HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Let's take a look at some of the Good Things in the news...

For the first time in Japan's history, a Chihuahua has been selected as a police dog. Momo, a 7 pound, long-haired Chihuahua was among 70 golden retrievers, beagles and German shepherds competing for 32 slots as contract police dogs. Most of them will be used for search and rescue or detection dogs. Officials say Momo is the perfect size to help rescuers search for survivors after a disaster.

The day after Wrigley Field held a rare college football game, the field was opened to fans for their own game of touch football. It was a fundraiser for Chicago area charities. Tickets were sold for $50.00 allowing fans to play football at Wrigley for about an hour. Some fans took the opportunity to kick some field goals in what would normally be right field.

Here at home, bargain hunters packed a Waipahu warehouse this past weekend for a jump start on their holiday shopping. Island Heritage offered discounts of up to 80% off on more than $500,000 worth of merchandise. Shoppers not only took home some great deals, they also helped a good cause. Part of the proceeds will be donated to Special Olympics Hawaii.
