Star and I went out for a mother/dogter overnight backpack last night. It would have been easier just to stay at home and sleep in our cozy loft, but I decided we needed a mini adventure. Seeing the heartbreak this year has brought to many of the dogs and their families that I follow here has reminded me to cherish every minute I have with my fur family. After watching @longhaultrekkers, @laducb, and @airportk9 lose their heart dogs after their battles with cancer, and seeing Bailey of @acoucke dealing with those health issues now, and of course after @briannamadia’s dog Dagwood’s courageous battle to survive after being hit by a car last week, and seeing our friends @outsidefound lose their tiny puppy, and our friends @sometypeoffun lose their husky Lhotse at such a young age, it’s no secret that our time here is not guaranteed. Just one year ago the vet was scared that Star could spontaneously bleed out after her Thrombocytopenia relapse, but here we are, mostly healthy and fully happy and together. Our adventures are different now. Star is creaky. She has one busted ACL and one metal knee. She has arthritis. Sometimes she needs help getting over logs. But the moment she hits the trail she comes alive. I love seeing my happy girl and enjoy our adventures at every pace.

Some days I wake up and ask how I got so lucky to have you by my side as my best friend, side kick, PIC, trouble-making-fun-havin-cutie-pa-tootie soul sister. You make my life feel full and I am so EXCITED I get to walk so many more miles & witness so many more moons with you. You’ve been a soft place when the world is full of rocks and hard places. Growth isn’t easy, however it’s way more fun and manageable with you cheering me on. I will continue to dance all night with you until my legs give out. Happppiest solar rotation and cheers to being 29 AND FEELIN’ FINE!!!! #lifepartner #adventurebuddy #bestfriendroommate #29andfeelingfine #lastyearinourtwenties #soulsister #letsgo #birthdaygirl #spreadlovebelove
Weekendje climbing in Austria ☀️Good thing living in Augsburg!
First adventure of our honeymoon: PololŪ Valley Lookout. How are these views even real! 😍
Today was the BOLDEST day ever. Dom Carson was 24, trying to navigate the end of a relationship, and had no idea what she wanted to do with her life. The day she adopted Pippin from the @fmspca, she filled her little red car with all of her possessions and they embarked on an 8-hour journey south to a new city and a new life. Share your DAY ONE story (link in our bio👆) and tell us what word you would choose to describe the first day you brought your dog in to your life. Earth Rated prize packs are up for grabs!

Sad to be home from our beautifully relaxing week spent touring (and broken ankled Gav shuffling) around Oban, Seil Island, Mull and Iona. Many books were read; much coffee and wine drunk; spectacular beaches were explored; numerous lovely slow coastal walks had and some time taken to be embarrassing tourists around bonnie Scotland😍🚙⚓ #adventurebuddy #vanlife #fashion
Nothing makes me happier than to call you mine.... you put up with my craziness, take me out of my mood swings, laugh at my bad jokes, listen to me vent, act as my personal photographer, and best of all you love me no matter what 💕
Thank you @cam_quin for being the Ross to my Rachel, the Bob to my Linda, and the Prince Charming to my Cinderella 💏
