HAPPY #EARTHDAY ๐ŸŒŽ


0

Today we said farewell to our eldest, beautiful, psychotic, happily-wiggling Tatum Belle. As many of you know, #BerneseMountainDogs have an incredibly short life expectancy (6-8 years). My family was lucky enough to have Tatum for just over 11 years! Everyday she filled our hearts with laughter and joy. Her wiggles, her songs, her stubbornness... they made her a phenomenal friend and the best of dogs. I had the honor of holding her head in the last minutes of her life, kissing her softly and telling her just how wonderful she was. The family was there, we all got to say our goodbyes, and got to console each other after the meds kicked in and laid Tatum to her final slumber. Afterwards, my dad and I spent an hour in the backyard digging her a grave. Unlike most of our other dogs, we decided we needed to take her home and bury her, rather than getting her cremated. We chose a spot where she spent many of her days; and after we placed her in the ground, each of us took a handful of dirt to throw into the grave before covering her up for good. Tatum Belle was a good dog, we were lucky to have her as our part of our lives. ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿพ #restinpeace Tatum Belle

This photograph pretty accurately describes how wonderfully wrong everything went yesterday - maybe nothing turned out the way we had planned, but this will forever be one of my favorite Mondays ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผโ›ฐ๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿถ

โ›ฐ๏ธ go where you feel most alive โ˜€๏ธ For @alfredthealfie and I, thatโ€™s the mountains. Take me to any trail, it doesnโ€™t matter. As long as I can get lost among the trees; feel the wind full of life as gusts rip through my hair; and feel the sun beating down on my skin feeding me energy with every day of sunshine. Hiking makes us happy. Hiking allows us to breathe and really feel OK. Hiking through the woods, anywhere in the mountains, makes us feel alive. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ“ท: @echeath
