Bretagne was a search and rescue dog during the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks and was recently honored with a 16th birthday celebration in New York City.

This sweet girl was part of Texas Task Force 1 and was responsible for locating people trapped in the rubble of the fallen Twin Towers. And now she's getting the recognition she deserves thanks to BarkPost, a dog lovers blog.

Bretagne had a better birthday party than I did! She got a cheeseburger, played with toys and got to take a tour of New York City in a vintage tax.

On a day that brings so much heartbreak for us it's really nice to see something that brings a smile to your face.
