Blind Frisky - A Hurricane Katrina Hero

Back in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast, George Mitchell nearly lost his life to the storm. The octogenarian was stuck in his house, treading water for hours. Exhausted, George felt himself "about to let go" when he was encouraged and revived by his ever-loyal companion Frisky, a blind 19 year old schnauzer poodle mix. To see a CBS interview with George (and his canine hero!), click here.
