In Appreciation of our 9.11 Canine Heroes: A Story You Must Read!

As we approach the anniversary of 9/11, here is a remembrance that

will touch your heart.

James Crane worked on the 101st floor of Tower 1 of the World Trade

Center.  He is blind so he has a golden retriever named Daisy.

After the plane hit 20 stories below, James knew that he was doomed,

so he let Daisy go, out of an act of love.

She darted away into the darkened hallway.

Choking on the fumes of the jet fuel and the smoke, James was just

waiting to die. About 30 minutes later, Daisy comes back along with

James’ boss, who Daisy just happened to pick up on floor 112.

 

On her first run of the building, she leads James, James’ boss, and

about 300 more people out of the doomed building.

But she wasn’t through yet, she knew there were others who were trapped.

So, highly against James’ wishes she ran back in the building.

On her second run, she saved 392 lives. Again she went back in.

During this run, the building collapses.

James hears about this and falls on his knees into tears.

Against all known odds, Daisy makes it out alive, but this time she

is carried by a firefighter. “She led us right to the people, before

she got injured” the fireman explained.

Her final run saved another 273 lives. She suffered acute smoke

inhalation, severe burns on all four paws, and a broken leg, but she

saved 967 lives.Daisy is the first civilian Canine to win the Medal of Honor of New

York City.

I hope you enjoyed this. I thought it was terrific.  Pass it on to all

animal lovers … remember love is to be shared to be  multiplied.

“Patience is a virtue that carries a lot of ‘wait’.”
