Dog ‘sings’ for fallen canine heroes


Gillette, WY (KCWY) — As we approach Memorial Day, we’re reminded to honor and thank our fallen heroes who have served to fight for our freedom.

There’s one dog raising her voice to honor the canines who have served alongside the men and women of our country.

Belle is your ordinary great dane. She loves tug of war, long walks, romping around with her brother and sister and giving hugs…all 125 pounds of her. But what makes her extra ordinary is her love for this country and those who have fought for it.

Now the K9’s have someone to sing for them.

“While I sing for our fallen heroes, she sings along for the canine fallen heroes,” says Moe Disney-Griffitts, Belle’s owner.

When Belle wears her American flag bandana, she knows she has a job to do.

“She simply goes into that job,” Disney-Griffitts says. “It’s her duty, I think she feels.”

And she may only be two-years-old, but she’s wise beyond her years.

“She was a puppy and just would follow me to my little studio at home, and instead of jumping up and down and making a fuss she started humming along and whining along,” says Disney-Griffitts. “Before we knew it, we had her singing along with me every time I sang.”

Now Disney-Griffitts sings with Belle to honor fallen heroes…human and canine.

“She came with a gift, as a gift, and with a gift I believe, and the way that she has helped is kind of a shiny spot in all the sadness,” says Disney-Griffitts. “because she’s touched everybody’s heart.”
