Everyone knows by now that I'm a dog lover. Just ask Elmer, Henley and Wilma! That's why I was so interested when I saw a discussion on Facebook Tuesday afternoon about whether or not Beacon should be allowed to ride in the Fire Truck in the Bar Harbor's 4th of July Parade.

Here Beacon looks all excited that he might be able to ride in the parade

But here the Chief has just explained that Beacon will NOT be riding in the parade

And here, Beacon is showing a little sass, and letting the Chief know what he thinks about his decision!

Now I know that the Chief isn't easily swayed by public opinion but you can vote in our poll and help him decide if Beacon could ride in the parade! Note the truck does have airconditioning!
