Description:
This is for oddly decorated fire hydrants. You must provide a photo with your log for verification of the hydrant. The puppymonster wants to know (and has to go!).
Expanded Description:
The puppymonster got on to me and wanted a waymarking category...

Being a puppymonster, I look around for places to do some business. mtn-man walks me around and I like trees and bushes and things like that. The *favorite* of any puppy is the old fire plug though! They seem to be everywhere and all sorts of colors.

Sometimes I get confused though! Some don't look like what I normally see. They are quite unusual. They get painted and decorated. Sometimes they scare me and I bark at them!

Please find me some fire plugs! I need to go!

If you know of an unusual one, please let me know where it is. I may want to walk by it one day and give it my personal seal of approval!

This should be a decorated traditional fire hydrant. You must post a photo of the fire plug so other may see some of the creative ideas out there. Maybe some really BIG fire hydrants would be neat too. I think he dreams about those.

Instructions for Posting a Painted Hydrants Waymark:
This must be a traditional fire hydrant, though they can be large versions as well. It must be decorated in some way. You must upload a photo of the hydrant. You must provide a photo of the object you log so others can enjoy. Waymarks without photos will be declined. We want to see them!
