A Fireman's Dog

A Sunday School helper was delivering a station wagon full of kids home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children began discussing the dog's duties.

"They use him to keep crowds back," said one youngster.

"No," said another, "he's just for good luck."

A third child brought the argument to a close. "They use the dogs," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrant."

  2. Precisely. And that is also why firemen where gloves... to open the fire hydrant after the dog has 'found' it. hahahaha!

  4. They also prefer to use male dalmations because they can help extinguish smaller fires.
