This Mom Lost Her Son To War. 3 Years Later, She Grants His Final Wish.Ashley Maisano
Sergeant Joshua Ashley and his military police dog, Sirius, were best friends. Sadly, Joshua was killed while in Afghanistan by an IED; Sirius was by his side during it, but he survived. During the last phone call he had with his mother, Tammie, he was telling her how he wanted her to take Sirius until he was done serving; she promised him she would. Now, three and a half years later, his mother fulfilled that promise.
Sirius just retired from the marines and was given to Joshua’s mother, where she picked him up at the Ontario airport. She said the loving way Sirius acted toward her was like he knew she was Joshua’s mom. Now, Sirius looks up to Joshua’s little brother for commands. Having Sirius is bittersweet; they don’t have their beloved Joshua anymore, but the pup is like having a piece of him with them.
