JOHNSON CO., Ar. -- An Arkansas girl gives up a trip to Disney World to save her dog.      
   
Patience Lemy, 8, says she found her dog, Brownie, lying on the road after getting hit by a car. Brownie had severe swelling to the brain. She says Brownie isn't the first dog to be ran over in the neighborhood where she lives.

So Lemy made an appointment with police to talk about speeding issues.  The department is now looking into changing the speed limit in that area.

Lemy she helped pay for Brownie's vet bill using money she saved for a Disney trip and her college fund. The sheriff's department was so touched she stood up for what she believed in, it donated money to help cover the rest of the vet bill.
