Out of the devastation of Saturday's mudslide in Oso, Wash. that's officially claimed 25 lives so far, here's a moment of light.

Julie and Cory Kuntz had gone to watch a baseball game on Saturday with their son Quinton, and the outing saved their lives. Their house was one of the 30-plus homes that were leveled by the mudslide. They lost everything, including, they presumed, their beloved Chocolate Lab, Buddy.

However, as searchers dug through the rubble, they found a dazed, but very much alive surprise on four legs.
