(FOX NEWS) - One British veteran has found a unique way to forever salute his military dog.
Retired Army Sgt. Dave Heyhoe lost his cherished black Lab, Treo, last October.
Before being adopted by Heyhoe, Treo had worked by his side in Afghanistan, sniffing out explosives.
The Lab was later awarded the PDSA Dickin Medal – the highest award available to animals serving in military conflict.
His owner decided to commemorate their time together in a special tattoo, bearing Treo’s paw print, medallion number - and even his ashes.
