Photo Friday: A Dog's Loyalty

This image was one of Buzzfeed's 45 Most Powerful Images of 2011.

It's a photo of "Hawkeye," the dog of slain Navy SEAL, John Tumlison.

Tumlison was part of the Navy SEAL team that was killed by enemy fire when their Chinook helicopter was gunned down in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011.

During the funeral, the Chocolate Lab wandered over to his owner's casket and lay next to it through the service, refusing to leave his side.

As a huge dog lover, this image makes me tear up every time I see it.  Dogs are the physical embodiment to unconditional love and unyielding loyalty.  We have a lot that we can learn from dogs.

Here are the two fuzzy loves of my life!
