Woman realizes that her service dog is “manipulating” her Chipotle Stock Alert: Get Ready for the Launch as CMG Reports Earnings Today

MARION – If you closed your eyes on Silvershell Beach in Marion on the afternoon of June 29, the sounds might have made you think you were in Manhattan.

That day, the children of Tri-Town made sure the horns on Marion Police and Fire Department vehicles worked properly at the annual “Touch a Truck” event hosted by Marion Recreation.

Children on the nearby beach threw out shovels and buckets to see what was causing the commotion. When they arrived in a field right by the beach, the sight of about 20 large vehicles quickly made many forget their beach day.

One of the biggest hits of the afternoon was the chance to use the microphone in a police car.

“Stop, you bad guy!” shouted a child when it was his turn to get into the car.

Another main attraction was Cowboy, a 10-month-old Labrador Retriever owned by Deputy Johnson of the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department.

According to Johnson, Cowboy is trained to detect electronics such as SD cards and other small devices.

On this sunny Saturday, Cowboy smelled hot dogs and candy from the nearby concession stand.

Another of Johnson’s dogs, Sunny, was the star of a demonstration where another MP posed a threat.

Johnson let go of Sunny’s leash and the German Shepherd rushed to save the situation, earning him loud applause.

Assistant recreation manager Adam Lambert said the event started about four years ago.

“It’s a great feeling to be part of the organization and to bring fun to people,” Lambert said.
