This photograph shows a red Doberman kissing 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, when the photographer snapped this
photograph.

Great story and this picture mistakenly appears in many 911 tribute sites. Here's one such site: http://www.ctlegalguide.com/SlideShow/caninetribute.htm

The real story is just as good:

...... and just to remind that poor firefighter that he's in mortal danger from that 'dangerous breed' he should be very, very careful!
Maybe she's just tasting him to see if he's 'done yet' ??

Awesome! I love stories like that

Wow, that dobie looks like my old one. The cropped ears fallen down and everything. A lot dobies around here now just don't have that big head-- they all have tube heads. I miss a real one, from a good breeder. With a normal head like this one.

Dobies are the sweetest, most attentive doggies. It's who their attentive to that is the problem..
