    Last 9/11 Rescue Pup Laid to Rest. How sad.

    Can someone help me out here and post this article so you don't have to click on the link? I'm having a tough time doing it.

    It's a wonderful tribute to what is believed to be the last remaining 9/11 rescue pup.

    Thank you Bretagne, you brave girl

    I worked with Cody Bear and Tsunami (Sue), a Golden Retriever and a Shepherd, at WTC. What those dogs did, day after day was incredible. They knew they were in danger, you'll never convince me otherwise, but everything in their being drove them to do the job. K-9's with their pads burned off, cut and bleeding, hacking, choking and coughing, exhausted as much as we were.....they just worked and worked and worked.
    I have always been a dog lover but seeing first hand what these dogs did elevated them many times in my heart and mind.
    RIP Bretagne

    Interesting side note:
    Tsunami was the model for the War a Dog Memorial at the H. Lee Dennison Bldg in Hauppauge. Didn't know we had one of those, did ya?

      "Last 9/11 Rescue Dog Dies At 16. WATCH Her Get The Hero’s Salute She Deserves"

      Bretagne, the last known 9/11 rescue dog, was given a hero’s salute for the last time Monday.

      The 16-year-old golden retriever suffered kidney failure three days ago, the “Today” show reports, and members of the Cy-Fair (Texas) Volunteer Fire Department, with whom she served, honored her on her final trip to the vet’s office.

      “This was a very small way for us to pay tribute to a dog who truly has been a hero,” Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department Captain David Padovan told “Today.” “Just because she’s a K9 doesn’t make her any less part of our department than any other member.”

      “She was really anxious [Sunday] night and she just wanted to be with me,” added Denise Corliss. “So I laid down with her, right next to her. When she could feel me, she could settle down and go to sleep. I slept with her like that all night.”

      Bretagne was one of 300 rescue dogs who searched for survivors at Ground Zero in September 2001.

      She would have turned 17 this coming August.

      I didn't know that Tom. Thanks for sharing that and thank you for all you, Cody Bear and Tsunami did during that awful time.

        I watched the video clip of the ceremony they held at her arrival this morning on News12, very sad indeed. Her tail was still holding high right to the entrance door.

        R.I.P. Bretagne

            That pup had more loyalty to the USA than a few others that come to mind right now.

            What a sad story

                  Truly Man's best friend. Rest in peace Bretagne and all the 350+ SAR dogs that helped ( and endured incredible stress and anxiety) during that most terrible time.

                  Blasted dust in my eyes! wtf

                    Oh my goodness. Fox just aired video of precious Bretagne being walked into the vet's office with a full salute going on by local firefighters. I have to go reapply my mascara.

                    Rest in peace you brave little girl
