4. 50-60 dogs test positive for canine influenza at Big Dog Ranch Rescue
Shelter spokesman Chase Scott said Big Dog Ranch Rescue took in a dog after it was surrendered by a Palm Beach County owner.

In her 20 minute statement, she described feeling forced to go on tour in 2018 and perform in Las Vegas. After announcing her hiatus from her Las Vegas residency, Spears told the court she was put on Lithium against her will.
