Dogs have shown heroism, too

Published in THE JOURNAL NEWS, date unavailable:

A K-9 unit police officer apologizes for expressing grief over his deceased canine partner, "just" a dog, killed during his service at the World Trade Center disaster.

Do not apologize, Police Officer Chin.  Your canine partner was as important, and as much of a hero, as any other of the fallen rescuers in this horrific tragedy.

Their stars will shine together like diamonds in heaven.
