Modern Day Heroes

For a while in American history public servants like policeman and fireman were all but forgot about to all but their closest supporters. While devastating to our country, 9/11 brought to the minds of Americans the bravery and dedication of the police and fireman in our country. Suddenly little kids were dressing in little red helmets and yellow jackets with hoses to emulate their new heroes. In some cities in America firefighters are paid, but in others the fire companies are completely volunteer. In either case, these men and women put their lives on the line every day to save the rest of us.

Firedogs

Did you ever wonder about the furry friends of the firefighters? How did the Dalmatian become known as the firefighting dog? And do they really help firemen?

The Dalmatian breed itself has been around since at least 1360AD. We know this because they appear in Italian wall paintings from that time period. We also assume that they are from Dalmatia on the Adriatic coast because of their name. They typically weight between 25 and 55 pounds and are between 19 and 23 inches high. The Dalmatian is known to be strong and have great endurance. Their natural temperament seems to not only allow them to get along with horses, but to have a calming effect on the horses.

In the 1600’s, Dalmatians were considered society dogs and were trained to run alongside of the horses that drew carriages. By the 1700’s the Dalmatians were helping to protect those stagecoaches. The dogs would work in pairs, with one traveling on either side of the horses. If any other dogs ran up to the carriage, the Dalmatians would chase them away. Dalmatians also meant a peaceful night’s sleep to stagecoach drivers.

Before Dalmatians (or without one), drivers would sleep in the stalls with the horses (often on a hammock) to protect their horses from thievery. With a Dalmatian, however, they could go ahead and sleep on a bed in a hotel or house. Why? Because the Dalmatians would sleep in the barn and protect the horses from any would-be thieves.

It was around this time that Dalmatians came in to the realm of fire service. The horses that drew the fire equipment to a scene were often kept for hours and hours inside of the fire house waiting for fires. Dalmatians were kept to keep the horses company and to help calm them. On the way to fire calls, then, the dogs ran ahead of the horses clearing the way for them. During the fire call, the dogs stood guard near the equipment to make sure nothing was stolen while the firefighters were busy. Dalmatians are a loyal breed and therefore were perfect for this duty. While it was certainly never their duty to go in to a fire, there are countless stories over the years of how Dalmatians saved firemen or trapped victims.

Many fire companies still keep Dalmatians today. While they mainly serve as a mascot for the fire companies and a friend to the firemen, they are still useful, as well. The Dalmatians, still loyal, act as guard dogs to the fire trucks and equipment while being stored in the fire stations and while out on calls.
