What does a Dalmatian do for the firemen? Everyone knows that firefighters have Dalmatian dogs as mascots … but are they decoration, or do they serve a purpose?
A carpool mom was delivering a station wagon full of kids to their homes one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog.
The children fell to discussing the dog’s duties.
‘They use him to keep crowds back,’ said one youngster.
‘No,’ said another, ‘he’s just for good luck.’
Then a third child brought the argument to a close.
‘They use the dog,’ she said firmly, ‘to find the fire hydrant.’
