A Day Remembered.. by Norwood

hi every bloggie!

Yesterday we did a few things in remembrance of 9.11.
Okay here's me and momma right after we finished
running 9.11 miles. Yup. I did it too in honor
of all the dog heroes. That's the furtherest I've ever run .

Finished our 9.11 dedication run

We planned out our run pawfectly. At the half way point
we stopped to participate in a ceremony at the Hudson Fire Dept.
That's me checking out the cool trucks.

Hudson Fire Dept

The Hudson Fire Dept waited two years to obtain a steel girder
from the World Trade Center. Today they unveiled the new memorial.

It was a truly honorable ceremony.
Momma had to remove my bear bell b/c I was making too much noise.
I didn't mean too.

Camera Roll-90

Here it is. The new memorial.
Can you believe that piece came from the WTC?
I'll be silent while you view it.

I don't know if you can tell in the black and white,
so I put it in color. Amazing how the sun sent its sun rays right on it.

Here's the local newspaper's article and a photo gallery of the event.
I'm glad I went and also ran to honor our canine heroes.


  1. We got a piece here too Norwood. I still get so sad at all the lives lost that day. I wish we could all just get along.
    love you,
    Sharon & Bruce:)

  2. OMD, Norwood, you has a piece of the World Trade Center ofur there by you, too! We woz silent when we viewed ours. Good fur you fur running 9.11 miles. My hike woz 8.13 coz we runned out of trails. It woz a little park where we woz at. But I runned a few laps around my yard to make up the difference.

    Pee Ess - Furry skeery story about you chasing that deer and being AWOL in the city streets! I chased a deer when I woz a yungun but I woz the one with my heart pumping out of my chest cos all of a sudden I realized I lost my mommy! Furget the deer, I had to go back and find my mommy and I decided it woz not worth chasing deer and losing my mom so I dussn't chase them any more.

  3. Hey Norwood!
    Wow, what a great tribute. Love the black and white with the colored flag. The sun was shining all over America one way or another. Great post.
    Grr and Woof,
