    Loyalty

    Just got these pictures. They were taken at fallen Navy Seal Jon Tumilson’s funeral. His dog Hawkeye guarding him one last time.

    Not going to lie, these pics really tear me up.

    Very sad, Im a huge dog lover and of course a huge fan of our soldiers. Very moving though. Dogs are amazing creatures. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow, if that doesn't get to you and make you think, I don't know what will. Very sad deal. I'll be praying for his family and the rest of the families that have lost loved ones. Not to mention the rest of our brave men and women who are still in harms way.

    Here is the soldier, a University of Iowa graduate:



    Stories like this show that dogs truly are "Man's best friend".

    Re: Loyalty

    It definitely puts things in perspective. This soldier was that dog's entire world, and now he is gone. Not too mention the bigger picture that a soldier, and an Iowan lost his life. Makes things like football seem trivial.

    I'm definitely giving my dogs an extra treat tonight.
