02:13 pm: Replacing Dalmatians
I came down this morning and Juss asked me what a plantation was.

I came down this morning, and Juss asked me what a plantation was. I explained, and he asked what a Dalmatian was.

 

Mommy: “Did you watch 101 Dalmatians this weekend with Uncle Bill while Mommy was away?”

 

Juss: “Yes. And what about fire dogs?”

 

Mommy: “They were Dalmatian’s, too.”

 

Juss: “Were?

 

Mommy: “They don’t have them any more.”

 

Juss: “Why not?

Mommy: “Well…I guess they don’t need them anymore.”

 

Juss: “What did they do?”

 

Mommy, a bit puzzled, recalls something about dogs smelling smoke. “Um…help them find fires and other stuff like that.”

 

Juss, losing interest and turning away, “Nowadays, they have GPS’s.”

There is cool information on the jobs of Dalmatians here, but I thought you better know there is a stuffed (beloved) horse head there, too.

When my dad was in the USAF, his first job was as a fire fighter. They had a Dalmatian by the name of Shadrach that lived in the firehouse.

That to say that some of places still have 'em. But more in a mascot sort of fashion, I'd think.
