DETROIT - Mayor Dave Bing of Detroit has just issued a Mayoral Directive stating that effective September 20, at 12:15 a.m. every fire station that has a dalmatian as a firehouse mascot will have to turn their dog over to the Detroit Animal Shelter.
The Mayor said that since the city has filed for bankruptcy there is just no way that he can justify allowing fire stations to keep their dalmatians since they have quite a voracious appetite and it takes a lot of water to give them a bath.
The mayor did want to inform the fire station captains that the dalmatians will actually be replaced with Chihuahuas. He said that since Chihuahuas are one-tenth the size of dalmatians they will eat one-tenth as much food and require only one-tenth the amount of bathwater.
He also added that unlike the bigger dalmatians who have to have a big dog house, the Chihuahuas can sleep in a standard-sized shoe box.
