Single Saddest Picture Ever: Dog Refuses To Leave Soldiers Side At Funeral

Mans best friend.

Navy SEAL, U.S. Petty Officer 1st Class Jon T. Tumilson was killed on August 6 in the tragically successful attack by Taliban insurgents that took down a Chinook helicopter with 29 of his fellow soldiers. At Tumilson’s funeral held earlier this week in Rockford, Iowa, his dog Hawkeye paid his final respects by walking up to the casket and lying down in front of it.

The image of this crestfallen puppy was taken by Tumilson’s cousin Lisa Pembleton.

I don’t have much to say about this beyond the fact that it is the single most depressing picture ever taken. Beyond that, it pretty much speaks for itself.

We are still at war.
