Determined dog swims through floodwaters to fetch toy
A pup made the best out of a bad situation when she was caught on camera playing fetch through floodwaters after a severe storm in Illinois.
Kristen Tahiri's backyard in Grayslake was left flooded Wednesday after heavy rains in her area.

"We got close to seven inches of rain and I've never had water like that in my yard, ever," Tahiri told InsideEdition.com. "There's not even a sewer back there or anything."
But Lily, her 1-year-old dog, didn't seem to mind the flooding at all.
In a video Tahiri posted to Facebook, Lily could be seen diving straight into the murky water and playing fetch with a toy.
"She actually jumped in earlier after a squirrel," Tahiri said. "At that point I was like, 'Oh well, you're in it. We'll give you a bath later.'"
She explained the flooding, which created a nearly two-foot-deep pool in her backyard, subsided after nearly 12 hours.
Tahiri said many of the things stored in the garage were destroyed, and the flooding left a pit of mud in her backyard — and one very wet dog.
