Sparky rides proud on the fire truck
Ringing the bell and pushing his luck
He gets under foot when trying to help
He often gets stepped on and lets out a yelp!
1. There were four variations of the last line of text in Sparky's poem:

2. In April 1997, Sparky started showing up with Dotty tush tags. Ty had not yet released an "introduction announcement" for Dotty, so this tag discrepancy indicated Ty was about to release a new Dalmation named Dotty. Dotty was officially introduced by Ty on May 11, 1997. Dotty had the same style number as Sparky but a different birth date.
