This is Denise Corliss and her golden retriever Bretagne. They were both members of Texas Task Force 1, an urban search and rescue team that deploys to disaster sites to search for survivors.

Their first deployment together was at Ground Zero in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks. The two worked tirelessly on what started as a search and rescue mission but soon became a recovery operation.

The party concluded a profound gift: the dedication of a cobblestone on the grounds of the 9/11 Memorial, thanking Denise and Bretagne for their service. Hotel 1 also donated $1,000 to Texas Task Force 1 to help train dogs like Bretagne.
