Daisy, 9/11 dog hero story. This is a true story which happened on 
9-11-01........
  James Crane worked on the 101st floor of Tower 1of the World Trade Center.
  He is blind so he has a golden retriever named Daisy. After the plane hit 
20 stories below, James knew that he was doomed, so he let Daisy go out of 
an act of love. With tears in her eyes from the smoke she darted away into 
the darkened hallway. James, now choking on the fumes of the jet fuel and 
the smoke he was just waiting to die...About 30 minutes later, Daisy comes 
back along with James' boss, who Daisy just happened to pick up on floor 112.
  On her first run of the building, she leads James, James' boss and about 
300 more people out of the doomed building. But she wasn't through yet, she 
knew there were others who were trapped. So, highly against James' wishes 
she ran back in the building. On her second run, she saved 392 lives. Again 
she went back in. During this run, and against all known odds, Daisy makes 
it out alive, but this time she is carried by a firefighter. "She lead us 
right to the people, before she got injured" the fireman explained. Her 
final run saved another 273 lives. 
  She suffered acute smoke inhalation, severe burns on all four paws, and 
a broken leg, but she saved  967 lives. The next week, Mayor Guilaini 
rewards Daisy with the Canine medal of Honor of New York. Daisy is the first 
civilian Canine to win such an honor.
