This is an event at the fire station where lots of people come to see everything that goes on.  Everybody works to make a demonstration or a contest that will be fun for the visitors, and there are always lots of kids, and even babies.  No pets are allowed.  There are fire trucks all around, a helicopter, small fires that are easy to put out, ladders with firefighters climbing, and this time there was even a dalmation dog walking around.  This is a white dog with black spots that has been known to be a fire truck dog, but I don’t know if the dog really does anything,

I wore my Search vest, and for part of the day, I was the dog who everybody got a chance to pet.  That is the most exhausting part, because it is very loud, and there are so many people.  And some of the kids were holding stuffed animals, which is a big temptation.  Angie told them, “Please put that behind your back or give it to your mom.  Sammie might think it is a toy for her.”  Well, yes, of course that is what I thought.

The best part of the day was when all of the dogs showed what they could do.  Sprinkles demonstrated a bark barrel, where a human was hiding, and after she smelled him and barked, he played tug with her.  Sasha climbed the ladder, walked across the high plank, and went through a tunnel.  And I got to run the bases, which means Angie showed me with her hand a pattern of hup tables to run.  I LOVE running these, and I was so fast, I could feel my tail sticking straight out.  When Angie said, “All done, Sammie,” I raced toward her, and she threw me a toy. 

Thanks to everybody who worked hard to make FireFest a success!
