Fire Department Headquarters

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim!  Remember on Friday and Saturday, I showed you some pix from my visit with my goat and sheep friends?  What a great adventure that was!  It didn't end there, though - and I thought I'd show you the rest of my cool adventure today.

Once my friends left to attend their class at KSU, I thought a little exploring was in order.  I suggested to Mom that we cross the street and go over here:

It's the headquarters for our city's Fire Department. I thought I'd stop by, see if the Dalmatian was in, and pay my respects.


I'm assuming they have one -- isn't it a requirement that Dalmatians run Fire Departments?  Unfortunately, he didn't seem to be in - must have been out on a call or something.

I did find a big stretch of honeysuckle vines that just called out for some exploring!

"Wow!  I never knew that!"

There were TONS of great messages in there! It was like a pup version of a library - I learned about all kinds of cool stuff snoofing through the vines!!!

When we got to the end of where the honeysuckle was growing, I saw something else that caught my eye; check it out!

"Wowzers!  What's that?!?"

I wanted to go check it out, but Mom wouldn't let me.  She said it's part of the Fire Department's training equipment.  I'd love to zip up all those stairs and call out a nice, loud "HA ROO!" from the top of the tower, but I guess I'll just have to make do with our cat walk... unless I can meet up with the Dalmatian and get an invite from him!  How cool would that be?

Have a great day, everyone!
Play bows,
Zim

  11. You got to go to a Dawg LIBRARY??? WOW!! You will be soooooo smart that you will be able to answer ALL of our imPAWtant questions and stuffs.

    I am sorry you didn't get to climb the cool steps.. HEY... maybe if you Ask nicely... you could go up a FEW and get some pictures and do one of George's Saturday Steps Guest Posts and tell all about Dalmations and Fire Depts. and the history and stuffs. I am sure you know since the Library Shrubs were so CLOSE and all.
    It would be GRRRRREAT. You guys would do a super job of that.

  14. Zim, that tower almost looks higher than the Top of the World! We love high places and think it would be so fun to explore up there :) We're sorry you missed the Dalmation Fire Chief; maybe the next time you have an adventure there. Purrs,
