Today's crumb is contributed by a faithful reader in Indiana. This month in Dekalb, Georgia, a puppy became trapped near a pond and could not free himself. Animal Control was unable to reach the dog, so they called Dekalp Fire Company 24 to assist. The firefighters were able to rescue the dog.


But when the puppy was safe, Animal Control said he had no home and they would take him back to the shelter, unless anyone was interested in adopting him. Patrick Harrison, one of the firefighters who brought the pup to safety, decided to adopt the pet on the spot. According to the department's Facebook page, the dog is now Harrison's "new best friend" and is "always welcome at the station."
