I worked in lower NYC. Many friends worked the site for recovery. The dogs were so loved & respected. They did their job, but brought so much comfort to the workers & volunteers.
This video had me in tears. Hope you enjoy.
Our goofy 4 paws are such hams & clowns. Always bring a smile.
The video sent me into tears. Our animals really are our comfort companions. They heal us, bring us friendship and unconditional love. Love our dogs. Thanks you for sharing Pam. God bless you. 1407 days ago
Dogs are so special!! My dogs love to have their teeth brushed. I really think they wish I'd just squirt the toothpaste in their mouth and skip the brushing part but they tolerate my quirks. 1407 days ago
I remember reading an article not too long ago that the dogs at WTC got PTSD to a greater degree than any other rescue dogs because, for the most part, it turned out to be a search & recovery instead of search & rescue.
I've been carrying my skinny old chihuahua, Spartacus, inside my jacket for the last few days. He usually sticks his nose out, but last evening, he kept sliding further and further back inside my jacket. (and it was warmer yesterday than the last couple of days). I wear a belt that the leashes are attached to, so he won't fall out the bottom of my jacket. By the time we got home, he was at my back - when I tried to pull him out with the leash, his harness slipped off - then the sweaters both slipped off when I tried to pull him out with those. (I had him double sweatered) Silly old dog 1407 days ago
My favorite photo is the Doberman on the back of the man...the look on his face is so much like that of a kid! But the winner in my book today, hands down, is the video of search and reuse dog Bertagne! I am moved beyond words to the people and dogs who went in to search, rescue and recover at ground zero! Thanks again for the amazing job you do for us each day with your animal collections! Have a wonderful weekend! Love & Hugs, Mary 1408 days ago
Loved the video of the Search and Rescue dog, Bertagne. All the people in that video truly know what life is all about and the dog well she is just the most special of the special. 1408 days ago
