  1. 🙁 Being the owner of 10 dogs and many more that have gone on to Rainbow Bridge, I understand the feeling of loss when one of our furry companions leaves us. Thanks Cpl Mosely and your companion Sgt Canvas for your service and sacrifice.

The people that run it are very kind compassionate so if you don’t find a suitable resting place for this fallen soldier consider contacting them. What a wonderful idea getting the Patriot Guard Riders to participate. Having to put a friend and companion down is a tough job and it is painful but you are to be commended for making a tough choice and putting this noble animal out of its misery.
