    McMINNVILLE, Tenn. – Jolene Solomon is beginning the new year with her life, her mule named Lou and little else. The Southern Standard in McMinnville reported Solomon had just finished eating supper on New Year's Day when Lou's braying and acting up got her attention.

    Solomon, 63, who lived alone, stepped outside, she saw her house was on fire. She called 911 and as she waited for firefighters, her home and everything in it burned to the ground.

    She said her father bought Lou years ago to help her and her late sister, Blue, around the farm. It took Lou months to get over the loss of her sister.

    Solomon said she has 'lost it all', but credits Lou with saving her life.

    That is such a cute story! I've heard of a lot of different types of animals who have saved their owners from fires. They are godsends!

    Poor Lou ought to be rewarded with a good worming, his teeth floated and a good meal!

    I noticed how thin Lou was too. For saving her life she should give him a nice big meal (at least once a day).

    Sorry. Maybe he's just old and that's why he looks so thin.

    I also noticed he was very thin. I hope he gets some good meals, if she can afford it.
