A Dog's Life

The Further Adventures of Rocket - Los Angeles' Wonder Dog

It's always a special day when Bruno comes to visit.

Hey Bruno, how fast can you run?
Nice to see you too, pal.  Sorry you have to leave so soon, I'm on my way to the beach.  The Santa Ana winds are blowing and it's time for a fire patrol.
Everything looks good in this direction.  Smokey the Bear has his Fire Danger sign pointed to Red.  With the high winds blowing, you can't be too careful.
Woah! Do I smell smoke?  Better check it out, and fast.  I'm putting it into high gear!  Don't worry folks, help is on the way.
No problem, the smoke I smelled is from the chimney.  People there must have a fire going to warm things up. Going to be a cool evening.
This house is secure as well, is there anyplace else I should check?
All secure, sir.  Nothing to report except this beautiful sunset.
The folks in Malibu can sleep well tonight knowing that Rocket is on the job.
