Marine K-9 with cancer takes one last emotional ride with veteran

28 Juillet 2017

Just a couple of weeks ago, Cena was diagnosed with bone cancer and had little time left at his home in MI. He said Cena kept DeYoung's body warm during cold desert nights, and comforted him when he lost seven friends in three weeks.

A final ride for a veteran K-9 who served in the Marines - that's what Cena's owner wanted, and what he got. In 2014, the pair reunited when DeYoung adopted Cena as his service dog for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). "When I was 19 overseas learning how to be responsible, I had Cena".

Cena was recently diagnosed with bone cancer, and a ride in an open top Jeep was at the top of DeYoung's "bucket list" that he made for his dog.

Cena wore his decorated Marine vest as DeYoung carried him in front of hundreds to a museum ship in Muskegon, where he was euthanized. "And now I'm 27 and I'm having to say goodbye to one of the biggest pieces of my life". Jeff DeYoung and Cena a 10-year-old black lab who was a military service dog ride away for his last ride before being put down aboard the LST 393 in downtown Muskegon, Mich., on Wednesday, July 26, 2017.

Chicago White Sox vs
Anthony Rizzo had a base clearing double in the fifth, while Arrieta only had a few minor slip ups in the victory. The Cubs have been the best team in baseball after the All-Star break since 2015 with a 110-50 record.

DeYoung said he has carried Cena across rivers and thrown his body over him while under heavy fire from the Taliban. "Every Marine has to go out in a set of dress blues".

It's always hard to say farewell to our four-legged friends, but Cena the dog received a legendary send-off to honor his years of American service. "The support, all the love people are giving him, he can see it and he can feel it".

A GoFundMe page to help raise donations toward a headstone for Cena has already met its goal.
