This heart-wrenching photo shows how a Navy SEAL’s dog refused to leave his master’s side during an emotional funeral. 

Petty Officer Jon Tumilson, 35, killed in the major U.S. helicopter crash in Afghanistan this month, was remembered by around 1,500 mourners.
But it was his Labrador retriever Hawkeye that really captured the public’s emotions in the photo taken by Mr Tumilson’s cousin, Lisa Pembleton.

Mr Tumlinson, of San Diego, California, was one of 38 killed on August 6 when a rocket-propelled grenade took out a U.S. Chinook helicopter.
His funeral was held on Friday in his hometown of Rockford, Iowa, at the Rudd-Rockford-Marble Rock Community School.

hope the dog bounces back.


best/saddest story i read about war dogs was the one where dude got snipped and his dog jumped on top of him to protect him from more fire. dog even snapped at the rest of the squad that tried to touch his owner.

I wanted to dismember this dude with my bare hands. SMH.
Man, why even post that... Buzz Killington over here.

I remember this dude without clicking the link.  The marine who threw the puppy over the cliff? The $!$$%% needs to be dismembered limb by limb then beheaded and have his body parts sent to his family.
