Shawnee, a poodle mix from Downey, California. "Pets were not allowed at this particular cemetery, but our dear friend loved pets, and they made an exception for Shawnee because she looked so festive," writes tigerpro14. "Right away the guard said, 'Oh! Isn't that sweet, go ahead. She can stay for 15 minutes only.' [Shawnee] took off so fast, like she knew where to go, and just sat there so sweet paying her respects to our veterans."
