Terminal Lance’ Artist Creates Animated Tribute To Dogs (Video)

A Dog and His Boy

Marine Corps veteran Maximilian Uriarte is probably best known for his military-themed comic strip "Terminal Lance." Uriarte has broadened his talents, and recently created an animated short as a tribute to the love between military members and their dogs.

It's called "A Dog and His Boy." As Uriarte explained to Business Insider:

“We've all seen the story of a Marine going to war from the point of view of the Marine, but no one really thinks about telling it from a less obvious point of view like his dog back home.”

The animated piece is a work in progress, according to Uriarte's YouTube channel. I have to say, though, I can't imagine the finished project being any more emotionally honest and heartbreaking. Grab a tissue before watching.
