Her life on the streets as a wild young girl are now over. She is a cute little white girl with big eyes, short hair and perfect teeth. Her name is Neena. A homeless girl from Brownsville, TX.
As fate would have it, I came in contact with her and got her off the streets. She has survived living on the streets without injury and with her virginity intact. While drugs were not an issue food, security and safe places to sleep were. While she was on the streets she still had her parents, but sadly has lost all her brothers and sisters.
So now she is going to be able to lay around all day and sleep, eat and play. Now she is going to see the country in ways she could never even dream about. She will see the whole country, the good, the bad, and the ugly, but she will do it with safety and without worry.
Neena was running around on a major 5 lane road and through a busy truck parking lot. She was following her mother the best she could, but she was going to get run over. Going as fast as she could her little legs were having trouble keeping up.
One of the things that truck drivers are bad about is not getting out of the truck and walking. We are always in a hurry. We always have a “hot load” or an appointment time that is to close.
My sons have been after me to get a dog for my truck. It will give me company while on the road. I was out 317 days in 2008. It will also make me get out and walk her, and me in the process.
Anyway, Neena laid down by my truck and was in the way. When I tried to move her, but all she wanted to do was be held. While her parents were wild and wouldn't come within 20 feet of you it surprised me that she was so calm and tame. It didn't take long before she figured out that I'm dogs best friend.
Where did she get her name? Like most wild dogs she had lots of fleas. You could see them openly walk on her they were so bad. So today she went to Petsmart for her first bath and flea dip. The helpful young lady was checking me in. After she did the name and address part she asked what her name was. I told her that she didn't have one yet that we just found each other last night. I then looked at her name tag and said “Neena, is a pretty name. I think I'll name her after you”.
