I remember reading this, and what a beautiful story the folks have to 
remember about a guide dog.

Every saint has a past
every sinner has a future

>>      James Crane worked on the 101st floor of Tower 1 of the World Trade 
>> Center . He is blind so he has a golden retriever named Daisy. After the 
>> plane hit 20 stories below, James knew that he was doomed, so he let 
>> Daisy go, out of an act of love. She darted away into the darkened 
>> hallway. Chok in g on the fumes of the jet fuel and the smoke James was 
>> just waiting to die. About 30 minutes later, Daisy comes back along with 
>> James' boss, who Daisy just happened to pick up on floor 112.
>>      On her first run of the building, she leads James, James' boss, and 
>> about 300 more people out of the doomed building. But she wasn't through 
>> yet, she knew there were others who were trapped. So, highly against 
>> James' wishes she ran back in the building.
>>      On her second run, she saved 392 lives. Again she went back in. 
>> During this run, the building collapses. James hears about this and falls 
>> on his knees into tears. Against all known odds, Daisy makes it out 
>> alive, but this time she is carried by a firefighter. 'She led us right 
>> to the people, before she got injured' the fireman explained.
>>      Her final run saved another 273 lives. She suffered acute smoke 
>> inhalation, severe burns on all four paws, and a broken leg, but she 
>> saved 967 lives. Daisy is the first civilian Canine to win the Medal of 
>> Honor of New York City.
>>      I hope you enjoyed this story. I thought it was terrific
