Navy SEAL Says Goodbye To Longtime K9 Partner And Friend.

"Our hearts are now much heavier having to say goodbye. Fair winds and following seas C-man, we have the watch from here buddy."

Mike Ritland, a former U.S. Navy SEAL, recently took to Facebook to pay tribute to a fellow SEAL member’s K9 partner who crossed the rainbow bridge.

“Mike had to mention goodbye to Carlos today, after 15 amazing years of blessing this Earth together with his presence,” Ritland said. Mike and Carlos were partners for several years, and after retirement, Mike was ready to adopt him permanently. Ritland also needs to work with Carlos when he worked at the program as a trainer.

“He is trapped within the flag that Mike carried with him on every operation with him, and still possessed Afghan dust as he unfolded it on him,” Ritland continued. Mike gave Carlos his favorite food steak, the last meal before the dog left this life.

“Our hearts are now much heavier having to mention goodbye,” Ritland concluded the heartfelt post. “Fair winds and following seas C-man, we've the watch from here buddy.”
