    Last Surviving 9/11 Rescue Dog Visits Ground Zero

    "This week, Bretagne, a golden retriever and the last surviving rescue dog to search Ground Zero in the wake of 9/11, returned to the site with her owner Denise Corliss for the first time since the terrorist attacks.
    Corliss and her dog first arrived from Texas in 2001, about a week after 9/11. It was the first job for the duo.

    Corliss started her rescue career by volunteering to act as a victim during a training drill, lying in rubble and waiting for hours before a dog found her. She told the Daily News, “Even though it was a test situation, I remember feeling so relieved. And I thought, ‘What must this really feel like to someone in a real situation?’ I wanted to give that feeling to other people.”"

    That was a really nice story and she looked like a happy and gentle old dog.

    I got a kick out of her playing around in the water.

    Me too! I don't understand people who don't like dogs. The town I live in must be the most dog-freindly town in America. They're everywhere ... even in the grocery stores. No one even bats an eye. Oh, doggie in the produce section! Good Doggie! It's Awesome!:D:dog::dogpee:

    Shortly after 9/11 I was ordering some treats for my dog and saw a nice thing online. The pet supply company (Drs. Foster and Smith) was offering people a chance to donate supplies for the search and rescue dogs at ground zero. Hadn't thought much about it before then but they said there was a need for single-serving pouches of food and treats, protective booties for their feet, and various other items that would protect and nourish them. They were offering a generous discount, plus they took care of shipping the stuff to the site. Thought it was a great idea, sent along some treats for the pups and have continued to order from that company.
