Urban Fur: Dog Day Afternoon

When one thinks of our Bravest, invariably one thinks of dogs. I mean, what would  our bravest be without a canine presiding over the premises? Pretty damned lame if you ask me!

Thus I was pleased as punch when I walked by Engine Company 237 yesterday and spied the above pup performing his duty.

While not a Dalmatian (the breed most associated with the fire-fighting profession) you gotta admit “Mugsy” does have his own unique charm.

It was explained to me by a co-worker that Mugsy was relaxing after a much-enjoyed bath.

As the “face” of this operation I can assure you Mugsy takes his appearance quite seriously.

Especially when it comes to the ladies!

  2. The tradition of firehouse dogs dates back to the 1800’s, when fire departments used horses to pull fire engines. Having a dog in the firehouse often made the horses less skittish.

  4. I’d say Mugsy has this relaxation concept down! 🙂

Tell me what you're thinking...
