Navy SEAL U.S. Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Jon T. Tumilson was among the 30 American troops killed August 6 when Taliban insurgents downed their Chinook helicopter with a rocket-propelled grenade. At his funeral in Iowa, his dog Hawkeye paid his last respects, walking up to the casket, lying down in front of it, and heaving a sigh.


  1. I can believe this as our dogs really love us and that dog knows who is in there. God bless them and God Bless America. Richard from My Old Historic House.

  2. That is so sad and so sweet and so....
    so apropro.

    Heart wrenching.

    I agree with Richard.... God Bless him, and them and God Bless America.

  3. This just breaks my heart but at the same time it's so sweet. I'm turning off this computer and going out to hang with my Dylan dog!

  4. I copied this and posted it on FB. This just breaks my heart and i love it at the same time.
    Have you seen the heartwrenching youtube video of the Marine coming home and the dog going nuts all over him?? It is sooo priceless. It makes me ball!!

  5. When I saw this and read the story it just broke my heart.

    The relationship we have with anyone, friend, family, companion, pet, is so meaningful. It makes me realize the poignancy of our life here.
