Sir Ian McKellen was, and still is, the most dapper of gentlemen.
@jaybellbooks Life imitates art #jaybell it honestly drives me insane that no one see’s the beauty in reading anymore. I wish everyone had this book in their hands and read and learned the lessons this author has to offer. It’s an lgbt book but this applies to anyone. No one has ever made me feel like they understood my struggles in life or love more than Jay Bell does through his works. Something Like Spring is honestly the epitome of what a great writer can do. My heart broke and put itself back together so many times while on my journey through this book and I can’t put into words, just how good it feels. if I could give infinite stars I would. This man needs more recognition for his writings.
These are some of them, most were golden retrivers and labradors, but also included german shepherds and other breeds. Sadly most are dead now, while many people forget them and don’t spare them a thought.
As people lay dying, trapped and hurt, a team of nearly 100 loyal and courageous search dogs put their lives on the line to help humans. Without them, many more would not have survived, yet few people consider them.
In such a chaotic, terrifying, hot, acrid-smelling, smokey and loud environment, countless human lives depended on their ability to focus, listen, respond to their handlers, and work tirelessly. Stepping over cracked glass, hot tarmac, through flames and thick smoke, being winched over deep ravines, they battled on to seek out survivors and bring them aid.
They worked around the clock, day and night, searching, sniffing, over and over. Not only did they search, but they comforted - many eyewitnesses speak of how the dogs would stop and sit by newly-recovered victims, giving them a sense of hope and relief, before moving on to look for the next. As the situation became desperate, and the rescue workers and fire teams became utterly distraught at the amount of people who were recovered dead, these dogs brought them comfort, sitting with them on breaks, letting them grieve.
Many of these dogs are old, and have passed away. Let us remember the courage and loyalty they showed at such a horrendous event. They didn’t have a choice, but nonetheless they did what was asked of them and helped save countless lives. Don’t let their bravery be forgotten today either, or their determination to be a ‘good dog’ despite the scary and dangerous environment around them.
