This US Marines dog was given a hero’s parade in his final moments
Honourable pup Cena was a bomb sniffer in the US Marines.
A US Marines dog was given a grand farewell as hundreds of mourners gathered to say their final goodbyes to the pup, who was battling cancer.
Cena, a black Labrador, became a hero in Michigan after he served three tours in Afghanistan. He retired in 2014.
Before being euthanised, the 10-year-old Lab was taken on a final parade through the streets in his home town, organised by his owner.
He was then taken to USS LST 393, a museum ship in Muskegon, Michigan, where he was put down and carried off in a flag-draped coffin.
Thankfully, he received an abundance of affectionate pats, and was well-loved on his final journey.
