In a sudden and unexpected hail and thunderstorm Sunday afternoon, Dodier and 11 other family members and friends were struck by lightning while vacationing at a campground near Big Bear Lake.

As Mitt Romney's campaign seeks to humanize him in the eyes of prospective voters, one issue beyond his policy stances or his stump statements continues to follow him - his treatment of the family dog Seamus during a family vacation in 1983. Criticism over Romney's decision to place Seamus in a dog carrier and strap him to the top of the family's car during a 12-hour drive to Canada has gone so far as to lead to the creation of a “super PAC” to raise awareness of the incident.

The homeowner feared a prowler had been trying to break into his house in recent months after he found a cellphone in the yard and heard unexplained wails from his dog in the middle of the night, only to find nothing when he investigated.
