Oct. 1st National Fire Pup Day

Oct. 1st National Fire Pup Day

Today we celebrate the Fire Pups that are not only our best friends, but in many cases our heroes. In the 1700’s the Dalmatian was used by the wealthy to protect their carriage while traveling. The dogs would run along side the carriage, protecting the contents when it was stopped. In the 1800’s the Dalmatian was used by fire departments as it was found they calmed the horses used to transport the fire equipment. Well we don’t use horses for fire engines anymore but the Dalmatian have stayed is use as a mascot for the fire department, (Along with other breeds) and they still help with search and rescue.

How to celebrate – See how many fire stations in your community still keep a dog. Read about the hero dogs that have saved man. Love your pup.
