Friday, March 16, 2012 – I needed to be distracted today and what better place to do it – Pinterest! What I kept coming across was this image of a dog lying by a soldier’s casket. I kept seeing it over and over… by the fourth or fifth time I was in tears and crying, especially after reading the story behind this picture.
The funeral was for Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson, who had died in Afghanistan. Tumilson’s Labrador retriever, Hawkeye walked up to the casket at the beginning of the service and lay down with a sigh. He lay there through out the whole service. I can’t imagine the loss the dog must have been feeling… Dogs are very loyal to their owners.
My dog is lying by my side and I keep looking at her and keep thinking how much I love her. She is my little angel…
