Dog Heroes of September 11
I don't know how you can scroll through this gallery and not get emotional. I will never forget September 11, and will be forever grateful of the emergency responders - including search and rescue dogs and their handlers.
I authored a print story, 10 years after 9-11, what do the search and rescue dog handler recall? And you can listen here to many of those handlers tell their stories on my WGN Radio Petcast.
This is Riley, who some just thought could more safely and quickly exit from the top of 'the pile' using a Stoke's basket. U.S. Navy Photo journalist, 1st class Preston Keres happened to be there and caught the moment. Today, this photograph is among the most recognizable from Ground Zero in the days following September 11.
