Finding One Another: Courage Beyond Measure

(many thanks to Georgia Cawley for sharing her moving commemoration of the 9/11 rescue efforts)


The statue shown in the pictures below was done in memory of the GSDs who served and died in the 9/11 rescue effort. 

The Board Members of the GSDCA and the GSDCA-WDA and the Tails of Hope Foundation are helping to sponsor shipping the statue to the ceremony and it's relocation after the ceremony. 

What a beautiful tribute to the courage and work ethic of our breed.
