No Stronger Bond, Than A Dog To His Master: Even In Death

I saw this on Twitter and I went to the page and I thought my heart would crumble at the pure love that this friend showed his master, even in death. Do Not Ever Tell Me That Animals Have No Soul:

Petty Officer Jon T. Tumilson was laid to rest Friday in Rockford, Iowa, where an estimated 1,500 mourners came to pay respects for the fallen Navy SEAL, including his dog Hawkeye. In fact, Hawkeye’s loyalty to his owner at the funeral was visible, creating a heart-wrenching image as he laid down by the casket of his owner during the entire service:

The unbelievable loss of life that continues unabated in wars that the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces refuses to be victorious in, who chooses to lead from behind, is even more heartbreaking.

I cannot think of a more humane time to suggest that when you consider adding a pet to the family,  that you think about getting a rescue animal, they will love you as if you just saved their life, because you have.

  1. Jaded….this brings on the tears, for sure. My better half is a former police K9 officer, and there is simply nothing else like the bond between humans and dogs. In fact, most dogs are more loyal than most people. And that, as VB says, is a law.

    Let us not forget that among those reported lost on the same helicopter was was of the awesome Military Working Dogs deployed with the Seals, and of course, there was a MWD on the Bin Laden raid as well. All dogs, but especially MWDs, have a special place in our hearts at our house. For the past two years, we’ve headed up a local project to send Christmas “care packages” to MWD teams…started as a Girl Scout troop project and then last year under the auspices of a local humane group. We are thinking of turning it into its own non-profit, and if there’s interest, I’ll keep folks here at UP informed.

  2. Heard an interesting theory that some anthropologists are toying with now, that humans are not an independent species of late, that mankind is so dependent upon canines and vice versa that for the last 4000 years or so we are more a symbiotic, codependent species. Man gave up his acute sense of smell and canines gave up hunting, to join each other and survive together. At our house we love our cat (as well as the two dogs) too, but this gets no argument in principle from me. And no arguments about that soul part either, Jaded.

    • That is quite interesting jack, it will get no argument from me either. I have seen amazing things from animals, I volunteer with a rescue organization, the things that happen to them and still they are wanting the touch and love of a human to make them whole again.
