For the Dog LOVERS.....

Furry firefighters from a dozen city firehouses want to become calendar pinups -- and Post readers get to pick the best three.
Twelve pooches who live and work alongside the Bravest are competing for the honor of appearing in the first-ever Silver Shield charity calendar due out this fall.
The pageant of doggies is as diverse as the city they serve. Yogi and Stewie are sleek Dalmatians, and Frank is a stocky bulldog who hogs the firehouse couch. Lucy is a gentle, golden-haired stray, while Milo and Yayo are a mischievous duo who eat off plates when nobody's looking.
The pooches do try to earn their keep. Nikita and Lightning know how to stop, drop and roll -- and demonstrate it for visiting schoolkids.
The three who get the most votes from Post readers online will appear in the calendar with fire and police dogs from upstate, New Jersey and Connecticut, said Joe Debono, head of the nonprofit MBA Corps, which is helping Silver Shield with the project.
"It's going to be a great calendar. We'll be meeting the real firehouse dogs of New York City, many of whom are strays and rescues that firefighters have generously adopted," Debono said.
The Silver Shield Foundation covers college tuition and other expenses for the children and families of tri-state-area public-safety officers killed in the line of duty. It's looking for corporate sponsors to help with the calendar so all the proceeds can be used for its charity.
Vote for your favorite FDNY dog here, and check out the results next Sunday.
