This dog’s sweet 16 birthday is nothing short of spectacular.
Golden retriever Bretagne is to believed the last 9/11 surviving search dog to have worked tirelessly alongside her handler Denise Corliss sniffing through Ground Zero after the World Trade Center attacks. When dog blog BarkPost heard that this pup’s 16th birthday was approaching, they wanted to make her day extra special.
“After hearing Bretagne’s story and learning that her 16th birthday was coming up, there was no question in our minds that she deserved a Dog’s Best Day for the ages,” wrote Laura Hartle, creative producer for BarkPost video.
The pair were flown up from Texas to New York City and whisked away to Manhattan’s Hotel 1 where the dog was presented with her own special hamburger.
Upon returning to the hotel, Bretagne had a whole bunch of toys, treats, a dog-safe birthday cake and a $1,000 donation from the hotel to the Texas Task Force, the organization Bretagne was apart of.
