    Jell-O can't stop slippery sales slide

    Jell-O has lost its jiggle and nobody knows how to fix it. The dessert was invented more than a century ago and helped popularize a delicacy reserved for the rich into a quick, affordable treat. Yet despite its enduring place in pop culture, sales have tumbled 19 percent in the past four years, with alternatives such as Greek yogurt surging in popularity.

CHILLIWACK, British Columbia -

A tiny chihuahua took on a ferocious pit bull to save the life of an 8-year-old girl.

His name is Honey, but in British Columbia, they're calling him "Hero."

The 4-year-old chihuahua sprung into action when a neighbor's pit bull broke into his yard and attacked his owners' granddaughter.

The pit bull took little Jenna Desrochers down by the knees and began mauling her face.

Honey got between the girl and the pit bull, distracting it long enough for the pit's owner to drag the dog away.

Honey's owner, Anne Marie Desrochers, says he saved her granddaughter's life.

"They say she's got a few hundred stitches up here. Her eye was split right open like the eyelid right across and then she's got another wound here on her head.''

Jenna is going to need hours of surgery to repair her wounds.

The pit bull's owners have agreed to put the dog down.
