 What a fantastic true story!    This is my special sharing for 9/11...
 
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, who Daisy just happened to pick up on floor 112
 
image.pngimage.png
                                                                                               
 
On her first run of the building, she leads James, James' boss, and about 300 more people out of the doomed building.
3 years ago
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 shared will be multiplied..

Thanks Val. I see that Australia is prominent. Should be. Way behind on environmental and animal welfare issues. Shocking actually.

At a local level I am concerned for two dogs (separate locations) that are continually chained. I followed up with Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. 

In the state that I live in it is legal to keep a dog chained for 23 hours a day !!

Can you believe it. Sounds like Romania to me.

Atrocities in the name of religion.
3 years ago

Thanks Val.

I am sick and tired of the hypocrisy of religions with their selective reading of the Bible, Koran or whatever. A source of justification for just about anything, depending on who does the decoding.

If ever you needed evidence that "God" is a creation of man for the benefit of man, then just tune into the cruelty to animals in the name of Christianity, Islam or whatever. Certainly animals are excluded from "god's" good works.Animals No God_002.jpg

    For those interested in stoping cruelty committed for fur, compassionate should better be extended to their "food". This creatures need a very loud voice that could be heard in Europe and anywhere this this could be happening. What do our "fur" eat in US?
