    Dog Refuses To Leave Dead Navy SEAL’s Side

    “Hawkeye” paid his last respects by walking up to the casket, lying down in front of it, and heaving a sigh. His owner, Marine Jon Tumilson, passed away on August 6 when Taliban insurgents downed his helicopter with a rocket-propelled grenade.


    Blah. It's as great to see just as much as it sucks. That just sucks. Love that dog though. That's great.

    Why do I feel more compassion for animals than I do for people?

    Don't feel bad, I'm the exact same way. I connect better with animals. I have bad social anxiety and am somewhat of a misanthrope.

    Hawkeye didn't stray away from Tumilson's casket... That's loyalty...

    Because animals don't seem as evil as man does. They don't act with hate, aren't racist, or homophobic. When animals do bad/negative stuff, you go hey, it's an animal, it's what animals do and all. People, for the most part..can generally suck. A guy cuts you off in traffic and you almost go off the road, you call that man an asshole and every other name..ya wanna kill him. A dog runs out in front of your car and you shit yourself trying to avoid hitting it, and you hope it's ok etc...You never think of the dog as being an asshole. There is no ill will towards animals. I wanna go punch my cat right now for not being a dog.

    People can learn a lot from animals. Dogs know how to give unconditional love, trust, and loyalty and will never stray. They are there for you no matter what. That dog will be depressed for quite some time now and I feel just as bad for him as I do for his master getting killed. :(  Makes me sad.

    Because you can't argue over nerdom with animals.
    ...unless of course you're drunk.

    Dogs are interesting. I have 2 right now. One is totally driven by food. She's my pup for sure, but if a complete strange walks up with a treat. She's by them until she gets it, and until then in her mind, I don't exist.

    My other pup, I'm pretty sure she'd lay down her life for me. I can walk her without a leash, and I've never done any recall training. She just walks right beside me. She sits next to me, and if I fall asleep in my chair, she'll stay there all night with me. If someone has food, or a treat, she might go for it, but if I called her, she'd be right back near me without a second though of the treat.

    Needless to say, I feel far stronger bond with the second one than I do with the first because of the love/affection she shows over everything else. That, and the first dog eats her own crap. ;)

    There are tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat.

    Very sad but a beautiful testament of love, friendship and duty.

    Salutes to them both.

    I'd put "Doesn't argue with you over nerdy minutae" into the plus columns for dogs.
