Thank you, Dutch

This is just a quick post to honor a special dog.

On Monday evening Presidio Dutch of Alto Mare, TDX, SWDX, SAR, MI-TF1 died. Dutch was the first Portuguese Water Dog to ever earn a Search and Rescue Certification, a Cadaver Certification and a FEMA Urban Search and Rescue Certification. He also earned the PWDCA Super Dog award.

Dutch and his owner-handler Connie Millard were at the World Trade Center as seen here.

Dutch is a hero to those in the PWD community and we will miss him.
