Watch Tonight's Tribute to the Hero Dogs of 9/11

Dogs have been man's best friend for millennia, so it is not surprising that they stepped up to serve in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Now, 12 years later, Animal Planet will air a documentary that chronicles the untold stories of the tireless dog heroes and their handlers to commemorate the anniversary. Be sure to tune in on Tuesday, September 10, at 8 p.m. EST/PST.

I first met the director of the documentary, Kenn Bell, creator of the Dog Files, at a pet blogging conference where we were honored to view the premier of the hour-long tribute. There were very few dry eyes at the end of the program, but I felt compelled to buy a copy of the disk for my children to watch. It was was a perfect window for them to have a better understanding of the historical event that changed the landscape of our country forever. Even though our suburban lives feel far removed from the tragedy, we could relate to the hard-working dogs that look like ones close to home.

The threads of the story weave together to show the different capacities dogs assisted in escapes, rescues, recoveries and soothing the tattered workers of Ground Zero.  

 This program comes with my highest recommendation for you and your family. This compelling piece will challenge us to respect our canine heroes and make our world a better place for humans and dogs alike.
