A memorial service for a cancer-stricken service dog who served three tours in Afghanistan with the Marines drew a crowd of a couple of hundred in Lyon Township, Mich., on Saturday.
Cena, a 10-year-old black lab, was interred with other military service dogs, the Detroit News and MLive.com reported.
State Sen. Mike Kowall says Cena “has done a fabulous job” and now “is welcomed home.”
The dog was a bomb-sniffer for the Marines until retiring in 2014. Cena became a service dog for Lance Cpl. Jeff DeYoung, the dog’s first wartime partner. He organized a celebration last month in Muskegon that drew hundreds before Cena was euthanized
