and his dog Daisy. The man is James Crane that worked on the 101st floor of the 1st tower of the world trade center. The reason I love the tale, is its my love for ANIMAL TALES!
James was blind so he had his golden retriever always with him when he went to work at the world trade center. Her name Daisy was always by his side. So after the plane hit 20 stories below, James he knew that he didn't have much of a chance to get out, so he let Daisy go, out of his love for his best friend. Once James did she darted away into the darkened hallway, he hope that at least his Daisy would get out.
James sat on the 101st floor choking on the fumes of the jet fuel and the smoke knowing that he would die soon. However, happily about 30-minutes later his Daisy returns with James boss, who Daisy happen to pick up on the 112 floor. So after, she came back for her master James she lead, his boss and about 300 other folks she had found on the floors to safety. Down the many steps of 101 floors. But Daisy wasn't done, she knew there were others that were trapped in the building. So against James wishes she ran back up the smoky stairs, leaving James to wonder if he would ever see Daisy again. As Daisy ran up the stairs the building was breaking apart around her on her second run up the 101 flight of stairs. Daisy, again went back into the collapsing building as James hears, what everyone saw in horror[that day Sept 11] the collapse of the tower 1 collapsed before there eyes. James then falls to his knees into tears knowing that his Daisy is gone!
However, I wouldn't have posted this tale if there wasn't a happy ending my dears friends & follows. I love a good Animal-Tales storey with a happy ending. Well it seems that Daisy had a guardian angle because against all odds, she made it out alive of the collapsed tower, but this time she wasn't walking on her own. She was being carried by a firefighter.
An firefighter had said, she had saved 392 lives before she found us then she lead us
to more folks before she got injured. Daisy final run saved another 273 lives before the Tower 1 had collapsed. In doing so she did suffer acute smoke inhalation, severe burns on all four paws and a broken leg. In the end she saved 967 lives.
James beloved Daisy became the first civilian canine to win the Medal of Honor of New York City. So that is my Animal Tales for today I loved that story it is an old one and I forget where I found it but I felt that in honor of Animals that I had to share. Love you all
Very very much my dear Friends & Followers
