The dog kingdom's Noah

Sam Bailey's life has gone to the dogs -- literally and figuratively. We met Sam at his new home, a FEMA trailer, in Pearlington, Mississippi, a town hit by the full force of Hurricane Katrina. The home he and his wife had lived in was destroyed by the storm and wreckage is still strewn throughout the property. Their new trailer is in their old yard, a yard they share with more than 50 dogs and cats.

He admits that some of his animals have "social" problems because of Katrina and are unlikely adoption candidates. Yet, he has a policy of not putting animals to sleep unless they are terminally ill. So Sam isn't quite sure what he's going to do with all the animals.

Editor Rozek’s Note: Oh my god. Enough! Put the stupid things to sleep. A trailer? Hello! It’s called natural selection…and as for the dogs and cats…
