    Came across this while on elephunt safari. Pretty moving so thought I'd post here...

    4. Chris P. Bacon the Pig
    Born without hind legs, Chris’ owners fashioned some out of a set of Kinex toys. Now the adorable piglet rolls around making appearances at children’s hospitals and inspires the kiddos to not let the bad things in life hold them back.

    9. Septimus the Tortoise
    While hibernating, his front legs were chewed away by rats and became infested with maggots. He was discovered by Darren Strand and his daughter who brought him to a vet where he received the amputation. Strand then fit him with wheels from a model airplane and now Septimus could win a race against any hare out there.

    Stories like this make me want to cut the heads off people who buy yachts for some reason.
