Dog Heroes of 9/11

As we approach the fifth anniversary of 9/11, special observances and media presentations abound. When I saw this book I knew it was something unique.

We often forget about the highly trained canine workers that help save lives every day. Here are collected stories of their tireless contributions in the wake of those barbaric terrorist attacks. They arrived from all over the country to search for survivors (which were few) and body parts (which were many). A number of the same dogs also helped in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

At this writing, every single review on gives this book 5 stars -- the highest rating. It includes more than 250 color photographs and 77 interviews with handlers and rescuers.

Sales of the book will benefit the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation and help to train more four-legged heroes. So here's your chance to entertain and educate yourself while helping our nation to prepare for future disasters.
