Fearless Mascot
Release Date: January 12, 2005


"First Lieutenant" Pudgy is the Rye Brook Fire Department's mascot. He is a fourteen year old Pekinese and has been in the fire department since March 18, 2002.

Larry and Pudgy

His owner and Rye Brook Fireman Larry Fraher says, "He likes chopped meat and cold cuts but not dog food." Unfortunately, Pudgy is blind but, he is 10 pounds of completely fearless fire fighting canine at heart.


Pudgy was promoted to "Captain" on January 12, 2005. After a hard three days on shift he likes to lay down on his favorite chair and caught up on some needed rest. He dreams of blazes of long ago, fire hydrants and barking orders to his fellow fireman.
