About The Book
“Wherever you find a firehouse, you will likely find a firedog or a story of one.”
Working dogs are an often-overlooked segment of the canine population. The Firefighter’s Best Friend provides a rare look into a specific type of these dogsthose who have lived or currently live in the firehouses of Chicago. From the mutts in the 1870s who led the horse-drawn fire wagons, to citywide heroes, to the contemporary dogs that provide security, assistance, and companionship to today’s firefighters, the history and lore of Chicago firedogs is as rich as the city’s cultural heritage.
Whether at a fire, in the firehouse, or on the public relations circuit, these mascots play an important role in the day-to-day functioning of the Chicago Fire Department. They climb ladders, sound the alarms, fight fires, save children, break up fights, roll hose, exterminate vermin, protect property, and donate blood. And these public servants can play as hard as they work… playing basketball, visiting taverns and ballparks, socializing with neighborhood dogs, starring in the news, dining in style, and even hopping rides on the “L” and buses all by themselves. Trevor Orsigner and Drew Orsinger take readers on a tour of Chicago firehouses in their quest to document the lives and legends of every known Chicago firedog past and present.
As seen in Dog & Kennel and Animal Fair magazines, and in the popular Dogs with Jobs television series.
A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance “I Am Me Camp” for children who have been hospitalized for burn injuries, a cause near to the hearts of Chicago firefighters.
