Walker: The stranger I will never forget
Barry and Tilly Web
Barry Amick smiles as he holds Tilly, a 7-month-old black lab he rescued from underneath a crumbling El Camino whose axles were sinking in mud as heavy rain fell across the Midlands Oct. 3. People in Kershaw County donated money to rescue Tilly from a shelter when she was 10 weeks old. She ended up under the car Oct. 3 after breaking free from her new family in a Midland veterinarians parking lot. - photo by Andrea Walker
