article imageOp-Ed: Photo Essay: The heroes who could not cry — 9/11 rescue dogs

By Greta McClain     Sep 11, 2012 in World
In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, canine search and rescue dogs were called in to help locate survivors as well as recover those that died.
The dogs helped to save lives and helped to bring closure to families who lost loved ones. If not for these animals, many of those that lost their lives may have never been recovered. Families of those lost could not have had closure and the ability to to give their loved one a proper funeral and burial.
These dogs also brought comfort to first responders, giving a gentle nuzzle, a tail wag and a kiss. There is something about wrapping your arms around a loyal, loving dog that, for a moment at least, makes the heartache melt away.
These dogs deserve to be remembered as heroes just as much as their human companions and first responders do.
