Disaster Search & Rescue Dog Woody

Five years ago, when our television screens were filled with images at ground zero, we Golden-obsessed folks searched for images and tales of the wonderful Disaster Urban Search & Rescue Goldens. One of the dogs that I highlighted at my site’s page on these highly trained working dogs was Golden Woody.

In a recent article, firefigher Lt. Terry Trepanier talked about the 10 days that he spent on the pile with his guy Woody. I just love this passage:

The firefighter also recalled light-hearted moments. “I’ll never forget one member of our team who, during a rest period, asked, ‘Can’t you put that dog on Ritalin?’ ” Trepanier said.Woody, in Trepanier’s words, was bouncing off the walls. Energy is an asset in search and rescue dogs.

  1. There is nothing that can be said about these articles, these men and their dogs are true HEROES.
    If you don’t get a lump in your throat or shed a tear when reading these stories….well I just don’t know.
