The popular Dalmatian is known for its endurance and elegance. Its reputation as a firehouse mascot is rooted in its use as a carriage dog whose role was to run along, beside, and sometimes under horse-drawn carriages (thus the alternate name Spotted Coach Dog). Dalmatians were useful for clearing the way in front of the carriage, both by controlling the horses and by their eye-catching attractiveness. This use likely transferred to horse-drawn fire engines. Their popularity increased in the early 1960ﾒs with the release of the Disney animated classic ﾓ101 Dalmatiansﾔ, yet the breed may date back over 4000 years to Ancient Greece, where it is seen depicted in art. Peterﾒs secret inscriptions include ﾓBestﾔ, in homage to George Best, the first superstar footballer in the UK, who died while Peter was carving this piece. Best is noted for saying that he spent his money on women, cars and booze, and the rest he just squandered. ﾓFuturamaﾔ refers to a cartoon series by The Simpsonsﾒ creators ﾖ both favorites of Peters. The dice are present because Peter and his son Sam are avid ﾓRiskﾔ players, and dice have spots like Dalmatians.
