I enjoyed this photo of a pet lover with his black labrador dog getting some summer relief at a fire hydrant. Maybe this was taken outside a firehouse? Dalmatians are traditional but this could be a fireman and mascot.
Anyway, the owner seems to sincerely care about his pet – a reminder that most pet owners are like this and only a few are animal cruelty types. The media must look long and hard to find those mistreated animal stories.
