The most thrilling farewell: a firefighters’ group came to praise the 9/11 rescue dog’s remembrance

It becomes apparent that dogs are capable of safeguarding the lives of many people once again.

While dogs become the closest companions, you could ever imagine, there is something about them that everyone is not able to stand more than anything.

These four-legged creatures will honor you, not paying attention to who you are, they will provide you with real friendship, respect, faithfulness, and love; but we all have to accept the heartbreaking fact that these flawless companions will only be with us temporary. Maybe that is the reason why these animals are awesome from the beginning. Possibly if they had lived longer, they would have become impudent or self-confident. However, the best thing we can do is love them with all our hearts as well as look after and respect them while they are next to us.

Sooner or later, the time arrives when we have to farewell, and it is not an easy matter for Denise Corliss. After living together with her cute gold-colored retriever Bretagne for 16 years, she looked into his eyes and understood that her closest friend had to leave. But there is unique thing about Bretagne that makes this farewell worth seeing for all Americans. Bretagne’s loss is really the termination of an era.

Exceptional gratitude to Jennifer Bauer of KPRC2 for shooting this touching tributary.

Please carry on looking through in order to become aware of Bretagne’s awesome route, who was the 9/11 rescue dog with no flaws.

Denise Corliss found Bretagne in 1999. The animal possessed great perspectives in seek and rescue, and after effective strategy, the duo united with the forceful class of Texas Task Force 1, a seek and rescue team prepared to seek through the rubble.

Corliss and Bretagne practiced and practiced but didn’t seem to get any action. They got ready for the hurricane season, but, luckily, nothing horrible occurred.

Everything took a different course on one of the lucid days of September. His premier rescue assignment will be after 9/11.

When the Twin Towers collapsed in New York City, Texas Task Force 1 entered. At the time when Corliss witnessed the horrifying degree of harm, he was fully amazed.

But Bretagne knew her missions and her duties. She snapped her man out of her stupor, and the two of them frantically searched the ruins for survivors.

It is evaluated that there were about 300 other rescuers during those terrible periods after 9/11. Everyone believes and prays they can discover another survivor.

But that day the dogs did more than rescue lives, they rescued souls as well. The pure existence of these dogs is reported to make the firefighters’, rescuers’, and lifeguards’ day who had no reasons to smile during these hard times. They supported the PTSD caused by the events and spectacle of these attacks, and only for that, we should all be grateful.

After 9/11, Bretagne carried on providing seek and rescue support during various other catastrophes, involving Hurricanes Katrina and Ivan.

He eventually pensioned from the game, but not after assisting to rescue lives and getting innumerable fellows along the way. She remained at home with her owner Corliss and lived calmly in retiral. She was becoming pretty adult for a dog of her size, but her laughing never come to an end, and yet liked to “hunt” around the house.

But a month later after her 17th birthday, Bretagne refused to eat and appeared to lose weight rapidly. She had problems with kidneys, and it became obvious to Corliss that the time arrived to farewell her best friend.

Bretagne acted like a hero when it was a hard period for our country, but what is most significant, she was a friend to her man. Dogs appear in our lives and remain for such a short period of time, but the influence they have on our souls and hearts proves just how heavenly they truly are.

Corliss made up her mind to take her closest companion to the vet clinic for the ultimate time. But when they reached there, they witnessed a really heartbreaking scene.

A firefighters’ group came to praise Bretagne’s remembrance for her service. As in all military burials, group members greeted Bretagne in such an emotional way you’ll ever imagine.

Corliss tried everything to control herself, but she was crying in a reasonable manner. She has been with Bretagne since she was a little puppy and they have had so much mutual over the years. So, farewelling an old and best companion as well as a family member like Bretagne must have been really surreal.

Denise Corliss, we are very downhearted about your loss. You together with your dog were ready to assist people at the hardest period of their lives. This is surely the termination of an era and we can only believe you can find calmness despite Bretagne’s death.

While we are disheartened by her death, we cannot help but rejoice that he could spend such a long-lasting and entertaining life in a place where he was truly appreciated.

Our gratitude to you both for serving our land.

Be kind to look at the hero’s ultimate way and support us hold in high respect her remembrance.

Also, be kind to share this emotional story in case you are grateful.
