For their last meeting before heading IFT, the three girls above joined the rest of their group mates for a tour of the Cedar Hammock Fire Station in Bradenton, Florida.

All of the dogs did very well on their tour through the station, going up and down different stairways, entering rooms and navigating hallways. Then we moved outside to hear the sirens and horns of the fire truck and to meet a suited-up fireman.
|Millie is showing a nice flat footed stance and no fear of the suited and masked fireman.|
|Leah, also, had no problem and took it all in stride.|
|Miss T, wasn't absolutely sure, but even she went up for a chin scratch and hello.|
|Dogs from left to right: Cooper, Ms. Martha, Bobb, Sophia, Leah, Belle, Millie, Luke, and Miss. T.|
