October 1st is National Fire Pup Day

Tomorrow there will be another cool pet holiday–National Fire Pup Day! Here’s what JustSimplyDogs.com had to say about this holiday.

For many years, the Dalmatian was a well-recognized team member of each fire house. They went on fire calls with the other members of the department–clearing the way for the then horse-drawn vehicles, protecting the equipment and the horses, and preventing by-standers from getting too close.

Dalmatians are no longer found in each fire station and their role has changed over the years. Rather than working at the fires, their role is now largely one involving public relations, but they still play a role in many fire stations.”

Human firefighters are honored on October 5th through the 7th, on Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend.

October is also National Animal Safety and Protection month. On National Fire Pup Day why not think about revising your fire safety plan to include your pets? You might also think about installing monitored fire protection, which is an excellent way to get your pets help faster in the in the event that you’re not home when a fire starts. Monitored smoke detectors call the fire department for you.

And if you’re the owner of a Dalmatian, give him or her some extra scritches or playtime tomorrow to celebrate the holiday!
