Spotless Dalmatian Accuses Fire Department Of Discrimination
NEW YORK - A spotless dalmatian has raised claims of discrimination against the neighborhood fire department, sources confirm.
“This is egregious!” Pongo, a dalmatian, and highly decorated firefighter of 12 dog-years, exclaimed. “I was being transferred to a new squad, and when I arrived, they took one look at me, and got rid of me. What? Because I don’t have spots I can’t be up front in all the pictures? This is discrimination of the most abhorrent kind!”
The firehouse had a far different perspective to convey on the matter.\
“Listen, Pongo is a great dog. He’s so cute. Great with the kids. He’s perfect. But everyone associates dalmatians with having spots. We’re just trying to keep that traditional image, that’s all.” stated fire chief Billy Parson. “It’s nothing personal, we just don’t want a plain white dog representing us. It’s branding. You understand. We at least need a few black spots!”
Townsfolk were fiercely divided on the issue, several siding with the firehouse, while others stated the color of the dogs fur should not determine their opportunities.
“This is so dumb. This is breed-ism. I am disgusted at some of the people in this town!” exclaimed PetCo manager Beth Allen. “To think they would not only deprive the dog of an opportunity based on its fur, but also deprive the kids of getting to experience the joy that dog has to offer when they visit the firehouse; it’s horrible. Who cares?! Just let the dog be a firefighter!”
A neighborhood citizen who requested to remain anonymous added, “If this is how they react to just a spotless dalmatian, imagine if you tried to get them to hire a cat?!”
