We fed her and gave her water and made a bed for her with a feather comforter and I put a red dog coat with a southwest kind of pattern on her so she would stay warm in my truck.

When we let her out this morning she went to the end of our driveway, looked over her shoulder as if to say "thank you" and headed up the hill toward Mutiny Bay Road. She wouldn't come back even though we called her. She did not have a collar on. She looked to be older as her muzzle was white and the hair around her tail was thin.

I heard this morning that he had a dog with him that survived but nobody I've talked to knows if the dog ran away or if someone has it. I thought this dog maybe that one. Anyway if anyone sees a dog in a red coat running around this is where she was this morning. If she belongs to someone else and has gone home she can keep the coat if she wants it. I would like to know if she is okay and made it home safely.
