Sirius Lim
Birth: Jan., 1997
Death: Sep. 11, 2001

[Note: This stone is a cenotaph, not a grave-marker. Sirius was cremated at Hartsdale Pet Cemetery and the remains given to Officer Lim. Another memorial page for him is here.]

Explosive Detection Dog. Badge #17, NY/NJ Port Authority Police Department. The only police dog to die at the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, Sirius was a yellow lab who graduated from the Port Newark K-9 Center in 2000 and went to work with Officer David Lim of the Port Authority Police. They were assigned to the World Trade Center, where their duties included searching vehicles entering the complex, clearing areas for V.I.P. safety, and disposing of unattended bags. Sirius died in the basement of Tower Two. His remains were found four months later and carried out with full police honors. In April 2002 he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross at the British Embassy in New York, and later that month a memorial service was held for him at Liberty State Park in New Jersey, just across the river from the World Trade Center. More than two hundred people and K-9 units from various parts of the country attended the service, many wearing black ribbons over their badges. Described as a "loving member of the Lim family," Sirius was said by Officer Lim to have been "very special." "We were very close," Lim said. "No matter where I went, he went. Whatever I asked him to do, he did. He never complained. Sometimes we'd be working for long hours, searching hundreds of cars or trucks, and he'd just look at me like, 'What do you want me to do now?'"
