Cruel pranksters steal dog's wheels

Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

Truly a miserable morning for many as the cold, rainy conditions remain for yet another day.

Ben tells me temperatures will hold to the upper 30s to near 40 today, with some showers making it feel even more dreary. Tomorrow doesn't appear to get much better – with the forecast calling for overcast skies and wet conditions. Is there any end in sight? And will the sun peek out by the weekend? The answers to these and other questions can be found in Ben's live, local forecast at noon – so be sure to tune in. In the meantime, you can check out current conditions HERE.

Also today, with events of recent months, concerns have increased about the potential for violence in the workplace and in schools. With that in mind, a program in Texas is trying to help people prepare for what used to be unthinkable.

Plus, staying active is an important part of being a healthy kid. We'll show you how one state's public schools are trying something new to get students moving, and its working!

And we have the story of a very cruel joke. It involves a dog who lost the use of her legs because of a degenerative disorder. Her family got her a special wheelchair and then this weekend someone took off with it … leaving Sammy the dog stuck in her backyard. You can read the story HERE.

Remember, you can watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and we hope you're safe and dry on this wet, cold day.

  • Dog abandoned at local vet gets second chance

    Sunday, August 20 2017 8:16 PM EDT2017-08-21 00:16:58 GMT

    It's unfortunately more common than you would think: pet owners dropping their animals off at the vet and never picking them up. Most offices cannot take in these animals, so they just end up at the shelter.

    A few showers possible Monday for the eclipseA few showers possible Monday for the eclipse

    Overnight, we will have clouds clear and will become mostly clear. Temperatures will slowly fall to the mid 70s. It will feel very warm due to the humidity. Heat indices will be in the 80s, throughout the night. Monday, the day of the eclipse, there is just a 30% chance of rain, so we will most likely have a few clouds during the time of the eclipse. There could be a few showers around the peak of the eclipse, but more likely, at least some clouds.
