Barked: Sun Jul 9, '06 8:29am PST 
Mommie and I were watching CNN Headline News when a story came on there that touched our hearts and This man that has dedicated his life to help animals really needs our help as he is helping our fur faced friends and if you go to watch CNN (HLN) You can hear his story this Sunday morning July 9,06 . Mommie has e mailed CNN to get the full story to share with all but has not gotton the information she requested yet,for it is Sunday. So she did find this on the internet and wanted to share..........This man and his wife have made it there mission to help animals...Before and after the storm in Mississippi. They refused to leave the animals and got them up on second floor and stayed with them all during this time. They are living in a Fema trailor and there house is not liveable and they refuse to leave the furfaces.. They are remarkable folks to care so much where others fail us. As Sam said on CNN you would not leave your kid hanging in a tree. How true is that. It made mommie cry.
