Writes: Dear Mickey
We just wanted to send a note to let you know that, through the horrible events of the last few days, we have all our American friends in our thoughts and in our prayers. What affects you, our close neighbours and friends, affects us too and may you somehow gain some small strength knowing that Canada, as well as many other nations, are with you.
We have been glued to the television set, watching many different stories unfold.... and amid the many, many tragic and sad tales, there are also those of incredible bravery, patriotism and hope. Among the courageous rescue workers in New York City there are also many brave dogs working to find survivors, and Zelda and Zoe would like to acknowledge their effort too. Perhaps you might consider posting a tribute to them on your forum? What do you think?
|RESPONSES FROM THE BOARD|
Thanks, thanks, thanks, for helping to keep us dogs on the ball.
Dear Mick- All I can do is pray for them and I guess be really glad I'm lousy with obedience! Fuzzy Hugs Lucille
A rescue dog's work goes far beyond anything I can imagine. Thank you, rescue dogs, one and all, for helping people even in dangerous situations. When I look at this U.S. Navy photo by Journalist 1st Class Keres of the big brave Golden being swung over to his rescue work in a shaky boatswain's chair, I get goosebumps. I'm so proud of him. I salute you, big Golden, and every other search-and-rescue dog!
Dear Mickey, Please first my apologies for not writing earlier. I have been overwhelmed by the events of September 11 and am in awe of what some of our brethren have done. In addition to those " in uniform " there was Roselle, the golden retriever seeing eye dog who brought her master from the upper reaches of the WTC down the steps to safety. And there are also those poor canines ( probably felines and avians as well ) who have been left homeless and in need of foster care or better adoption.
Do you think that there is anything that we could do to help those canines suffering such a loss: there is much talk of the people, and help forthcoming, but what about those that do not make the media? With best regards, yours truly, Dummy Whittom
