I was back on the road in the state of Mississippi on this day back in 2012, having crossed from Tennessee just south of Memphis. It was a period of the run where dogs regularly decided to follow me. It happened elsewhere too, but not as often as in Mississippi and Alabama.
It’s nice to make friends with dogs, but it can be nerve-wracking too when they don’t have much road sense. And they wouldn’t go home when I told them. Anyhow, no dog got hit by a car while with me, thankfully. You can see some of these dogs in the photos below, all from the few days around this date in 2012.
