Dog lullabies and horse prosthetics

Cute warning - look away now if this offends you.

Man singing puppies to sleep.

And the Shetland pony with an artificial leg - after she was savaged by a dog in the confusion following hurricane Katrina:

Story here, video from the veterinary institution that worked this little miracle here (YouTube). It sounds like this little pony has a big heart. They decided to operate because she wasn't quitting, clearly understood she was in trouble, alternated the side she slept on, cleverly protected the leg and cooperated extremely well with the people who were helping her.

The only downside is, the leg has a smiley face on the pad, to leave a happy smile wherever she goes.

[I should have said, thanks to Ann and Linda]
