    Pretty amazing story. True bond between man and dog.

    Saw the idea on Twitter earlier today. Even as an Iowa State Fan, I think this is something Iowa needs to do.

    That's outstanding. Hats off for a great show of respect.

    Doesn't the SEAL have a Texas Longhorn shirt on in the picture by his casket?

    Re: I'm not a Hawkeye fan, but I've got to admit this is pretty neat

    They should think about having Hawkeye lead out the Iowa team at JT for the Iowa/ISU game. I think Cyclones and Hawkeyes alike would like to honor Jon. My buddy from Rockford who went back for the funeral is a Cyclone.

    By the way, I saw a comment after the story saying don't assume Jon was a Hawkeye fan; the dog was just named after the state. My buddy tells me that Jon was a HUGE Hawk fan and there is no question where Hawkeye got his name.

    On second thought, it might not be a good idea in JT since there is always even more booing than usual when the Hawkeye football team takes the field. It might be misinterpreted.

    Yeah, and in another picture he has a Horns shirt and hat on. I'm not sure what the story is there. When I next see my buddy from Rockford I will ask him.

    just because he has on a Texas t-shirt doesn't mean he is a fan, I own a Texas t-shirt but I dont like them, just a cool t-shirt...Hope Iowa does this it is a very touching story

    It's a nice honor for the SEAL but I don't think it helps the dog out. He just wants his buddy back.

    Re: I'm not a Hawkeye fan, but I've got to admit this is pretty neat

    No disrespect here, but I didn't read in the article anywhere where Jon Tulmison went to the UofI. Glad he was a fan and if that's it, so be it. Should let it rest and let the Hawks PR team do their thing.


    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives…..

    Re: I'm not a Hawkeye fan, but I've got to admit this is pretty neat

    I thought I read somewhere that he was indeed a Hawk fan, but it wasn't from a real source, just message boards. If that were the case, perhaps he was stationed somewhere in Texas for awhile, and just adopted them as his second team? I don't know, just a possibility.

    That photo is just gut-wrenching, though.

    Honestly, I couldn't care less what team he roots for. He is an American hero and that's all that matters to me.

    Touching story.


    But I don't think that is a good name for a dog(or anything for that matter).
