    Default Not all heroes are people...

    Love this story. Thanks for sharing. Now I will do the same.


    Not all heroes are people...


    James Crane worked on the 101st floor of Tower 1 of the World Trade Center.
    He is blind so he has a golden retriever named Daisy.

    After the plane hit 20 stories below, James knew that he was doomed, so he
    let Daisy go, out of an act of love. She darted away into the darkened hallway.
    Choking on the fumes of the jet fuel and the smoke James was just waiting to die.
    About 30 minutes later, Daisy comes back along with James' boss,
    w
    ho Daisy just
    happened to pick up on the 112th floor.

    On her first run of the building, she leads James, James' boss,
    and about 300 more people out of the doomed building.
    But she wasn't through yet, she knew there were others who were trapped. So, highly against James' wishes she ran back in the building.

    On her second
    run, she saved 392 lives. Again she went back in. During this run, the building collapses. James hears about this and falls on his knees into tears.

    Against all known odds, Daisy makes it out alive, but this time
    she is carried by a firefighter. "She led us right to the people, before she got injured" the fireman explained.

    Her final run saved another 273 lives. She suffered acute smoke inhalation, severe burns on all four paws, and a broken leg, but she saved 967 lives. Daisy is the
    first civilian Canine to win the Medal of Honor of New York City.

    I hope you enjoyed
    this story. I thought it was terrific.
    Pass it on to all animal lovers. Remember love is to be shared to be multiplied.

    GOD bless you, Julie and thank you for sharing this.
    I'd never heard it before. I've owned several Goldens.
    For all their goofiness, there's a lot of smart hidden.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    What a beautiful story
    My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies,
    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.
