The annual K9 Memorial, hosted by Curlew Hills Memory Gardens, hon- ored three K9 service dogs in April. K9 teams from several Bay Area law enforcement agencies were on hand for the ded- ication. There are now 46 K9 service dogs laid to rest in a dedicated section of the Pet Cemetery. The plots are all donated by Curlew Hills Memory Garden. This year, a special


tribute was given to Sirius, the only dog to have died during the September 11 attacks in New York City. K9 handler, Lt. David Lim (shown right with Sirius), recalled that 9/11 was the most painful day of his career. Sirius had been his partner for a little more than a year. When the planes crashed into the Towers, Lim put Sirius in his crate in the north tower and began to lead people out of the building. Lim was in the fourth-floor stairwell when the north tower began collapsing around him. He was one of 16 people to escape that tower. Sirius died in the collapse. “It was like losing a family mem- ber,” said Lim, who retired this past July after 34 years with the New York Port Authority.
