SOME HEROES HAVE 4 LEGS … REST IN PEACE SWEETIE.
Today is a sad day. Some posts are just harder to write than others, this is truly one of them …
Bretagne, the last known living 9/11 search dog has passed away at the age of 16. A statement from the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service says Golden Retriever Bretagne was put to sleep on Monday at a veterinary clinic in the Houston suburb of Cypress. Bretagne, (pronounced, “Brittany”), was just 2 years old when she and her handler, Denise Corliss, took part in the 9/11 search operation in New York. They spent 10 days at the scene searching rubble for human remains following the terror attack on September 11, 2001. Bretagne not only served at Ground Zero, but BarkPost explained she also helped with search and rescue in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Bretagne retired from active duty aged nine. And now we say goodbye to this precious and beautiful dog.
When it was time to say goodbye, she was given a hero’s farewell.
Firefighters and rescue workers lined the sidewalk as her body, draped in an American flag, was carried out. Tears streaked down some faces.
Bretagne, believed to be the last surviving 9/11 Ground Zero search dogs, was euthanized Monday.
The golden retriever was 16. Old age had slowed her down, and it was time to put her to sleep.
So, the firefighters at the Cy-Fair Fire Department in Harris County, Texas, lined the path up to the Fairfield Animal Hospital, as her owner, Denise Corliss, walked her in to be put to sleep.
Bretagne celebrates her 16th birthday in New York City
A doggy’s birthday for one of the brave who searched following 9/11 where Bretagne was given the “Kibble to the City”.
In September, BarkPost teamed up with 1 Hotels to give the beloved dog a day of celebration in New York City for her 16th birthday. The day was known as “Dog’s Best Day,” an on-going series from BarkPost that celebrates deserving dogs.
Bretagne was whisked throughout the city that day and given the hero treatment. It started with a limo at the airport and then a suite over looking Central Park at 1 Hotel.
Bretagne was then taken to see a personalized billboard in Times Square displaying a happy birthday message. She even received the doggie “Key to the City” presented by Hudson River Parks.
And as we say goodbye to a true American hero, Bretagne is walked, by her handler Denise Corliss, past a flank of members of the Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department and given a fireman’s funeral. Goodbye Bretagne, thank you for your service and your companionship. Rest in Peace.
If this does not bring a tear to your eye and a lump in your throat, you may not have a heart.
DOES IT MATTER IF IT WAS THOUSANDS, HUNDREDS OR SCORES … THERE WERE SOME MUSLIMS THAT CHEERED WHEN THE TWIN TOWERS FELL.
Politics is about embellishing the truth of your actions and those of your competitors. Donald Trump created a fire storm claiming that “thousands and thousands” of Muslims in Jersey City cheered the fall of the twin towers on 9/11. Some have called him a liar. Well, maybe not a liar, just stretching the truth a bit. It turns out that there were some Muslims in Jersey City, NJ dancing in the streets and celebrating the collapse of the Twin Towers in NYC on September 11, 2001. How do I know? I remember seeing the news coverage back then myself. The new media showed some shots from NJ as well as from the Middle East of Muslims celebrating the death of nearly 3000 Americans. For those who want to say it never happened at all are the liars. I think we can all agree that there are people who hate America.
So it wasn’t 10′s of thousands, but does it matter if it was only 100, 50 or 10. What are these people doing in this country and spreading their vile hate in America? If they hate us so much that they would celebrate, why are they here? The MSM knows damn well what happened that day, they reported on it. Semantics aside, there was cheering.
In the weeks since Donald Trump ignited a firestorm by claiming “thousands and thousands” of Muslims in Jersey City cheered the fall of the twin towers on 9/11, elected officials, religious leaders and a former state attorney general denied the existence of celebrations in the city that day.
Media outlets, after scouring archived news stories and video footage, could not find verified accounts of Jersey City Muslims rejoicing.
But in a new examination by NJ Advance Media, a police officer who worked on 9/11 and residents on the outskirts of Journal Square say they witnessed small pockets of people celebrating before the groups dispersed or were broken up by authorities.
Among the news organization’s findings:
• A retired police captain, Peter Gallagher, said he cleared a rooftop celebration of 20 to 30 people at 6 Tonnele Ave., a four-story apartment building with an unobstructed view of Lower Manhattan, in the hours after the second tower fell.
“Some men were dancing, some held kids on their shoulders,” said Gallagher, then a sergeant. “The women were shouting in Arabic and keening in the high-pitched wail of Arabic fashion. They were told to go back to their apartments since a crowd of non-Muslims was gathering on the sidewalk below and we feared for their safety.”
Sorry, MSM … Rush making a lot of sense, watch below.
So were there 1000′s, probably not. But there are probably thousands of people who witnessed the same incidents.
