Sparky the Fire Dog at the Boston Bruins Game

Fit and he knows it

Sparky the Fire Dog turns 65 this year, but that doesn’t mean he’s packing his golf clubs and heading to Boca for a sunny retirement. In February, Sparky was on hand to help the Boston Bruins celebrate First Responder Night at the TD Boston Garden, and on March 18 his official birthday celebration kicks off with a social media “Thunderclap,” with more events scheduled throughout the year. Find more information on Sparky and his big birthday bash.
