Wow, that is all I can say. I think when ti comes to remembering September 11th and all of the horror that happened that day, it is also important to remember all of the heroic acts. As people ran out of the buildings while they still had time, men and women ran into the buildings to help innocent people find their way out. So many lives were lost that day, but so many lives were saved from the courageous acts that occurred from firefighters, police officers, doctors, and even normal every day civilians that wanted to step in and help.
After these terrible acts happened, people from all over the country came to help with search and rescue. Bretagne was on her first search and rescue mission and came all the way from Texas to try and save as many lives as possible.
Many of the dogs since 9/11 have passed away due to age and even some illness due to working with all of the debris and smoke. Bretagne is the last known search and rescue dog to still be alive from that horrific act of terror. Homedog just turned 16 and had an awesome day!
Just so everyone can see, below is a picture posted of her now, and a picture from 9/11.

So even though it is absolutely okay to feel sadness on a day such as this, it is important to remember these heroic acts. The people and the pooches that put their lives on the line to save others.
Thank you every man, woman, and dog that put other lives ahead of their own. You will never be forgotten.
