Sirius Award

K9 Sirius

On September 11, 2011, the first two Sirius Courage Awards were presented by Lt. David W. Lim, a Police Officer with the Port Authority of NY & NJ, posthumously to the family of SGT Zainah Caye Creamer, USA, and to the family of Petty Officer First Class John Douangdara, USN.  Lt. Lim was on duty in the World Trade Center on 9/11.  His explosive detection dog, Sirius, a yellow Labrador Retriever, was killed in the attack – the only working dog to give his life in the line of duty on 9/11.
