Dog Heroes of September 11th

Nona Kilgore Bauer is the author of many books on dogs, but Dog Heroes of September 11th: A Tribute to America’s Search and Rescue Dogs changed her life.

She has written more books on her own breed, the Golden Retriever, than any other published author. While working on her “latest and greatest” book on the Golden, early in 2002, Nona received a photograph from a breeder colleague John Gassner of a FEMA search and rescue dog named “Louie.”

This senior Golden, with his noble expression and graying face, was sitting in front of a police barricade with the mass destruction of the World Trade Center in the background. The photo was sent directly to Bauer’s editor Andrew De Prisco at Kennel Club Books. Click link for full post from Dog Heroes of 911.
