09/12/12 98 W, 1 I - + 6 - 3 Durham Highway's New Dalmatian

Photographer Lee Wilson spent some time this week with the newest member of Durham Highway Fire Department. See his photos. Maybe you'll be able to meet him as well, this Saturday, at Leesville Road High School, for Durham Highway's annual Public Safety Day. Time is 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Read more on the department's Puppy Page, which includes some historical information about dalmatians in firehouses. Short version that I've always heard: dogs were common companions to horses, back in the day. And this breed proved the most companionable. Woof.

How about “Hugh” or “Hal” after Chief Hugh Halligan….
