In this picture, Siren couldn’t wait to go inside!
Lt. Paul Harmon gave Siren a tour of the police station and he really learned a lot! In the picture below, Lt. Harmon is giving Siren a treat before the tour. Siren loves treats!
Siren said that his favorite part of the tour was getting to sit in Chief Donaldson’s chair!
After the tour, Siren was so lucky! He got to look inside a police car and have his picture made with Lt. Harmon and Mayor Billy Helms. Siren was one very lucky dog and had a great day!

Learning to skateboard and staying safe
Remember when I shared with you that Siren was learning how to surf? Here’s a picture of Siren with his new skateboard. As soon as he gets a helmet, he is going to learn how to ride it! Our friend Jason fixed the bottom of Siren’s skateboard. Didn’t he do a pawsome job? You rock, Jason!
Our friend, Firefighter Susan, is making us a new fire safety house! This safety house will be sooooo cool and we will have so much fun learning fire safety together with the new house!
The house is what is called a miniature house. “Miniature” means that things inside the house will be very tiny!
This is the box that the Safety House was in. It will soon look like the picture on the box!
In this picture, Firefighter Susan is just getting started on the house. In the background is “#1 Sparkles’ Drive” and it is a very cool firehouse! Firefighter Dayna, Firefighter Susan and their friend Suzanne from Suzanne’s Dollhouses are going to raffle the firehouse off to help raise money for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. If you look really hard, you can see the inside of the firehouse. Isn’t it cool?

Phoebe the Cyber Dog
I love to have my dog friends share safety tips. This tip is from Phoebe and she is a “Cyber Dog.”
Phoebe goes to schools with her mom to talk to kids about stayer safer online. Phoebe sniffs out cyberbullies!

Here are Phoebe’s tips:
• Don’t trust everyone you meet online – even if they claim to be a “mutual friend”
• Only approve friends you really know – once they’re approved, they can see EVERYTHING you’re posting online, including photos and videos.
• Be careful what you post online – it can and will be used against you
• Never, ever give a friend your password! You may be friends today, but tomorrow is a different story.
• Never give out your real name, age, address, where you work or phone number online without permission
• Lurk on groups, message boards, web sites, blogs and chat rooms before posting messages
• When you do participate online, be careful — only type what you would say to someone’s face
• Block or ignore unwanted users in chat or IM. Take advantage of the “Block all users except those on my buddy list” or add unwanted screen names to an Ignore list in chat. You’re not being rude – your comfort level is more important than their feelings.
• Your first instinct may be to defend yourself if you are bothered online – DON’T – this is how most cyberbullying begins.
Being safe is what it is all about!
Thanks so much, Phoebe! These are great tips to help us stay safe!
My friend, Stacey Mae, sent me this picture with her in her helmet. Doesn’t she look cute? Stacey Mae and her friend, Duke Taylor, have helped me get more friends for my facebook page. Soon, Stacey Mae will be sharing a safety tip! I can’t wait!
I received a very nice email from my friend, “Rage.” Rage is a fire dog and helps out his fire department. Here’s what he said!
Rage riding on a fire truck in a parade.
My name is “Rage the fire dog”. I too help teach fire safety to kids and adults.
My dad is Firefighter Al and my mom is Nancy. Dad is a volunteer at Greenville Township Volunteer Fire Department in OHIO.
My mom and dad just started in late 2009 and they have a big 2011 planned. I too can “Stop, Drop, and Roll.” Mom and dad are working on a tunnel to show kids how to stay low and go in smoke. I also have 10 other mix bread of dogs they live with me.
Hope to hear from you…. Have a Super Safe Day !!!!!!!!!!!
Doesn’t Rage have a cool ride? Sweet! Siren said he wants a ride like this!
