Here's a nice story from the World Paint Championships, about a halter horse that was missing for three months after Hurricane Katrina but was finally reunited with his owner, just as vets were about to put him down because of his injuries. His owner was an emergency room nurse in New Orleans who did not leave her post when the storm hit. She never gave up looking for him; the vets ID'd the gelding by microchip. From today's Fort Worth Telegram.
