911 rescue dogs. Over 100 dogs scoured ground zero. Today only 12 are still living. These are the dogs.
'Retrieved': Portraits of 9/11 Search Dogs - Photographer Charlotte Dumas photographed fifteen search dogs that were deployed to search the wreckage of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001. Out of nearly 100 dogs, only fifteen remained, living with their handlers across the United States. Now, years later, Dumas photographed them in series of dignified portraits included in her book, "Retrieved".
During the chaos of the 9/11 attacks, where almost 3,000 people died, nearly 100 loyal search and rescue dogs and their brave owners scoured Ground Zero for survivors. Now, ten years on, just 12 of these heroic canines survive, and they have been commemorated in a touching series of portraits entitled 'Retrieved'.The dogs worked tirelessly to search for anyone trapped alive in the rubble, along with countless emergency service workers and members of the public. This is Moxie, 13, from Winthrop, Massachusetts, who arrived with her handler, Mark Aliberti, at the World Trade Center on the evening of September 11 and searched the site for eight days

I love this. Hero Dogs of 9/11. During the chaos of the 9/11 attacks, where almost 3,000 people died, nearly 100 loyal search and rescue dogs and their brave owners scoured Ground Zero for survivors.

His Entire World...Homeless man and his best friend, Brandy the dog I found this homeless man with his dog, he was ever so gentle and loving with man's best friend. Chris told me his dog, Brandy, was all he had in the world. His last dog was taken away from him by the police because he did not have tags or a licence for the dog. The dog was euthanized. Killed by law enforcement! This is how they protect and serve. How can anyone be so heartless to take the only thing that a homeless person has? For that matter, whether homeless or not, our pets are sometimes the only love any of us really have. It's ironic, but Chris saved this dog as a puppy when it received a beating in a hotel room by a man that just threw the dog to the streets. Chris, being homeless, heard the puppy dog crying and being beaten and repeatedly hit. For as a homeless man he was in the nearby trees spending the night. Chris saved Brandy, and in turn Brandy has saved Chris. Chris and Brandy have such beautifully soulful eyes. Through all the pictures I took, this man was smiling. I kept wondering what made him so happy? Maybe it boils down to being happy with the one you love. How simple is happiness.

Why do I love dogs?
New Yorkers are crazy about their 4 legged friends. But living in the city also presents different challenges for pet owners. Though there’s a fantastic range of pets and pet supplies on offer, the city’s limited space, local laws, and the obvious dangers of such a busy metropolis bring a different range of problems with them.
uh....you're home early

Old dogs are the best!!
just a friendly reminder that for over a hundred years, pit bulls used to be referred to as “the nanny dog” and their main job was as babysitters.

Los #pitbulls solían ser llamados "el perro nanny" y su principal trabajo era el de ser niñeras - Just a friendly reminder that for over a hundred years, pit bulls used to be referred to as “the nanny dog” and their main job was as babysitters.
Pitt Bull aka Nanny Dog
Old photo pit bull and child 06
It would be funny if the new reputation did not mean 6,000 are put to death every day, by far the highest number of any other breed euthanized. That’s a lot of babysitters. (Pictured: As you’ll see, from the richest to the poorest and everything in between, in America the pit bull was the dog for kids. Don’t miss the little boy in the goat cart at the end. He’s priceless.)

One of my black cats looks like a Panther, lol. Black Panther Lounging by Chuck Hilliard.
Lazy days of summer for Big Cats, too... It's not all chasing, running, excitement...
Black panthers are beautiful creatures
black panther. Lazy day. :-)
Black Panther to the Caddo people of the southern bayous, Black Jaguar to the Maya of Central America. This great cat's medicine allows humans to face their fears and dark behaviors and embrace the shadowy aspects of being. The strength to embrace the Unknown, the Void, is its powerful gift to humans.
Black Panther, what a beautiful kitty cat, looks like velvet
