A year in the life of our Miss Riley

RIP, Bretagne

on June 7, 2016

Bretagne, the last surviving S&R dog from 9/11, whom I posted about last year when BarkPost gave her an amazing day, has passed away.

I was bawling at my computer this morning when I read that members of the fire department with whom she had worked gave her an honor guard escort to the vet as their way of saying goodbye to this amazing canine hero.

Rest in peace, you wonderful old girl.


Bretagne, shown here at age 13, worked as a search dog at ground zero after the Sept. 11 attacks. She died Monday at 16, the last known surviving Sept. 11 search and rescue canine.
