Spotty the Fire Dog

 
Read “Spotty the Fire Dog” and answer the questions that follow.
 
1. Spotty is my name, and putting out fires is my game. I’m a full-blooded, bad to the bone, scared of nothing, Dalmatian dog.
 
2. I have the best job a dog could ask for, and I help Lucky County Fire Department not only put out fires but help out in disaster areas too.
 
3. Sometimes, I even have to assist a cat out of a tree. Cats will tell you that they are smarter than dogs, but have you ever seen a dog stuck in a tree? Case closed.
 
4. I work with the best and the bravest firefighters. They are real-life heroes. Superman does not hold a candle to what they do. They risk their lives to save people from fires and disasters caused by hurricanes, floods, tornados, and more.
 
5. WHOOOOOOO! That is the sirens on the big red fire engine. It looks like we are off on another rescue mission.
 
6. Hop on and ride with me. My seat is on the back of the truck. The truck goes so fast that the wind almost blows the hair right off of my head.
 
7. We have to get there before anyone gets hurt. My keen nose can smell up to many miles, which can help the firefighters when they are searching for people or items lost in the rubble of a disaster.

9. I see smoke pouring out of the windows of Dotty’s house, and three white and black spotted puppies with Dotty standing on the side of the street. Let’s go check on them.
 
10. “Spotty! We did what you said,” cried the three spotted pups. Pickles jumped around nervously and said, “We woke up to our smoke alarm going off in the kitchen.
 
11. “Patch was baking her famous peanut butter, chocolate chip dog bones and fell asleep. The smoke alarm went off and woke up all of us.
 
12. “The kitchen was filled with smoke and fire.
 
13. “We used our fire escape map, and we checked the doorknobs to make sure they were safe. They were not hot, so we knew that there was not a fire behind the door.
 
14. “Toby’s bat dog pajama top caught on fire, and he stopped running, dropped to the ground, and rolled all around to put the fire out without getting burned.”
 
15. Dotty looked at Spotty and said, “My hero!”
 
16. There you go, friends! All in a day’s work. Oh No! I have to go. Scat, the cat, is stuck in the big oak tree on Fortieth again. I told you cats are not smarter than dogs.
