September 12th...the day after 9/11. The date that brings to light the many memories of so many lives lost, amazing stories of selfless acts and heroic efforts, a date in history that won't soon be forgotten.

Even though I am a member of the feline order I felt I should bring some well deserved recognition to another breed of hero. A very brave breed of hero that also came to the scene that day in history. A breed of selfless, hard working, dedicated heroes that surely deserve our thanks.

I'm referring to THE HERO DOGS of 9/11. The dogs who helped search for the victims of 9/11/2001. Over 300 of these canine heroes were on the scene working tirelessly day and night in their search and rescue efforts.

You can actually see these dogs on a website called 'A Place to Love Dogs' or log on to this address:

There are great photographs of the hero dogs taken by photographer Charlotte Dumas. You can read some of their stories, know their names. Those pictured in this particular blog are all retired now, having performed their duties without complaint and through the internet the rest of us can read about them.

If you click on the heading at the top of the website it will lead you to a couple of videos dedicated to these dogs, telling their stories. These dogs not only carried out their duties they also provided comfort to so many along the way. To all of them we say thank you!
