Dogs & Firefighters

Ever notice how dogs and firefighters are alike? They both lay around doing nothing, then all of a sudden jump up and run out with sirens blaring. If it is a false alarm, they come back and lay down again. In a second, they are alerted again, and head off outside running as fast as they can. It is usually the one with the most sensitive ears that hears the alarm, then he alerts the others, and everyone goes. They sniff around, trying to find the danger, then they take care of it or determine that it is nothing. Then it is back inside again. Both firefighters and dogs - ever vigilant.
