The dog of fallen Navy SEAL Officer Jon Tumilson refused to leave his owners casket at the officer’s funeral earlier this week, Animal Planet reported.
Tumilson’s cousin Lisa Pembleton captured the loyal pup, Hawkeye, resting alongside Tumilson’s casket at the Rockford, Iowa ceremony.
KPBS reported that the former San Diego resident was killed Aug 6th in the Chinook helicopter crash with 29 other American service members.
Pembleton contacted KPBS’s Home Post publication:
