These are some of them, most were golden retrivers and labradors, but also included german shepherds and other breeds. Sadly most are dead now, while many people forget them and don’t spare them a thought. 

As people lay dying, trapped and hurt, a team of nearly 100 loyal and courageous search dogs put their lives on the line to help humans. Without them, many more would not have survived, yet few people consider them. 

In such a chaotic, terrifying, hot, acrid-smelling, smokey and loud environment, countless human lives depended on their ability to focus, listen, respond to their handlers, and work tirelessly. Stepping over cracked glass, hot tarmac, through flames and thick smoke, being winched over deep ravines, they battled on to seek out survivors and bring them aid. 

They worked around the clock, day and night, searching, sniffing, over and over. Not only did they search, but they comforted - many eyewitnesses speak of how the dogs would stop and sit by newly-recovered victims, giving them a sense of hope and relief, before moving on to look for the next. As the situation became desperate, and the rescue workers and fire teams became utterly distraught at the amount of people who were recovered dead, these dogs brought them comfort, sitting with them on breaks, letting them grieve.

Many of these dogs are old, and have passed away. Let us remember the courage and loyalty they showed at such a horrendous event. They didn’t have a choice, but nonetheless they did what was asked of them and helped save countless lives. Don’t let their bravery be forgotten today either, or their determination to be a ‘good dog’ despite the scary and dangerous environment around them.

OH MY GOD, THIS FUCKING NERD.  I LOVE HIM SO MUCH.

It’s hilarious because, yeah, egotistical and a monument to his own face, but it struck me as how that’s 100% an Asgardian thing to do.  Everything I have ever learned about Asgardian architecture and design, from studying all the different sources as best I can, is two things:

They love giant ugly statues and E V E R Y T H I N G is made out of gold.

The only thing Loki is missing here is a water feature and I would not be surprised if he put a goddamned fountain in the middle of that big ugly statue of himself.  SERIOUSLY, I LOVE IT, IT’S SUCH AN ASGARDIAN THING TO DO, YOU CAN TAKE THE LITTLE SHIT OUT OF ASGARD, BUT YOU CAN’T TAKE THE ASGARD OUT OF THE LITTLE SHIT.
