#21 - National Fire Dog Monument.jpgSparky visited the National Fire Dog Monument in Washington, D.C. The monument was designed to honor arson dogs, also known as accelerant detection canines, who are trained to sniff out evidence that a fire was started intentionally. The statue, designed by a volunteer firefighter, moved to its permanent home in 2013.

Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he’d like to accomplish from now through October. As he checks them off his list, we’ll make sure to share them with you. Some of Sparky’s wishes are pretty lofty, while others are just fun or a bit silly. Check in weekly to see where he goes and what he’s up to!
