This 15-year-old golden retriever is the last surviving rescue dog from that awful day, and she walked the memorial site this morning with her handler, Denise Corliss “After 9/11, everybody – all of us, felt such sadness,” Corliss told NBC’s Tom Brokaw. “We all wanted to help. I just felt so honored that we were able to respond. I really believed we could find somebody – anybody, if we could just get to the right void space. But our reality was much different.”
