(AP) More than 100 K-9 dogs and their police handlers gathered Wednesday in a tribute to Sirius, the only police dog to die in the World Trade Center disaster.
As Officer David Lim went to help evacuate the trade center when it was attacked Sept. 11, he expected to return for the dog he left behind in a basement kennel.
But the towers collapsed, and Lim, a Port Authority of New York and New Jersey officer, was trapped in the debris for several hours. No one was able to save the 5-year-old yellow Labrador retriever, a bomb-sniffing dog for the trade center.
On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, the Explosive Detector Team for the World Trade Center – consisting of Lim and Sirius – were in their South Tower basement office when the first plane struck the North Tower. Officer Lim put his 4-year-old partner in his kennel and headed off to the damaged tower to help
“I told him, ‘I think we’re in a lot of trouble right now,’” said Lim, who assumed he and Sirius had somehow failed to detect an explosive. “I said, ‘I’ll be back for you.’”
But before Lim could return, the events of the day unfolded, the South Tower collapsed followed by the North Tower, burying Lim on the fourth floor with six firefighters and an injured woman. The people were all safely rescued five hours later.

Ok you say, the dogs will have gone mental with the large volumes of explosives? not at all... if it cannot smell it, then its not even going to know its there! The British army learnt this the hard way in NI during the war with the IRA.

First, 3 explosions would not ahve bought down the WTC
ONe thing that it always not mentioned, is that the man in charge of the WTC, was on the upper floors and radioed down that he saw major structural damage to the elevators and the support structure, and he was scared the tower would fall. He needed someone up there to verify. This was the exact same man who in Jan 2001 in an interview stated that the WTC could take a hit from a 707 and survive. So, the same guy who you quote as saying it would survive a hit, was calling for help because he knew it was going to collape. This occured less than 20 minutes after the impact.

Well, of course there were explosions. There were explosions as trapped gasses ignited. There were explosions as the support beams began to buckle and flaming gasses were compressed and expanded. Water pipes exploding as they were heated to steam. All kinds of things exploding and blazing away. Even a lot of falling stuff that was so noisy and boomy that I'm sure they sounded and felt like explosions.
". . .Whereas the investigation of the Challenger disaster received $50 million, Bush promised only $3 million for the investigation of the much more deadly and complex disaster of 9/11. He then initially resisted when the commission asked for an additional $8 million."
