DogDaz Zoo: Dog Heros of 9/11

DogDaz salutes those that lost their lives, their loved ones, and their sense of security in the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01 and all terrorist attacks ever.  May the world find its way to peace.  Soon.

9/11 ‘hero dog’ saved woman trapped in rubble for 27 hours

Sep. 10, 2013 at 8:19 PM ET

Animal Planet
More than 300 specially trained search-and-rescue dogs were deployed at Ground Zero in the days following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
———————————————————–

On Sept. 11, 2001, Genelle Guzman-McMillan was working in her office in the World Trade Center when she heard a terrible noise outside. As she raced down the stairs, she felt the building collapse around her.

Twenty-seven hours later, she would be the final living person rescued from the rubble at Ground Zero. She was not found by a human equipped with special gear. Instead, her savior was a dog.

“It’s so awesome that the dogs could have this kind of sense, to find people buried under the rubble,” Guzman-McMillan told Animal Planet for the new documentary “Hero Dogs of 9/11.” “I felt total renewed life in me. … That was the most joyful moment.”

Genelle Guzman-McMillan August 07, 2011 was the last person to be pulled alive from the World Trade Center rubble In Manhattan New York.  Pictured here with husband Roger and daughters Kimberly (22) Kaydi (7) and Kellie (5) in their home in Valley Stream, Long island, New York.

She is pictured with husband, Roger, and daughters Kimberly, Kaydi and Kellie at their home in Long Island, N.Y., on Aug. 7, 2011.
——————————————————————-

Genelle’s story was one of several that inspired documentary producer Tanya Kelen. She decided to tell the story of some of the day’s heroes, who just so happened to have four legs and lots of fur. The special she produced, which aired Tuesday night on Animal Planet, spotlighted a number of incredible dogs, as well as the first responders, veterinarians and dog trainers who made their work possible.

There were more than 300 specially trained search-and-rescue dogs at Ground Zero in the days following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. They helped find survivors in the rubble and, later, found trinkets like jewelry that could be returned to victims’ families. Still more canines served as therapy dogs, helping survivors and first responders cope with their emotional trauma.

“We found a number of people who were too shaken up to share their stories,” Kelen said of her meetings with 9/11 survivors. “But Genelle said she had a mission to keep telling her story because she’d been saved.”

Animal Planet
The important work of search-and-rescue dogs is highlighted in the new Animal Planet documentary, “Hero Dogs of 9/11.”
————————————————————

Guzman-McMillan was one of about 15 employees from her team of Port Authority workers who all tried to evacuate the building at the same time. She is the only one of the group who lived. “I felt the walls cave in,” she recalled in the documentary. “It was dark and everything was rumbling.” Pinned under cement and steel and unable to move, she prayed and asked God to help her.

Although doctors told Guzman-McMillan that she would never walk again, she defied all odds and now not only walks but runs. She has since married and had two daughters, and she said she has an extremely strong faith.

Another incredible story about a dog’s love on 9/11 involves Michael Hingson, a blind World Trade Center employee who was led safely out of the building by his trusted canine companion, a yellow Labrador retriever named Roselle.

Michael Hingson is pictured with dogs at a 9/11 memorial wall 10 years after the terrorist attacks.

Hingson remembers encountering firefighters on his way out of the building. One of them stopped to pet Roselle and cuddle her, even though guide dogs aren’t supposed to be petted. Still, Hingson doesn’t regret what happened. “It was probably the last unconditional act of love he got,” Hingson said about the fireman, who was killed that day in the line of duty.

After 9/11, Hingson wrote a book, “Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero,” and became public affairs director for a seeing-eye-dog organization. Roselle traveled the world with him and died at the age of 13.

Dog who saved owner on 9/11 named American Hero Dog

Kelen and her crew also highlighted stories of people like veterinarian Dr. Cynthia Otto. Otto was in charge of health care for the 9/11 search-and-rescue dogs, some of whom got injured from stepping on debris or inhaling smoke. The special also showed how search-and-rescue dogs, many of whom are rescued from shelters, get trained to do their jobs.

“I’ve always been a dog lover,” Kelen told TODAY.com, “but it amazed me how many people didn’t know the story of the dogs at Ground Zero who were in charge of finding survivors.”

Please remember that all pets need loving homes.  And all homes NEED a dog.

Late addition to post: Many of you have seen Madge’s face here for a few months now and are familiar with her story. Unfortunately, this might be her very last pleas for help unless someone can help Canine Nation change Madge’s situation for the better. Madge has been kenneled altogether for over three months now and is completely miserable. In her time with Canine Nation, she’s sadly spent a majority of her time in a cage at various facilities and because of this her separation anxiety has worsened as well as her fear and defensive behavior with other dogs. She has gone absolutely kennel crazy and barks constantly, pacing day in and day out. It is obvious she cannot continue the path she is on now. This is their last plea for help for Madge as they have run out of options and funding and are desperately in need of a foster. Madge craves attention and human interaction as any dog, especially a previous abuse case, does. Madge needs the help from a loving, patient home now more than ever. She cannot make it further without your help. Please email caninenation@gmail.com ASAP if you can help. Madge needs your help today!

Wordless Wednesday: Way Up In The Sky

Slide Collage May 2014

I climbed up on the slide at the playground not thinking that the dogs would really follow me.

 They surprised me and themselves.

Now this is Sofie’s favorite hiding spot from Louise.  Go figure?

Happy Wednesday!
