After saying farewell to the adorable little dog that had aided them for more than a decade inside the station, a group of firemen were left with their hearts shattered. It is no secret that dogs are pretty docile and devoted creatures that readily learn different orders and succeed in numerous professions at the hands of humans such as firemen owing to their intelligence and scent.
The sweet animal resided in Iquique, Chile, and was a member of the city’s Fire Department. They had been serving their community for more than ten years, putting their integrity at stake for the sake of others.
The hairy man came to the Fire Department and quickly won over everyone; it was the firefighters’ decision to adopt him and make him a member of the squad.
The furry’s role was to defend the station while the men were in charge of receiving calls and dealing with danger, but that doesn’t imply Black’s task was insignificant… Quite the reverse!
The puppy served as an aid dog, assisting firemen in dealing with the stress of their jobs and the tough emergencies they had to cope with.
During those trying times, Negro was by the uniformed men’s side, wagging his tail, leaping, and ripping out one or more sweets. Everyone in the room was paying close attention to the dog.
Negro went through a difficult season that damaged his health, and at the age of 14, he decided to hang his wings and bid farewell to this world, as revealed by the gang in a social media post:
“Today in the morning, a difficult decision was made as a Company, at 6:20 p.m. due to the delicate health of his health, one of our ranks, our faithful four-legged Firefighter, left this land, thank you very much for all the years that you were with us, we will remember you forever Black,” they wrote.
This dog was not only a member of the Fire Department, but he also took part in formal events, company academies, and the Crispn Reyes youth brigade, where cadets were trained, and his departure displaced more soldiers than firemen from the city.
Because of their love and respect for the dog, the Department chose to honor him in a way that went beyond words. The loving Negro was shrouded along with a bunch of buddies.
The small dog that captivated so many hearts among the Iquique firemen was burned with an urn of his size and training.
“Negro was a member of this family, one of us.” He was respected, liked, and adored like any other fireman in our company, which was extremely painful, and we bid farewell to him in a very emotional ceremony since we were firing another of ours, who was also an essential part of this company,” stated Captain Jorge Tapia.
Due to the excellent work he performed throughout his ten years of care and company in the Department, the tiny dog was honored with the title of Honorary Firefighter.
“He was granted the position of Honorary Firefighter at an exceptional meeting of officers, which is the highest accolade that our firemen earn after they finish 14 years in our company.” He was with us for 14 years, having arrived as a puppy at our first barracks. “Negro got in the car and came with us when we transferred to our present barracks on Calle Playa El Guila,” the captain remembered.
