The One Ten Years Later

Let us never forget the lives lost on September 11, 2001
and remember to thank those who continue to
work to keep us safe and free.

Thank you, papa!!


And thank you to all of the search and rescue dogs.

Here's a link to an article I read in remembrance of the nearly 100 dogs who searched for survivors that fateful day. 12 of these heroes are still alive and featured in a series of portraits (not pictured here). Click here to read more.

    What a fabulous, heartfelt tribute to 9/11. The pictures are so bittersweet, and very emotional. They are true heroes, and we will never forget all those effected by 9/11. Thanks for posting!

  9. What a great tribute to the four legged service dogs. Roselle the guide dog should be remembered too for leading her owner down 1,463 steps in Tower One and to safety in a doorway as Tower Two came down.

  11. The dogs had a very hard job to do, and they did it well not expecting anything in return.

  13. Rescue dogs had their day, when hundreds of German shepherds, Rottweilers, coonhounds and other canines from police departments, the military, federal and state agencies and private organizations gathered with their handlers at Liberty State Park in Jersey City for a 9/11 tribute.great sharing for everybody !!
