Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the
Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero by Michael Hingson ISBN-10 is
140020304X ISBN-13 is 978-1400203048
Description: A blind man and his guide dog show the power of trust and
courage in the midst of devastating terror.
It was 12:30 a.m. on 9/11 and Roselle whimpered at Michael's bedside.
A thunderstorm was headed east, and she could sense the distant
rumbles while her owners slept. As a trained guide dog, when she was
"on the clock" nothing could faze her. But that morning, without her
harness, she was free to be scared, and she nudged Michael's hand with
her wet nose as it draped over the bedside toward the floor. She
needed him to wake up.
With a busy day of meetings and an important presentation ahead,
Michael slumped out of bed, headed to his home office, and started
chipping away at his daunting workload. Roselle, shivering, took her
normal spot at his feet and rode out the storm while he typed. By all
indications it was going to be a normal day. A busy day, but normal
nonetheless. Until they went into the office.
In Thunder Dog, follow Michael and his guide dog, Roselle, as their
lives are changed forever by two explosions and 1,463 stairs. When the
first plane struck Tower One, an enormous boom, frightening sounds,
and muffled voices swept through Michael's office while shards of
glass and burning scraps of paper fell outside the windows.
But in this harrowing story of trust and courage, discover how
blindness and a bond between dog and man saved lives and brought hope
during one of America's darkest days.

"To me, music that breaks your heart is the music that stays with you
forever. It's one thing to be melancholy and one thing to be sophisticated,
but when you get the two of them together in a way people can relate to,
then I think you're on to something. You want the sophistication to lie in
the purity of the sound, the beauty of the arrangements, and the quality of
the performances."-Trumpeter Chris Botti
