The Kiss
« on: April 13, 2007, 01:21:36 PM »
The photograph attached shows a red Doberman licking an exhausted fireman.   
 
He had just saved her from a fire in her house, rescuing her by carrying her out
of the house into her front  yard, while he continued to fight the fire.
           
She is pregnant. The firefighter was afraid of her at first, because he had never
been around a Doberman before.

When he finally got done putting the fire out, he sat down to catch his
breath and rest.  A photographer from the Charlotte, North Carolina
newspaper, "The Observer," noticed this red Doberman in the  distance
looking at the fireman.   He saw her walking straight toward the fireman
and wondered what she was going to do. As he raised his camera, she
came up to the tired man who had saved her life and the lives of her babies,
and kissed him, just as the photographer snapped this photograph.
 
And people say animals are dumb - yeah right.
and keep moving!

This is somewhat of an Urban legend and this link explains what really happened via the Firefighther's own account:

Nonetheless, it's still a great photo.  :)

Well maybe she was just thanking him for all his hard work anyway.

  How  funny would it have been if the dog would have bitten him right on the face just as the pic was snapped? Then the picture would be emailed all over with the caption

          "Ungratefull Bitch!"   hahaha
