02 Jun Smoky Joe
Hey did I tell you about the offer I got from a firey? Turned up at the staging area of the fire. I had my wildlife rescue vest on. Big burly firefighter strolled up and said hi I am Joe and I have got something for you. Thought well hello my luck has changed. He put his hand down into his overalls and pulled out a critter. It was sound asleep. He commenced to tell me the story.
He was fighting the fire when a little bundle of fur came barrelling out of the smoke and straight up his leg and climbed into his overalls. When it was break time he removed the critter from his overalls and put some of his water in the cap of the water bottle and gave the critter a drink. Put the critter back in his overalls and went back to work trying to get the fire under control. All day the critter stayed in his overalls and whenever Joe had a drink he offered the critter a drink.
When he had finished his shift he found me and this how we got Smoky Joe – the sugar glider!
