season. Murray can be as good, if not better, than any other quarterback in the NFC depending on where Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson end up this offseason. Stafford found the perfect fit in the City of Angels, but Murray brings a whole different dynamic to the games with his incredible speed and athleticism. The Cardinals' quarterback fits the image of the new generation. A festering situation is the last thing Arizona wants. Prescott is an ideal example of a team treating their quarterback improperly by stringing them together. Ultimately, the Cowboys relented and gave their starter a four-year, $160 million contract extension. Rodgers and Wilson either held back or silently asked for a trade, only to play with the same team the following season. There were mixed results, but teams ultimately put aside everything to do business with their most prominent players. However, Murray has options if he really wants to push. Today's athletes are more than capable of forcing themselves out of certain situations. In Murray's case, he can also play his trump card by threatening to quit football altogether and play pro baseball. Arizona can benefit from trading Murray and acquiring numerous draft assets. As a result, the cardinals cannot let this situation fester. Even if they are, a quarterback of Murray's caliber is worth changing the current direction of the franchise by letting him steer the ship. Otherwise, the organization will be back where it started without a good triggerman behind center as one of the worst teams in the league.

HEAR chooses DPA to capture the magic of Tony Bennett's final live performances

For Tony Bennett's final live performances with Lady Gaga at Radio City Music Hall, HEAR's GRAMMY-winning recording engineers Jody Elff and John Harris used a variety of DPA mics for the orchestral recordings. (Author: Gardener)

Tony Bennett'sHEAR Selects DPA to Capture the Magic of Tony Bennett's Final Live Performances For Tony Bennett's last two live performances at New York's Radio City Music Hall, HEAR selected a variety of DPA microphones for the orchestral recording. Legendary crooner Tony Bennett recently took the stage for the "One Last Time" concerts at Radio City Music Hall alongside longtime friend and collaborator Lady Gaga, and the performances were nothing short of magical. Because this is likely to be the last time audiences will see Bennett live, the concerts were taped and aired as a CBS special on November 28, 2021. Sound was at the forefront of considerations for this event, with GRAMMY award-winning recording engineer Jody Elff and John Harris of Harris-Elff Audio Resources (HEAR) selecting a variety of DPA microphones for the orchestral recording. “We were live on stage at Radio City Music Hall, one of the greatest venues in the world, with a full orchestral ensemble. We also had Tony's jazz ensemble and Lady Gaga's rhythm section on stage, in addition to the full string and brass sections. a harp and a few woodwinds We had DPA mics throughout the orchestra - our older 4021 Compact Cardioid Condensers [now known as 4011ES] on the piano, 4061 omnidirectional miniatures on the violins and violas, and 4099 instrument mics on all the brass, woodwinds and strings, including harp, as well as on solo saxophone and trumpet. As expected, all of the DPA mics sounded great.” During the two performances, Elff fed his mixes to Harris, who mixed the bands and vocals. "It wasn't a live broadcast, but we did a stereo reference mix that was later used during video editing. I had the orchestra under my fingers with 40 or 50 input channels, with DPA arrangement throughout. It was fantastic. I experienced DPA's level of fidelity and unmatched clarity and isolation in the very large hall that had a massive PA and 6,000 enthusiastic fans. The DPA mics allowed me to create a beautiful, clean, orchestral mix , which worked really well for the I also sent mixed stems of the orchestra mics back on stage to use in the performers' in-ear monitors. Those performances were remarkably touching, and the DPA mics helped showcase Tony's legacy as one of the greats." [DPA responds to changing media landscape with new next-generation broadcast mics] The multitrack recordings (147 channels total) were then turned over to engineer Dae Bennett (Tony Bennett's son) for final editing and mixing for the broadcast. It was important for the team to deliver the best possible quality for Dae to work with, and DPA mics were central to that process. According to Elff, the production also benefited from the compact form factor of the DPA microphones. "When there are a lot of people on stage, as we had at these performances, using the 4061 and 4099 gives the audience the opportunity to experience the music without a forest of mic stands obscuring the musicians' view, be it in the Hall or above It's one of my favorite parts of working with DPA mics.” Audio engineer Jody Elff commended the DPA 4061 and 4099 mics (shown here) for being “so discreet”. [They] allow the audience to experience the music without a forest of microphone stands obscuring the musicians' view, either in the hall or on camera. They don't think about the mics, they just watch the musicians play, listen to the music and think about how good it sounds. They don't think about the mics, they just watch the musicians play, listen to the music and think about how good it sounds. It's one of my favorite parts of working with DPA mics.” As a longtime DPA fan, dating back to the mid-1990s, Elff finds the brand's mics to be among the best in the business. "For years, DPA has manufactured and continues to produce some of the best sounding microphones on the market," he adds. “The microphones will certainly withstand the rigors of live use in recording and studio applications. The 4006s are an orchestral recording staple and they sound great too. The first time I heard a 4006 was when I queued up on the mic while you checked the lines. I didn't hear the mic, just the room, and it immediately changed my opinion of other brands. When you queue up a mic, you'll hear how much character the device itself adds to your signal, and with DPA it's like there's nothing but your source material. It was a remarkable experience and I have used Lincoln Center Festival DPA microphones whenever possible ever since. He has field-recorded folk music in Morocco and Ethiopia, recorded three albums with Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, and provided the sound design for hundreds of performances around the world. He is also a co-partner of HEAR, which provides on-site and remote recording and broadcast music mixing services.

