Man's Best Friend until the end and beyond

This story caught my eye and I have to confess to having watery eyes as I post this:
Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson had a very close friend in his life – his dog, Hawkeye. Tumilson, a former San Diego resident, was killed August 6 in the Chinook helicopter crash that also claimed the lives of 29 other American servicemembers.
The photo to the right was taken by Tumilson's cousin and was emailed to Home Post with this message:
Hawkeye is/was his loyal “son”. To say that
he was an amazing man doesn’t do him justice. The loss of Jon to his
family, military family and friends is immeasurable. I hadn’t planned
on taking any pictures other than with family. However, from my seat
at the funeral, I felt compelled to take one photo to share with
family members that couldn’t make it or couldn’t see what I could from
the aisile. This is that photo…

The full story is HERE.

My prayers go out to Jon Tomilson who made the ultimate sacrifice for his country and his family. May he rest in peace.

What about Hawkeye?

May he rest in peace, and may his dog be blessed with peace, as well.
