Sgt. Canvas, a military service dog, spent most of her life in deployment in the Middle East. This awesome dog served the country for most of her life, helping the armed forces by sniffing more than 70 kinds of bombs and explosives. But when Cpl. Moseley, the dog’s partner and handler, found out that she suffered from a severe spinal injury, he knew he couldn’t bear to see his best friend in so much pain.
A unique and unbreakable bond
Cpl. Moseley and Sgt. Canvas share a relationship like no other. As partners, they’ve always had each other’s back, especially during their perilous deployments at war. Sgt. Canvas is a skilled dog who can detect several types of bombs, and her alertness saved Cpl. Moseley and his team numerous times.
Life in deployment can be sad. Cpl. Moseley was thankful to have the dog by his side when he gets homesick and lonely. They’ve become the best of friends and family, and they couldn’t bear the thought of living life without the other.
A loving goodbye for Sgt. Canvas
After several years of military service Sgt. Canvas sustained a grave spinal injury that’s been giving her so much pain. Cpl. Moseley saw the disease take away the dogs joy and energy, and he couldn’t bear to see in such pain. It was with a heavy heart that Cpl. Moseley decided to allow Sgt. Canvas cross the rainbow bridge so she wouldn’t be in so much agony for so long.
The day that two are to bid goodbye, their local community decided to show support and community spirit. They were escorted with several motorist groups and spent the time to say goodbye to one of the country’s heroes.
It’s heartbreaking to see someone bid his best friend and family goodbye, but it’s also amazing to see a community band together to give the military her one last salute. Farewell, for now, Sgt. Canvas, you’ve done an excellent job for the country.
