    Default stuffed dog ??????

    a guy told me last week something about a stuffed dog in a New York firetruck.
    He said, it was used as a goodluck charme, but couldn't tell me more about it.
    So, if it's true, what is the story about it, or is he just pulling my leg???

    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    I mean, it used to be a real living dog that died and then got stuffed.

    Don't know anything about a stuffed dog, but we have a small stuffed tiger in the cab of our Engine. 26 and I found it shortly after we took delivery of the truck, while doing live fire training on an acquired structure. Its been sitting the cab since. He keeps me "safe"

    He sits on the driver's side, tucked in on the left edge of the dashboard. Most times his head is just peeking over the edge of the dashboard. I see his beady li'l eyes almost every time I open the cab door.

    Nope, nothing there besides equipment. Closest we could put in there would be a stuffed pink panther. Someone (who I'll leave nameless for now) grabbed one in a structure fire while looking for kids who were reported to be trapped........

    Default New York Fire Museum

    There's a famous stuffed, possibly freeze dried, fire dog on display behind glass at the New York Fire Museum. I can't remember the whole story on the little guy, but maybe someone else knows.
