Fire house Poodle

"From Austria comes the tale of a Poodle who befriended the crew of a fire-station. He made himself useful in many ways, such as carrying water-buckets, detecting weak spots in fire-hoses, even ringing the alarm-bell. He learned to climb ladders once up to the third floor, and was an expert at detecting 'hot-spots' which had been missed by the firemen." Der Deutsche Pudel (Munich: The German Poodle Clubs, 1907), translated by PHP volunteer, 26 August 1997.
