One final ride for Cena, Marine bomb dog diagnosed with cancer

One final ride for Cena, Marine bomb dog diagnosed with cancer

Cena, a 10-year-old old black lab, received a hero's farewell Wednesday before being euthanized at the USS LST 393, a museum ship in Muskegon, and carried off in a flag-draped coffin.

A final ride for a veteran K-9 who served in the Marines - that's what Cena's owner wanted, and what he got. It slowly took Lance Corporal Jeff DeYoung's wartime partner - his little brother Cena.

A bomb-detection dog, Cena first connected with DeYoung at Improvised Detection Dog training July 2009.

He then adopted Cena in 2014 when the dog retired and the mutt helped him cope with his post-traumatic stress disorder.

"My whole adult life I've had Cena".

Trump dines with Sean Hannity, former Fox executive Bill Shine and Scaramucci
But let me tell you about myself. "If he's gonna be that divisive, I'm not sure he's gonna be very useful to the President". It's worth noting that there was in fact no leak behind Politico's publishing of Mr Scaramucci's financial disclosure form.

Hundreds of people attended to say goodbye to Cena, whose body was carried away in a USA flag after he was put to sleep. DeYoung said Cena kept him warm at night and comforted him when he lost seven friends in three weeks. Jeff DeYoung, gained national attention this week after DeYoung created a bucket list for his furry friend once learning that he had bone cancer, culminating in a final ride in a topless Jeep in their community. "Whenever I grab his vest off the peg and he gets up and he says, 'Where we going today?' Just him, It's gonna be tough".

The ceremony was attended by the U.S. Marine Corps League, Michigan State Police, Muskegon County Sheriff's Office, Muskegon City Police, Muskegon Fire Department and officers from several other departments, including a canine officer named Rex. All the support, all the love people are giving him, he can see it and he can feel it, and he's deserved it.

"Every Marine has to go out in a set of dress blues", said DeYoung.

A GoFundMe page has been set to help raise funds to buy Cena a headstone. Once they were both back stateside, Cena acted as a service dog, helping DeYoung cope with PTSD.
