Military Dog Who Suffers From Terminal Cancer, Gets Heartwarming Hero’s Farewell

That was a very emotional and hard goodbye moment between Cena and Lance Cpl. Jeffrey DeYoung his best friend. The Black Labrador Retriever dog, was laid to rest after serving as a U.S. Marine Corps Bomb-Sniffing for 4 and a half years.

Cena’s six months service in Afghanistan with DeYoung had formed unbreakable bond between them. There were many moments that gather them like when DeYoung carried Cena across rivers and when he kept him warm on the coldest of nights and while under heavy fire from the Taliban, he threw himself over Cena.

Conversely, when Cena comforted DeYoung because seven of his closest comrades were lost over a three-week period. They were separated and the distance was very tough because DeYoung was honorably discharged, however the dog continued for four more years as an active duty bomb sniffing Marine.

In 2014, Cena finally retired and immediately was adopted by his best friend DeYoung. They lived a special and beautiful life together, over the next three years. Fortunately, it was sweeping because Cena was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer and DeYoung was completely helpless.

It was hard moment when DeYoung decided to spend every day after Cena’s diagnosis organizing an exciting bucket list for him. DeYoung wrote about his last night with Cena that he is confused and he doesn't want to face that but he will be strong because Cena blessed his life with happiness and love. DeYoung wrote on his Facebook page a heartfelt massage to Cena the day after he passed away.
