And here's my baby boy, Jax - a black lab/boxer mix who was left to die near the Santa Ana River. My wife and I adopted him from the Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley weeks after Caltrans workers found him wrapped in a blanket.
He's 5, and he's a strapping 85 pounds! A far cry from the 16-pounds when we first brought him home (below)

Some of you may be asking, "Where's Evelyn in that photo?" I'm thinking the then 8-year-old was hanging with her parents.

MANHUNT APPEARS OVER
Yesterday was a WILD news day that had IE residents glued to their TVs, cellphones, laptops, Ipads, you name it, as one of the biggest manhunts in recent memory – the hunt for former LAPD cop and multiple murder suspect Christopher Dorner - appears to have come to a violent and fiery end.
And it came following a tumultuous day in the mountains that involved a car jacking, a shootout that killed a SB County Sheriff’s deputy and wounded another, and eventually led to an apparent cabin hideout going up in flames, and charred human remains being pulled from the ashes early this morning.
The TIMELINE to the END
One of the biggest manhunts in recent memory came to an end after 6 days – and in a violent, fiery manner caught on camera. Going over all the various news sources, here’s a timeline of how things went down.
12:20pm – Two cleaning ladies arrive at a Big Bear cabin, and surprise Dorner, who’s apparently been hiding out in that cabin since last Thursday, when his torched truck was found nearby.
(CBS reports Dorner may have surprised the women when he broke into the home days ago, and kept them as hostages)
AND in the cabin just 30 – 40 yards from where law enforcement officials have been holding daily press conferences on the status of the manhunt!
Dorner reportedly ties up the women and drives off in their purple Nissan. One of the women breaks free and calls police to report their car was stolen by a guy who looks like the former cop everyone’s looking for.
12:45 – law enforcement officers from the US Fish and Game Department spot Dorner driving downhill on Highway 38 near Angelus Oaks in a purple Nissan. They quickly turn around and go after Dorner, who turns onto a small road and crashes the stolen car. He takes off on foot.
1:00 – 1:10 - Dorner carjacks a park ranger for his truck.

At this point, word has spread that Dorner has been spotted in the mountains, and shots have been fired. The internet goes bonkers.
1:30 – As deputies, police and a CBS2 reporter approach a nearby cabin, a massive firefight breaks up. Two San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputies are hit, and airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where one of the deputies passes away. The other undergoes surgery, and is expected to survive.
A standoff ensues. Law enforcement has the cabin surrounded.
2:30-ish – Law enforcement asks news media to stop tweeting about the standoff. News media ignore the request.
4pm – Flames are seen coming from the cabin, meaning the END is NEAR. Shots can be heard, possibly from exploding ammunition.
5:12 – Some moron named Jonathan posts on Facebook that Dorner got away by setting a fire as a diversion.
6pm - funeral-type procession of law enforcement officers leave Loma Linda University Medical Center folowing the confirmation that one of the sheriff's deputies shot by Dorner has died.
Cabin now completely engulfed in flames.
After 11pm – Cabin reduced to ashes and rubble. Law enforcement officials report a charred body is inside what’s left of the cabin. Body removed a short time later.
Official word is, it may take weeks to positively identify body as that of Chistopher Dorner.
But for all intents and purposes, the six-day manhunt is over.
Wednesday morning, 6:45am - An official tells the Associated Press a wallet containing the drover's lisence of Christopher Dorner was found in the rubble.
8am - funeral procession for Riverside Police Officer Michael Crain, killed last Thursday, starts to head out from Garden of Prayer Mortuary in Riverside, for Grove Community Church in Orangecrest, where Crain will be memorialized at 10:30am.
