*WARNING* You WILL cry but I had to blog it! Touching story of a Heros "Best Friend"

**WARNING: Readers you will cry reading this post and the article that it originated from**

So I was laying here in bed, having just finished posting my song for "What's YOUR Song" Thursday link up. I was perusing FB and saw a post that caught my attention "Dog mourns at casket of fallen Navy SEAL". Immediately after opening the article and seeing the picture I started crying. I am not sure that it has ever been documented at least that I have seen of the affect of the loss of a person on their Furry companion. Reading the article just broke my heart, I remember how Leonidas acted after hubby transferred last October. He knew somthing was going on but just couldn't understand it. I am pretty sure that is why he is such a cuddlebug, maybe because he doesn't want to be left behind again. I can't wait to see his reaction when he finally sees his daddy after a full year apart! I know he will remember the mister's scent! He will know that it's time to play again because he used to only play with Daddy and he would just cuddle with Mommy. If this article touches you like it touched me, please share it!

Rest In Peace 1st Class Petty Officer Jon Tumilson, A True American Hero! I pray that you look over your Furry friend Hawkeye and help him find comfort in the wake of your untimely death.

RIP 1st Class Petty Officer Jon Tumilson
1976 - 2011

  1. That article made me cry too. There was some documentary or something I watched in college and it was about this man who died of old age, and for the past 2 years his dog, went out every day to the end of the driveway and waited for him to come home. Breaks my heart.

    I know Kimo, right before Daniel left was so sad. That day he knew something was wrong and wasn't acting like himself. And for the first month+ of the deployment he would only eat his food curled up on top of Daniel's shorts. He probably still would but I finally picked them up. lol
