Although hurricane Katrina was a miserable event for everyone in the southern U.S., this heroic dog gave the hurricane victims something to smile about in their days of misery.
In this case, Katrina – an ironically named black Labrador – saved a drowning man before rising flood waters claimed his life. Despite her heroism in the fateful event, she was later rescued herself by rescue teams.
Sometime after the dust has settled, Katrina was honored at that year’s Genesis Award with a standing ovation. Good girl!
