Once, when I was maybe 11 or 12, my family vacationed in the Black Hills of So Dakota. My sister & I decided to take a walk, so we crossed the highway and started up the hillside. My sis had to go back to camp for something so I sat on a rock & waited. While all was silent, a red fox showed up, stared at me for a bit & then came to me & sniffed my foot. After sniffing a while, it licked my shoe and sat there with me until it heard my sister coming back.