Motivational speaker finds 2 best friends

NUTLEY, NJ -- Joe Dwyer, 61, is a long-time resident of Nutley and has had a varied career. Dwyer, a graduate of Nutley High School Class of 1978, was a chemical engineer at Schering-Plough, worked in advertising... (Author: Gardener)

2A graduate of Nutley High School Class of 1978, Dwyer was a chemical engineer at Schering-Plough, worked in advertising and industrial relations for Bell Atlantic, and then served as vice chancellor of administration for the Archdiocese of Newark. After the archdiocese job, he became a motivational speaker. Dwyer is on a mission, but it wasn't until he became a volunteer at the Bloomfield Animal Shelter that he was set on his path by a mutilated pit bull he christened Shelby. For a long time, Dwyer suffered from anxiety and depression. "I've certainly had a rough time," he said in a phone interview on Wednesday, January 12. The pit bull was brought to the shelter in February 2008. Dwyer said she was most likely a decoy dog ​​for fighting pit bulls. A bait dog, he said, is a sweet and gentle dog that other dogs are allowed to attack to build their confidence. "A terrible thing," Dwyer said. Dwyer said a traumatized dog is not very different from a traumatized person. "At first, working at the shelter was about being a volunteer," he said. It's not what you say or do; it is your presence It's no different than a person in mourning. Your presence means everything. I truly believe that Shelby was sent to me from God. Our lives were preordained before she was born.” Dwyer adopted Shelby in August 2008 and trained her to be a certified therapy dog. "A therapy dog ​​needs a calm temperament," he said. Dwyer began giving school lectures and brought Shelby with him. He spoke to the kids about not judging people like Shelby sometimes did because she's a pit bull. "Shelby gave me a great platform because she was a pit bull and they are profiled," he said. She also went to a funeral home as a grief dog.” As much as he felt for Shelby, he still struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts. The stray was supposed to be euthanized in a gas chamber along with 17 other dogs, but miraculously survived. The dog's survival was new. Eleventh Hour Rescue, a no-kill rescue from Morris County, had Pilots N Paws' dog flown to New Jersey. Dwyer contacted rescue and arranged for the dog's adoption. "Our souls are connected," he said. Dwyer named the beagle Daniel for escaping their own lions' den. Dwyer began motivationally with both dogs accompanying him. He said that because of Daniel's life story, "an incredible whirlwind of travel" began. Since Shelby weighed more than 30 pounds, she was not taken when Dwyer traveled by plane with Daniel as he would not put her in a cargo hold. Dwyer said his conversations with Daniel were partly about the prohibition of gas chambers, but the dog's mission was much larger. Because Daniel wasn't a therapy dog, unlike Shelby, Daniel couldn't offer therapy. With Daniel, Dwyer gave age-appropriate talks on animal adoption, overcoming loss, adversity, and finding hope again. Dwyer was careful not to overwhelm the dogs with too many public appearances. "If I didn't think it was in their best interest, I would turn down an event," he said. Shelby passed away in February 2019 and Daniel passed away in June 2021. But Dwyer believes Shelby and Daniel's message should still reach people and has self-published two books: God, Shelby and Me and A Conversation With Daniel “. It will be available at the Nutley Public Library on Saturday, January 29th. Proceeds from book purchases go to animal rescue.
