Disappeared – The Montreal Gazette Apr. 6, 1878
The large St. Bernard dog “Fan” belonging to Mr. McCrobie, Captain of the Salvage Corps, No. 2 Fire Station, has been missing since Wednesday evening last. She was well known in the vicinity of the Station, and even further away, as she was allowed perfect liberty to roam abroad. It is thought that some person has stolen her. The men at No. 2 feel concerned at the absence of their noble pet.
