Kensi leading Susie and Bucky around the housing part of the fire station. Serena looking on as Sue and Swirl walk down the hallway. Dave and Swirl heading down to the truck bay. First up are the boots. Will he do it? Yes, he will. Brave boy, Cogsworth! Smart Swirl. He’s not smelling the inside of the boots. Bucky is too mature to smell the boots. He likes hanging with Kevin. Walking around the engines and equipment. Swirl, Cogsworth, and Bucky Future Guide Dog Raisers, Kensi and Serena. One of our favorite firefighters, Bill suiting up for us. Firefighter Bill is suited up, kneeling. He has on his oxygen mask and the alarm is going off. It’s quite loud! He’s slowing inching closer to the dogs. Swirl is not quite sure… Susie is placing food in Bill’s hands, and Swirl is just fine with the noise. Good boy, Cogsworth! A very confident Cogsworth. Perfection! Good job, Bucky! Up next, the rain, a very loud saw, chainsaw, and a big fan. Rona and Bucky checking out the fan and saw noise. Firefighter Rick is manning the saw. Way to go, Bucky! Rona and Bucky waiting as Firefighter Bill starts the chainsaw. Dinah, Regan, and Cogsworth making the rounds outside in the rain. Good job! Outside in the rain with the lights and siren going. It was VERY loud! Auburn Foothills Guiding Eyes: Firefighter Rick, Sydney with Swirl, Sue, Dinah, Tiffany, Serena, Susie, Kensi, Regan with Cogsworth, Firefighter Bill, Rona, and Kevin with Bucky.
