Ok, a little bit of fun the other day...
I was driving my two dogs home in the extended cab of my truck when one of them happened to step on/hit the fire extinguisher. PsssSSTT! Truck fills with a cloud of powder so thick I can't see out any windows. Luckily even though I was driving 40mph down a busy road, I didn't hit anything/anyone. Must have looked like the "Cheech and Chong mobile" when I rolled down the windows.
Pulled over into a parking lot. Both dogs coated. Every crevice of the truck packed thick with the stuff. My hair now has a nice frosted look.

Who taught him to pull the pin?"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

This sounds like a war story someone told me about getting called to unlock a door and release a dog from a car.
As he was working on the problem,he commented that"If that was Lassie,she'd be able to unlock the door for you."
The car's irate owner returned,"Look,Lassie wouldn't have hit the door lock button in the first place."
Now that your dog is trained in usage of fire extinguishers,maybe you should work on teaching him/her the where and when to use one?

On a different note, I would sell that truck as soon as I had it cleaned up. Many of those dry chems are corrosive. You are going to start having elctronic problems out the wazu.PROUD, HONORED AND HUMBLED RECIPIENT OF THE PURPLE HYDRANT AWARD - 10/2007.

Back in September 2005, some of you might remember the transmission/engine fire experience I had. After all was said and done, I had my onboard fire extinguisher, plus the two for the house serviced. For one reason or another, the Co that did the work did not replace the pin or security tag for it. I've tried a couple of different things to prevent the trigger from getting activated unintentionally. Fortunately the few times that the unit was activated has not resulted in a full discharge, just a puff here and there. Now the extinguisher is in a storage bin, in the upright position.
So ya promoted the dog to Chief eh?
