Where's The Fire, Rover?

Posted By on Sun, Sep 10, 2006 at 4:00 AM

Last week, police department officials were pretty embarrassed when they discovered the fire hydrant on the sidewalk outside their K-9 unit was fake — placed there years ago so the dogs would have a nice place to pee.

But a nonworking hydrant violated an ordinance requiring hydrants within certain distances of public buildings, so now the city is going to pay $20,000 to have a real hydrant installed. That's a real pisser.

But if you want a hydrant for your little pupster, a company appropriately named Yuckos offers faux hydrants for a mere $375. If you splurge for one and plunk it down in your front yard, just hope the fire department knows it’s not hooked up if your house catches on fire.
