Read about this dog this morning and it really hit my gut.

Loyal to the end: Heart-breaking photo shows Navy SEAL's devoted dog guarding his coffin

By Mark Duell


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 Tumilson, 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.

I've been staring at this picture all week. It's just so emotional. It makes me give my pup a long belly rub every time. Heroes, the Seal certainly, but the dog in his own way, as well.
