A sad image that appears to sum up the grief felt across Canada over the killing of Candian reservist, Nathan Cirillo.
Cpl Cirillo, who served in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, had been guarding the Canadian Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at a remembrance service before being shot dead by gunman Michael Zehaf-Bibeau.
The 24-year-old reservist was known to be devoted to his dogs, with friends talking of him recently finding an emaciated and abandoned puppy who he nursed back to health before re-homing it.
Speaking about the now healthy puppy only four weeks ago, he said: ‘Found him a pretty home, hope he has a good life.’
As the images show, Cirillo’s kindness and devotion was reciprocated by his two dogs.
He had been raising his six-year-old son, Marcus, alone with the help of his own mother, Kathy.
She has been described by a family member as being ‘just completely broken.’
