Fire crew helps puppy suffering from allergic reaction

A fire crew provided oxygen to a puppy during an allergic reaction it had over the weekend.

From a release:

Grass Valley Engine 2 was en route to training around 7:30 p.m. Saturday when they were flagged down by a family out walking their 9-month-old lab puppy. The lab was stung by a bee and began displaying signs of an allergic reaction and difficulty breathing. The Engine 2 crew, Capt. Clemens, Engineer Coward, and Firefighter Ellison administered oxygen through a canine oxygen mask. After a few minutes the puppy responded favorably and was able to stand and walk off with family.
