A Dog’s Best Day

Published On September 11, 2015 | By Dave Palmer | Blogs, Mornings

There’s a Golden Retriever named Britney who’s the last surviving search-and-rescue dog to work Ground Zero after 9/11.

Her handler is a woman from Texas named Denise Corliss, and 9/11 was their first assignment together.  And since Britney’s 16th birthday was last month, the website BarkPost.com teamed up with a luxury hotel in New York to do something special for BOTH of them.  They flew the two of them to New York . . . stocked their hotel room with dog treats . . . had room service bring Britney a gourmet burger . . . put a billboard of them in Times Square . . . and threw a party where Britney got dog toys and a cake.

And to top it off, the 9/11 Museum dedicated a cobblestone to them, and the hotel donated $1,000 to Texas Task Force 1, where Britney was trained.
