The 9/11 Dogs Today

I received this as an email from a friend of mine. I felt that it was worth sharing and honoring these hero dogs.


9/11 Dogs Today
 
Nearly 100 dogs worked at the trade center ten years ago; only 13 are left.  THESE OLD WONDERFUL FACES SAY IT ALL...  These are the surviving dogs that worked the trade center that are still alive but retired, they are heroes too.  Their eyes say everything you need to know about them. Just amazing creatures
 
True heroes of 9/11 still with us today

Scout and another unknown dog lie among the rubble at Ground Zero, just two of nearly 100 
search and rescue animals who helped to search for survivors.
During the chaos of the 9/11 attacks, where almost 3,000 people died, nearly 100 loyal search and rescue dogs and their brave owners scoured Ground Zero for survivors.  Now, ten years on, just 12 of these heroic canines survive, and they have been commemorated in a touching series of portraits entitled Retrieved.  The dogs worked tirelessly to search for anyone trapped alive in the rubble, along with countless emergency service workers and members of the public.
 
Traveling across nine states in the U.S. from Texas to Maryland, Dutch photographer Charlotte Dumas, 34, captured the remaining dogs in their twilight years in their homes where they still live with their handlers, a full decade on from 9/11.  Their stories have now been compiled in a book, called Retrieved, which was published on the tenth anniversary of the attacks.  Noted for her touching portraits of animals, especially dogs, Charlotte wanted Retrieved to mark not only the anniversary of the September 2001 attacks, but also as recognition for some of the first responders and their dogs.
 
"I felt this was a turning point, especially for the dogs, who although are not forgotten, are not as prominent as the human stories involved," explained Charlotte, who splits her time between New York and Amsterdam.  "They speak to us as a different species, and animals are greatly important for our sense of empathy and to put things into perspective."

  4. I'm here to testify about what DR. Odoma did it for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 2 years and had constant pain and itching, especially in my private parts. During the first year, I had faith in God that I would be cured someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Shayla Bosschart on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. Odoma on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advising anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him. I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. Odoma prepared and sent me Healing Soaps, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after two weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more itching , pain on me anymore as DR. odoma assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test and the result came out negative. So friends, my advice is if you have such a disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, HIV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact DR. Odoma for help via email} drodomasolutionhome20@gmail.com or visit his website{ https://drodomasolutionhome.simdif.com/ } whatsapp him through his mobile} +2348100649947
