Poignant Photo: Fallen Canadian Soldier’s Dogs Wait For His Return




Dogs grieve. Humans grieve. Who can say that a human’s grief is more painful than a dog’s.

Two dogs owned by Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, the Canadian soldier who was killed in Ottawa on Thursday, were spotted peeking out from under a fence at his home.

Cpl. Cirillo featured the dogs prominently in his Instagram photographs, where he called the German Shepherd “my baby girl.”

Cirillo was killed on Wednesday by 32-year-old Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, who shot the soldier at close range as he stood guard at Ottawa’s National War Memorial. Zehaf-Bibeau was later killed after he ran into the Canadian Parliament building, firing his weapon. Canadian officials are calling his attack an act of terrorism.
