fire victim's puppy
While the human devastation of Hurricane Katrina has been heart-wrenching, the animals of the Gulf Coast also suffered -- and, sometimes, helped.

Robert Fonteaine held his puppy, Gangster, as he watched New Orleans firefighters try to save his house, which caught fire on the city's east side Sept. 6. Fonteaine's house was a total loss.
