Bretagne is the last known surviving search-and-rescue dog to work Ground Zero (her name's actually spelled Bretagne, but it's pronounced Britney.). Her handler, Denise Corliss from Texas, says 9/11 was their first assignment together.

Bretagne's 16th birthday was last month, and the website teamed up with a luxury hotel in New York to do something special for BOTH of them.

They flew the two of them to New York, stocked their hotel room with dog treats, had room service bring Bretagne a gourmet burger, put a billboard of them in Times Square, and threw a party where Bretagne got dog toys and a cake.

To top it off, the 9/11 Museum dedicated a cobblestone to them, and the hotel donated $1,000 to Texas Task Force 1, where Bretagne was trained.  Hundreds of dogs, of course, were involved in search-and-rescue after 9/11.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Bretagne!!!!
