October 1 is National Fire Pup Day, a day meant to honor the four-legged members of our nation's fire departments, and one Stateline area canine firemen just received a prestigious award for the second year in a row.

Congratulations to Glory, the Beloit Fire Department's 3-year-old yellow lab arson dog , who recently received the title of "National Arson Dog of the Year" from the American Humane Society.


If you would like to honor some local firemen, or at least have your walls covered with them to benefit Pink Heals of Winnebago County, you better pick up your copy of the 2016 Rockford Firefighters Calendar in available in stores all over the Stateline now! (Be sure to check out the month of December when you do, it was chosen especially for dog lovers.)
