The last living 9/11 search dog passed away yesterday just 2 months shy of her 17th birthday. She received a beautiful send off by firefighters as she was led into the vet with her handler.

Hero's send-off for last-remaining 9/11 dog Bretagne | Metro News

A friend of mine was there reporting on the event and he said he hasn't cried that hard in years, and everyone, including the male firefighters, was crying. I watched the video clip in that link, and I cried.

These brave and usually unsung heroes saw the best and the worst in man.

Fly with the angels, Bretagne.

I have a great affinity for all animals (well, nearly all) but there's nothing in the world like a dog. Rest in peace, girl.

I personally know the heartache of losing a beloved animal companion, especially when you've had to make the very difficult choice of bringing suffering to yourself by ending their suffering. The hardest thing I've ever done and no matter how many times you do it, it never gets easier, only harder. I have nothing but respect for those in protective and emergency services who work with and love these beautiful animals and establish powerful relationships with them along the way. Losing such a colleague must be very difficult for them.

RIP Bretagne, and comfort to those whose lives you affected and impacted along the way.
