NYT: Huggable by Children: Replicas of Dogs That Searched 9/11 Ruins

The New York Times reports today about plush puppy toys in honor of the search and rescue dogs which searched Ground Zero in the days after the 9/11 attacks in 2001. The toys are on sale at a store on Liberty Street operated by the Tribute WTC organization which operates a visitor and history center on the southern edge of Ground Zero.

The puppy toys were developed in response to frequent questions by visitors asking for something they could give to their children to start a dialogue with my children or grandchildren about 9/11?.
