    Reported by:

    Mouse, so called because of her diminutive size, meets the gaze of her mare Grace trying to enter the kitchen at this moment. She became addicted to heroin at age 13 when she lived in San Francisco. Now, 40 years later, faith and the love for animals have given her the strength to overcome the addiction. She lives alone in a remote cabin in Montana with six dogs and a few horses. Hopefully Mouse's strength can be an inspiration to others with drug-related problems.
