In Honor of Sirius as 9/11 Approaches

The beautiful Labrador Retriever in the pictures is Sirius, who died on 9/11. Going about his duties as a bomb-sniffer, Sirius was killed in the collapse of the twin towers. When Sirius' feeding bowl was found in the rubble of the World Trade Center, it was silverplated and engraved with the following: “I GAVE MY LIFE SO THAT YOU MAY SAVE OTHERS.” You can read tributes to Sirius and even see another tribute painting here.

If you pause this September 11 to honor those Americans killed in the terrorist attacks, don't forget Sirius.

Wow, before you talked about this dog in class, I never knew that this dog helped out in 9/11. We share a similar passion for dogs. May Sirius rest in peace.
