A Flight Attendant on a Memorial Day flight. learned that the dog pictured, was Corporal Kiddy. She had just earned her retirement after 12 years with the U.S. Marines. An announcement was made to congratulate her on her career and the cabin erupted into applause. Upon hearing the sound the corporal jumped onto the nearest lap to graciously accept.
Canine Heroes. 9-11-2001 <3 I heard this dogs suffered all sorts of stress problems because they could never find anyone. Handlers took turns hiding in rubble to be located because the dogs were freaked out. So sad. My class raised $$ for search dog shoes among other things.
Ron Bucca arrived at the South Tower of the World Trade Center as smoke gushed out of its upper floors. He climbed the stairs up to the burning 78th-floor sky lounge, where scores were injured. As he started to fight the fire, the building collapsed. He died along with the people he had hoped to save.
The first search and rescue dog on the scene of the World Trade Center disaster on September 11. 2001, was Bear, an 11 year old Golden Retriever. He began recovery efforts immediately, working 18 hour days in the beginning. Rest in Peace, Bear.
