(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: 9/11 Dog Rescue Tribute

In the aftermath of 9/11 almost 100 Search and Rescue dogs spent day after day tirelessly combing Ground Zero for survivors. 

Ten years later, just 12 of these heroic canines are still alive. They have been commemorated through the talents of Dutch photographer Charlotte Dumas, and their stories are told in a book entitled "Retrieved."

If you're in New York City, you can see these stunning photographs, currently on exhibit at the Julie Saul Gallery, and at the Clic Gallery in NYC on September 29.
