A History Making Day!

Ever have one of those days where you pinch yourself and say that you can't believe what is happening? I experienced one of those days last Friday, when our good friends, Frankie the Walk 'n Roll Dog and her human, Barbara Techel, Sparkles and myself, visiting via skype to share fire safety with the children of Clarksville Primary School.

What amazes me about Barbara and Frankie, is that our goals are so parallel. They have been a true blessing and we will be joining forces on occasion to help share each others messages. Doesn't that just give you goosebumps?

On Friday, I was so thankful that Principal Steve Ziegler, Kathy Howell, and all of the children and teachers at Clarksville Primary School once again allowed us the opportunity to visit their school. And, what made this day so very special, is that they got to hear first hand, Frankie's story.

It was truly a day that I will never forget! Thank you Barbara and Frankie for coming into our lives!

New Book Review by Barbara Techel, author of Frankie (the walk 'n roll dog) Book Series

Thank you to Barbara Techel for this wonderful review of the children's fire safety book, Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog.

"This book shines with love and devotion from author, Dayna Hilton and her special dog, Sparkles. Their passion is educating children about fire safety and keeping them and their families safe. With Sparkles as their guide, children will not forget the important lessons Sparkles demonstrates. Especially when Sparkles gets down on the ground and shows the children "how to get low and go." Children will have a lasting memory of Sparkles to carry with them in the event of a fire that will no doubt save their lives. This book is a must have for every child in your household and should be reviewed at least once a year. Thank you to Dayna and Sparkles for writing this book to help save the lives of children everywhere. Bravo!"
