I live in a small Mississippi river town where I am a local firefighter One evening as I was mowing my property I sensed something behind me and turned around to find a dog trotting down my drive way from the small two lane highway I live off of. !! Where did you come from, I asked her!! She rolled over on her back as I rubbed her belly a bit and then I went and got her a bowl of water and just as I was setting the bowl down my alarm goes off and its a call for a structure fire so I said "bye pup , I got to go"! and off I went to fight the fire !! I got home late and to my surprise there she was laying in the garage !!. . Now being on a highway like I am I didn't really want to have a dog for obvious reasons so the next morning, I went around a few of the farms near me and asked about her but found out nothing . So I went down to the store, got her some food and a collar, about two weeks passed and Smokie just hung around the property, She sleeps in the garage. Came home late one evening and turning in to my drive I caught the site of something near the shoulder and my heart just sunk !! It was Smokie laying down but had her head up. I gently tried to move her but she yelped and whimpered in obvious pain but then jumped up and limped back to the garage still hurting. She laid down on her bed and I laid beside her all night then first thing in the morn took her to the vet where they checked her out. Bruised and battered but other wise ok I got her shots, spayed and all fixed up and to this day she is always by my side and NEVER goes near the highway any more ! And that's the story about how Smokie adopted me !!
