    Rest In Peace, Jake.

    NEW YORK (AP) -- A black Labrador that burrowed through smoking debris after Sept. 11 and flooded rubble after Hurricane Katrina in search of survivors has died after developing cancer.

    Owner Mary Flood had 12-year-old Jake put to sleep Wednesday after a last stroll through the fields and a dip in the creek near their home in Oakley, Utah. Flood said Jake had been in pain, shaking with a 105-degree fever as he lay on the lawn.

    Good dog, Jake.

    We are taking our Husky in for Xrays next week--he had blood tests, and they are negative. Now they think it may be cancer. Any tips, please?
