As many of you know who have been reading Dakota’s blog, we are huge fans of the amazing work that Dayna Hilton and her dogs have done through the past few years, educating children about Fire Safety.
FROM THE TIMES RECORD ONLINE EDITION: “Molly is the fifth in a line of five fire safety dogs that have collectively helped save the lives of seven children and two adults. Molly, honorary fire marshal for the Little Rock Fire Department, follows behind the late Sparkles and Spanner and works with companion fire safety dogs Tango and Siren.”
I first met Dayna when she was a speaker at my FIRST BlogPaws Conference in 2011!!!
(See all the GREAT people you get to meet when you go to a BlogPaws Conference?)
I didn’t realize when I offered to feature her again, that I had featured her for the #BtC4A Blog Hop last July! Well, the work she does is so important, and she has helped so many, that now it is time for US to help HER and her dog, Molly the Fire Safety Dog!
Dayna put together this adorable video that showcases much of the incredible work that Molly the Fire Safety Dog does!
