Hundreds Give Tearful Farewell to Hero War Dog

Hundreds turned out to bid farewell to the hero dog whose Marine veteran partner created a container list for him after he was detected with bone cancer. Cena, a black labrador who served three tours in Afghanistan as a bomb-sniffer with the Militaries, lived his final years with Lance Cpl. Jeff DeYoung, as his service pet dog.

DeYoung and Cena were first attached in 2009 after a character test, and later deployed to Afghanistan together. In 2014, the pair reunited when DeYoung adopted Cena as his service pet for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He said having Cena around made it much easier for him to be in public.

Last week, a veterinarian diagnosed 10-year-old Cena

with bone cancer and offered him weeks to live. DeYoung set out to produce enduring memories with his cherished pooch, which included taking a flight in a Jeep with the top off. DeYoungs wish came to life on Wednesday, as he and Cena stacked into a decorated Jeep named Cancer Action Group for one last trip together.

Cena wore his decorated Marine vest as DeYoung brought him in front of hundreds to a museum ship in Muskegon, where he was euthanized. He was carried off in a flag-draped casket.

A GoFundMe page was started to help DeYoung cover the cost of a headstone.
