The Last Living 9/11 Search And Rescue Dog Got An Amazing Birthday Party For Turning 16


Tomorrow is the 14th anniversary of 9/11 and while unfortunately every year we forget some of the unifying positives that came from the adversity of that day in 2001, it’s nice to get a little feel-good story in remembrance and this one does it for me this year. Look at Bretagne’s face in all these moments!


The focus on her face when that gourmet burger comes in the room:

Her having no clue at all why everyone is excited when her face is up on a billboard in Times Square, presumably because dogs can’t even see that:

Hamming it up SO HARD after playing around in the water at the Tribeca Dog Run:

And seeing her owner/handler Denise, who obviously is as much a hero in her own right, tear up as Bretagne gets some of the VIP treatment as if it were all her own:

Just a beautiful video, beautiful enough to temporarily blind me to the fact this is a dog named “Brittany” whose name is spelled “Bretagne”. Like come on. But honestly amazing job here by Barkbox, A+ video all around. Thanks for your service, Bretagne. Keep wagging that tail, girl.
