Chief Puddle (パドル隊長 Padoru Taichō) is a dalmatian firefighter. He debuted in UmJammer Lammy and is the Teacher of Stage 2: Fire Fire!!
Lammy had just woken up from her dream and only has 15 minutes left to get to her gig. She is inconveniently slowed down as all the roads are blocked on command of Chief Puddle, head of the Parappa Town Fire Department, due to a burning building housing a pizza joint. Although taking it easy, Puddle gets huffy the moment Lammy asks to be let through and hands her a hose, telling her to put out the fire first.
In the anime, he falls in love with a woman whose father disapproves of the relationship, but ultimately accepts it when the Chief, along with Parappa and friends, save her from a wildfire.

Personality & Habits
Chief Puddle, as well as his fire fighting colleagues, are not shown to take their work very seriously. Puddle is introduced narrating the scent of the pizza and makes jokes about the state of the building versus the pizza regarding doneness. However, he gets upset when other people take the situation as lightly as he does, as he does not want his function nor his safety strategy to be dismissed and disrespected. He is also seen to be incompetent.
Puddle is a Dalmatian dog, thus with white fur and black dots. The choice for this breed of dog is because Dalmatians have a history of fire-fighting apparatus escorts and firehouse mascots. The breed interacted well with horses and were thus trained to run in front of the carriages to help clear a path and quickly guide the horses and firefighters to the fires.
He has a pear shaped head, pink round lips, nose-bridge lacking eyes and a mono-brow. He has orange (red) hair under his cap. His cap has the initials 'FD', which stands for Fire Department. On the back of his jacket, it reads 'Chief Puddle'.
