Framingham resident Dave Papazian, a Wellesley firefighter, is scheduled to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres television show tomorrow, Jan. 14, along with three other Wellesley firefighters.
Captain Jim Dennehy, lieutenant Paul Delaney, Papazian and firefighter Joan Cullinan were invited to California to appear on the Ellen show because of their rescue of Crosby, a dog who fell through the ice of Charles River last month.
Firefighters, tethered to a rope, waded through the water and ice and pulled the dog to shore, where they dried him off with blankets and a fire coat and returned him to his family.
Attached to this Framingham Patch report is a video from Wellesley Police about the dog rescue.
Papazian lives in Framingham with his wife and their child.
