a truly precious story...
heartbreaking yet heartwarming at the same time.
but first, get the tissues ready.
now i'm sure you've all heard the tragic story
about the navy seals who were shot down recently.
heartbreaking doesn't begin to describe it.
as their bodies are being flown home,
they are being laid to rest by family and friends.
but one navy seal, Jon Tumilson,
was laid to rest by a very special friend...
his DOG, "Hawkeye"!
i didn't even need to see the photos before bawling all over the place...
but once i did, it just broke my heart.
at the funeral, Hawkeye, his loyal companion,
would not leave his side. he laid by the casket throughout the whole service.
like i said...heart breaking yet heart warming.
i adore my dogs and have often said that if anything happened
to me, little Freddy should probably be by my side.
i don't mean to sound morbid but this dog can't function without me.
he won't eat and will run from room to room,
whimpering and frantically searching if I should happen to be out of sight.
on most days,
he and Maui are my most loyal friends... and that's fine by me:)
so I thought I'd share some of my favorite dog quotes, starting with a long one
that is WELL WORTH READING!
i hope you like them too:)
