The Dog Heroes of 9-11

Did you know that over 200 dogs helped alongside the emergency personnel at Ground Zero, the Pentagon and the Land Fill where debris was taken?  These dogs worked tirelessly to search the wreckage, bringing closure to families who had lost loved ones and offering comfort to the workers at the sites. In commemoration of the anniversary of 9-11 this is a replay of a conversation I had with Nona Kilgore Bauer, author of Dog Heroes of September, 11th.  A Tribute to America’s Search and Rescue Dogs. Ms. Kilgore Bauer tells stories of the individual dogs and how they were able to do the remarkable and dangerous work they did. See illustrating photos at
