(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday

Riley

Riley

He is one of the most famous dogs of Sept. 11 because of this photo taken of him at the World Trade Center site a few days after the attacks. In the photo, Riley is in a basket being sent over a 60-foot-deep canyon to search the rubble of the North Tower.  RIP Riley.

    • No – Riley retired and lived with his firefighter family. He suffered from skin issues believed to have been caused by contact with ground zero debris. He passed away 2/26/10. You can learn more about him here http://youtu.be/BvP6WwEafjA A true hero.
